Things to do before UV Tanning?
What Should I Wear to Tan?
While some people choose to wear a swimsuit or minimal clothing, the privacy of indoor tanning salons does allow for nude tanning in order to avoid streaks and tan lines. Skin that has not been exposed to UV light before is more sensitive and as such tans more slowly.
How Long Do UV Tans Last?
Building up a tan from our UV tanning sessions can cause tans to last for almost a lifetime. What’s important is to maintain that tan through considerate and consistent sessions. Leaving a gap of anywhere between 1 to 2 weeks between tanning sessions is recommended.
How Do I Maintain My Tan?
It is best to avoid chlorinated water while the spray tan is still fresh and new on your skin as this can cause colours to fade faster, additionally, cutting down on the amount of shaving to a minimum is important as this exfoliates the skin. The best time to start normal skincare routines is after the tanning starts to fade naturally.
When Should I Shower After?
The best time frame to shower after spray tanning is at least 5 to 8 hours. It is also important to avoid any swimming or sweating as well as moisturising products and exfoliation before the first shower to prevent any uneven streaks.
What Should/Shouldn’t I Use On My Skin After?
Avoid scented lotions, astringents, acidic cleaning solutions, and peroxides as any harsh chemicals can wear away the tan much more quickly. After the first shower, it is important to persistently moisturise with natural-fragrance free lotions.
Know Your Skin Type
Ask your technician before getting into a session to check your skin type. Some skins are more sensitive to UV rays than others.
UV Tan Dubai
We all love tanning - the process of getting our skins exposed to the sun to get the perfect bronze shade all over the body. It's pretty exciting how sitting in the sun can change the body's hue, yet, at the same time, it can also cause skin irritation, sunburns, and rashes.
The good thing is that now you don't have to tan your skin with the traditional method, as indoor UV tanning offers a convenient approach to all those worrying about sunburns and skin cancers!
So, stick till the end to explore all about UV tanning, why it's a better approach than direct sunbathing, and popular indoor UV machines. Also, if you're searching for sunbeds near me, now is the perfect time to visit Plush Tan - a reliable, renowned, and safe indoor tanning salon in Dubai!
What is Indoor UV tanning?
When the UVA rays from the sun reach the epidermis - the outermost layer of the skin - they penetrate deep to stimulate the melanocytes. These cells are responsible for creating melanin which is skin pigment. The more melanin produced, the darker the skin will be. Also, spending more time sitting in the sun will cause these cells to move closer to the epidermis resulting in a darker hue on your outer skin. Indoor tanning is different from direct tanning as it includes applying a cosmetic tan using a device that emits UV rays. These UV rays then trigger melanin production and give the skin the desired tanning look.
A horizontal tanning bed and various tanning machines are popular devices in this regard found in tan salons, gyms, spas, hotels, and sporting facilities, and less frequently in private households. We at Plush Tan take pride in our excellent, safe, long-lasting indoor UV tanning while respecting your privacy simultaneously!
Why Indoor UV Tanning Instead of Direct Sunbathing?
Here are some of the many reasons indoor tanning is popularly replacing direct sunbathing worldwide.
1) Indoor UV Tanning Saves Time
A maximum of fifteen minutes per day for a few weeks is recommended to sit in the sun to get an even tan. However, not everyone has access to the sun because of time and place constraints. You may be working all day and get free only on weekends; in such a case, direct tanning won't be a healthy option given the uneven tanning it can provide to your body.
An indoor tanning salon provides relief to those always walking with piles of workload while wishing for a tanned body. You can visit any of our Plush Tan salons to give your body the perfect bronze it's missing while staying rest assured the professional staff will take its enough care!
2) Indoor UV Tanning is Safer
Another point to consider is that there is no specific limit to how safe sun exposure is. You may never know when a sunbath becomes too much for your skin to bear, resulting in sun or heat rashes, sunburns, blisters, and even skin cancer.
Also, most people believe that a slight reddish or pinkish hue on the skin means adequate sun exposure. But is that true? NO, because a red tint on the skin means a sunburn and a reaction of too many UV rays entering your body and burning it.
Contrary to that, indoor tanning is a decent alternative to secure your skin from the limitless dangers of the sun. Indoor tanning focuses most on controlling variables that can otherwise endanger the skin, such as light exposure.
Since direct sun exposure can contribute to sunburns and over tanning, salons use special equipment to ensure the skin remains safe from itching, burning, or uneven tanning.
3) Indoor UV Tanning Lasts Longer
Lastly, a direct suntan is prone to fade over time with an estimate of 7-10 days as the outer layer of the skin exfoliates itself. Conversely, indoor UV tanning lasts longer than natural tanning, for all you have to do is maintain your UV tan after a base coating is finished. The surprising thing is that the UV tanning sessions can last almost a lifetime, saving you from the hectic of taking out time from a busy life to take a riskier sunbath.

viii)Indoor UV Tanning Tips
Before Getting a Tanning Session
Before you get started with indoor UV tanning, there are things that you should do to prepare your skin so that your tan will last longer and look better.
Preparing your skin for tanning includes showering the day before visiting the tan salon. It will open up your skin pores, washing away dirt and debris, leaving you with clean skin.
Also, shaving and exfoliating before a tanning session is recommended. It removes the dead skin cells making the skin further clean. Healthy, clean skin will help boost melanin production, and you'll end up with a better bronze shade.
Skin hydration is another important point as healthy skin will have a better tanning color. At Plush Tan, we recommend you drink plenty of water before an upcoming tanning session. Also, make sure you are feeding your skin with a non-comedogenic moisturizer to avoid any pore blockage, disturbing the melanin production in the skin.
Clients on medication should first consult their healthcare provider to ensure their medicine intake is free of any ingredient that can cause insensitivity to their skin after exposure to UV rays.
Chemicals aren't your best friend when planning on visiting a tanning salon. As UV rays penetrate deep into the skin, perfumes, essential oils, and even deodorant can obstruct the rays from entering your body.
After Getting a Tanning Session
After a tanning session, keep up with the following steps to maintain a better bronze glow:
Do not take a shower for at least 5-8 hours. Let the bronzer oxidize and develop its true color for some time.
Shaving or exfoliating is highly dangerous after a tanning session as it can remove/disturb all the top-layered melanin cells generated during the tanning session.
Do not use any chemicals on your skin; after a shower, make sure you're using a fragrance-free lotion/moisturizer.
Though it requires multiple tanning sessions to maintain your bronze glow, you can further double the effect by protecting your skin against scented lotions, astringents, harsh chemicals, acidic cleaning solutions, and peroxides. When they come in contact with the skin, these chemicals can erode the melanin cells, causing the tan to fade quickly.
