UV Tanning Myths Debunked

A UV Tan, also known as sunbed tanning, is a convenient way to get beautiful, bronzed skin. It offers people the same benefits as outdoor tanning, but in a more controlled environment. With responsible UV Tanning, you will be able to make the most out of your tanning session, all while minimizing the risks of too much or too little UV Light exposure. Though a UV Tan offers numerous benefits, there are still a lot of myths surrounding this convenient tanning technique – so, we’re going to debunk these myths in order to fully understand the truth about UV Tanning.

Myth 1: If I close my eyes, I don’t need eye protection.

It is a common misconception that closing your eyes is enough to protect you from UV rays. However, even if you keep your eyelids closed, UV rays can still harm your eyes. It is essential to wear the right eye protection, such as goggles or glasses, throughout your UV Tanning session to ensure the safety of your eyes.

Myth 2: Tanning Lotions don’t work. They’re a waste of money.

A lot of people think professional tanning lotions are a waste of money and ineffective. However, these tanning lotions have a number of advantages especially when you get a UV Tan. Professional indoor tanning lotions keep your skin moisturized, which leads to enhanced tanning efficiency during your session. Plus, they also accelerate the tanning process, allowing you to achieve a faster and darker tan, ultimately saving you both time and money. At Plush Tan, we offer you a large selection of high-quality professional tanning lotions that can improve your UV Tanning experience and lead to healthier skin.

Myth 3: I’ll burn if I use an accelerator.

A lot of people think that using accelerators while getting a UV Tan will cause burns. They do not make you burn. However, accelerators do increase your skin’s melanin production if used properly, which leads to a darker and longer-lasting tan. To prevent overexposure, it is very important to thoroughly review the instructions and use accelerators in moderation. At Plush Tan, our tanning experts will offer guidance on the best choice and proper application techniques to get optimal results for your tan.

Myth 4: SPF is necessary to use on a sunbed.

Using SPF on your UV Tan session is not necessary as the treatment is controlled and timed. However, we recommend clients who have sensitive skin or those seeking additional protection to consider using SPF, especially on their face, neck, and chest. While it’s not mandatory, SPF provides stronger skin protection during their tanning session.

Myth 5: Getting a UV Tan is the same as Sun Tanning.

No. A lot of people believe that UV Tanning and bathing in natural sunlight are the same. However, this is NOT true. Indoor Tanning gives off concentrated UV radiation, which is significantly stronger than natural sunlight. However, as compared to sun tanning, a UV Tan is done in a controlled environment. It is very important to understand that though UV Tanning offers countless benefits, there are also some risks associated with it. At Plush Tan, we’ll provide you with top-quality UV Tan and help you practice safe tanning habits.
