When Not to Tan

You should not tan if you have any of the following conditions:

·If you are pregnant or nursing a baby, tanning may not be recommended. You may need to consult a doctor before being exposed to the sun for long periods of time.

·If you have tanned previously in less than 24 hours. Wait at least 24-48 hours before tanning again.

·If you are on certain types of medications, do not tan without talking to your doctor. Certain medicines are photosensitive and can cause you to burn or have unpredictable skin discolorations. Medication lists are available for you to review at each of our locations. If uncertain you should always ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Even when it is okay, it may be best to use tanning beds at a tanning salon. This helps regulate how much UV light you get.
