Girl Lying on the BeachIs Tanning Safe?

We all want that Jennifer Lopez “glow” and fortunately we can have it without enduring the harsh heat of the sun. You can go to a tanning salon and within minutes you are the bronzed goddess that you’ve always wanted, suddenly you become the object of envy. Did you know that more than one million Americans go to tanning salons every single day? Yup that’s right, everyday! Seventy percent of indoor tanners are female (16 to 29 years old) and they are the group who is particularly at risk for developing skin cancer. I’m sure you’re going to ask- “how safe is tanning?” What are the risks involved? How much is too much?

Natural View of BeachLet’s talk tanning beds first. If you go to a reputable salon, they will provide you with information on the equipment safety, the healthiest way to tan and how to care for your skin after the procedure. You have to wear protective goggles to shield your eyes. In addition to that, limit your exposure to the sun to recommended amounts as sun burn may not develop for hours.

If the bulbs are newly replaced, they may cause you to tan faster. Ask the tanning bed operator or the salon staff about the age of the bulb. This is just my opinion but to be safe (generally), once you develop a tan, limit exposures to once a week. Don’t obsess about it! You can still maintain your tan without engaging yourself in unwarranted exposure. There are available products in the market that can help extend your tan.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. The tanning salon staff should know how long your session should be. For example, if you are a natural red head and you have a very fair skin that does not tan but rather burn, then you don’t need to be in the tanning bed for a long period of time. If this is the case, you can use a strong tanning lotion instead. It’s also important to avoid getting sunburn.

Just like anything and everything else, tanning should be done in moderation. Of course there would be dangers if you do it too much so again, don’t get too obsessed about it! As long as you follow safety tanning rules then you can pretty much assure yourself that you can avoid the risks associated with tanning and still enjoy that lovely golden glow. And Oh I almost forgot, whatever you do please don’t look orange!

About Modern Sunless Tanning Salons

Editor's note:  Here is a good article that describes how tanning salons have evolved and what they have to offer for consumers today:

Sunless Tanning Salons Today

When the weather starts to warm up and the days get longer, we are all drawn outdoors to enjoy the sun. Many will recall seemingly endless hours outdoors, soaking up the sun's rays without a care. Unfortunately, sunbathing isn't as carefree an activity as it used to be. These days, there's more to worry about, such as premature aging, scarring and blemishes, or even skin cancer.

The sunless tanning salon is becoming more and more diversified. High-end salons and spas are starting to supplement their UV tanning services with sunless. Sessions can cost anywhere from $25 per session to up to $100 for a few one-hour sessions.

When a person visits a sunless tanning salon, they have the option of using a spray booth or having a technician apply the tanner with an airbrush system. There are also the options of UV tanning via tanning beds and even application of tanning lotions by salon staff. The latter can cost up to $125 per session, and whether or not this service is available will depend on the salon.

Many salons sell tanning lotions, mousses, bronzers, and other products in addition to their in-house services.

The tanning spray used in a sunless tanning salon contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA reacts with dead skin cells on the surface of the body, causing them to turn brown. As dead skin peels off, the tan fades, just like with a natural suntan. Some sunless tanning salons add cosmetic bronzers to their formulas, which cause the effects of the tan to show up sooner, sometimes immediately. DHA without a bronzer added does not begin to show results for two to four hours after a session.

A good sunless tanning salon will have knowledgeable, open staff that will explain procedures, precautions, and aftercare to clients. Follow-up care or maintenance is usually available in the form of repeat visits, touch ups, or advice on how to prolong the tan with products such as lotions.

Sunless Tanning Info provides detailed information about sunless tanning lotion, booths, sprays, salons, and pills, as well as reviews of best sunless tanning products and methods. Sunless Tanning Info is the sister site of Tanning Beds Web.

Air Brush Tanning – Is it Right for You?

Air Brush Tanning

I don’t know anybody who isn’t dying to have that “sunkissed glow” and America is not the only country who’s obsessed about tanning. Most of us are concerned about safety issues though. More than anything, we are concerned about the possible health hazards and harmful side effects of tanning beds. It’s always safe to be sensible and remember that anything in excess is not good. If you are not too keen on tanning beds, why not try airbrush tanning instead?

Airbrush tanning is done by applying the tanning solution using a compressor and airbrush. A typical session is done from 20 to 30 minutes. So how do these solutions make your skin tan? The active ingredient DHA builds a reaction with the outer layer of skin to produce a bronzing effect; this is somewhat comparable to what a traditional tan does.

DHA has long been used in cosmetic preparations and was listed with the FDA in 1973. Yes it is safe and suitable to color the skin. DHA comes from glycerin which is a commonly used cosmetic and food ingredient. Since DHA is not absorbed into the body, it eliminates the risk of toxicity.

One great thing I LOVE about airbrush tanning is that the pigments do not cause substantial damage to the skin if there is any. It must be emphasized though that these tanning solutions do not provide protection against UV rays.

The color of the skin will continue to darken after the initial application. This is for most of the tanning solutions used in the market today. The maximum or darkest color is reached within 12 hours. This should be specified on the solution directions. There are solutions available that contains a bronzer that provides an instant tan effect. This efficiently helps the technician to determine the areas of the skin that have solution applied already.

On an average, airbrush tanning can last from 4 to 10 days and this will depend on the aftercare attention you will provide and of course your skin type. You don’t need to get the procedure done more than once per week. You can use some tanning extenders to make your tan last a little bit longer. This will also help you keep the tan looking healthy and glowing. Think Jennifer Aniston’s envy-worthy skin!

Get The Truth About Vitamin D

The main purpose of Vitamin D in our body is to help with the absorption of calcium. It also aids in keeping the right amount of phosphorous in the blood. What happens if we don’t have ample supply of this vitamin in our body? It can result to osteoporosis in adults or rickets in children.

Too much Vitamin D is not healthy either, it can make the intestines absorb too much (unnecessary) calcium and this can obviously cause high levels of calcium in the blood. So this is not good? NO because if we have calcium deposits in soft tissues such as the heart and lungs, this can affect their ability to function. Kidney stones and muscle weakness are also known to occur if you have too much Vitamin D in your system.

Vitamin D, also known as the “Sunshine Vitamin”, is manufactured by our body after being exposed to sunshine. A 10 or 15-minute sun exposure 3 times weekly is already enough to produce the body’s requirement of this Vitamin. NO you do not have to fry yourself on the beach to get sufficient supply of Vitamin D.

There are some people though that still do not acquire sufficient amount of Vitamin D even if they live in an area where it’s always sunny; so they need more from their diet or supplementation. In general, older people require higher levels of Vitamin D.

What if you hate exposing yourself to the sun, what other alternatives are you left with? Some people rely on tanning beds for their Vitamin D dose. This is especially true during the cold winter months when daylight hours are few. But the main question is, can tanning beds provide the same health benefits as sunshine? Can tanning beds be considered as a safe source of sunshine?

First, you have to realize the characteristics of ultraviolet light rays and how they affect the body. The sun and tanning beds both release two types of ultraviolet light rays- UVA and UVB. Our skin absorbs both types BUT in different ways. Since UVA rays have longer wavelengths, they can penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin. UVB rays on the other hand have shorter wavelengths which means they can only reach the surface layers of the skin. Keep in mind that both types of rays can contribute to the health risks related with excessive exposure to the sun such as skin cancers. Now we can say that the safety of exposure to UVA or UVB depends mostly upon its moderation.
