Tanning bed lamps, also known as tanning bed bulbs, emit ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) light. People with skin types I and II, the most sun-sensitive skin types, should probably avoid indoor tanning as well as outdoor tanning. For people with skin types III through VI, indoor tanning in moderation can provide a convenient, efficient alternative to outdoor tanning.
