There is no set amount of time that a person should tan. When tanning indoors, the duration of your indoor tanning session depends on your skin type, how long you've been tanning, and the whether you are using a home tanning bed or tanning canopy, or a commercial tanning bed or booth.
To tan properly, you should set a tanning schedule with the help of the tanning salon attendant. If you are using a home tanning bed, you should follow the manufacturer's recommendations included in the owner's manual. If you are new to tanning, remember, less is best. Tanning time could be as little as five minutes for your first attempt.
