Are bronzing beds better than regular?
Benefits. Because of the low level of UVB rays used in them, the bulbs used in bronzer beds do not turn the skin as red as a regular tanning bed would. As a result, sunburn risk is reduced and a darker, longer-lasting tan is achieved.
What level tanning bed gets you the darkest?
Both Level 1 and Level 2 grant tanners the experience of relaxing in a comfortable and warm tanning bed. Level 3 offers medium pressure lamps with lower UV rays and more UVA rays, providing a faster and deeper tan than Level 1 and Level 2.
How often should I use a bronzing bed?
Maintain your perfect shade by tanning 1-3 times a week.
Is a bronzing bed bad for you?
Science tells us that there’s no such thing as a safe tanning bed, tanning booth, or sun lamp. Just one indoor tanning session can increase the risk of developing skin cancer (melanoma by 20%, squamous cell carcinoma by 67%, and basal cell carcinoma by 29%).
Can you get burned in a bronzing bed?
UV-A radiation in tanning beds can be 10 to 15 times more powerful than the sun at midday, according to a congressional report. What’s more, many tanning beds boast the fact that they do not feature UV-B rays, which cause sunburn.
How long does it take to get tan in a bronzing bed?
Using tanning lotions or creams before you enter a tanning bed can help you achieve a base tan in 4 to 6 minutes.
Do you have to flip over in a tanning bed?
This is usually indicated by a timer or a staff member telling you to flip over. Since this position can feel uncomfortable, you can bend your arms to prop up your chin. If you are getting your tan in a vertical booth, you do not have to worry about rotating your body to receive an even tan.
Which tanning bed is better lay down or stand up?
Since the UV rays in stand-up booths are stronger, you can get a quicker tan. 10 to 15 minutes in a stand-up booth can give you a deep tan. Lay-down tanning beds, on the other hand, require almost double the time. It takes around 20 minutes in a tanning bed to achieve the same results.
Why am I not getting darker in the tanning bed?
You may have reached a tanning plateau. Everyone has a limit to how dark they can get, but to try to get past your current color we recommend switching the types of beds you use every few tanning sessions. Changing your lotion is also recommended – try a bronzer or switch to an accelerator.
How can I get tan fast?
How to get a tan faster
- Use sunscreen with an SPF of 30.
- Change positions frequently.
- Eat foods that contain beta carotene.
- Try using oils with naturally occurring SPF.
- Don’t stay outside for longer than your skin can create melanin.
- Eat lycopene-rich foods.

How many minutes in a tanning bed is equal to the sun?
20 minutes in a tanning bed is equivalent to 20 minutes in the sun… no big deal! 20 minutes of exposure in a tanning bed may equal up to two hours spent on the beach under the hot mid-day sun without protection. Artificial tanning bombards the skin with UVA which are three to six times more intense than sunlight.
How much worse is a tanning bed than the sun?
Both indoor and outdoor tanning causes damage to our skin. Tanning beds emit roughly 12 times more UVA light than natural sunlight.
Is there a safe way to tan in a tanning bed?
The only safe way to tan is to use a self-tanning product or get a spray tan. Most self-tanning products and sprays are safe and FDA approved. These cosmetics do not penetrate the skin to cause harm like UV rays, and instead, just coat the outer layer.
Why are tanning beds bad?
