Tanning Beds VS Sun

Tanning Bed vs Sunbathing

Summer is in full swing, and your skin is probably enjoying some much-needed vitamin D. It’s normal to want a tanner complexion in the summer months. But before you lather up and plop down for some sun rays, you might be interested in learning that tanning in a controlled environment with advice from caring experts is safer for your skin and results in a better tan! 

What is a Tan, Afterall?

UV radiation is part of the spectrum of light that either reaches the earth from the sun or is produced by indoor tanning beds. There are a few types of UV rays, but the ones responsible for tanning are called UVA rays. UVA rays penetrate the lower levels of the epidermis (your skin) and trigger cells called melanocytes to produce melanin. Melanin is a biological substance in the skin that produces skin pigmentation. 

The more melanin your body produces – the darker the skin pigment and tan.

Natural Suntan

If you start your summer season by going outside without a base tan, you run the risk of getting a sunburn. A sunburn means the UV rays severely injured your skin. In addition to looking inconveniently red, sunburn can also accelerate aging and play a part in the development of certain skin cancers. 

Sunburn can also increase the likelihood of developing dark spots, rough patches, and dry and wrinkled skin. In other words, sunburn is a one-way ticket to aging your skin. 

The good news is that sunburn is preventable. It is, of course, a good idea to always wear an SPF of 30 and above when you are outside, but what can get you set up for success this summer is getting a tan in a controlled and professional environment at Sunlimited Tanning Salon & Day Spa
