Tips and Tricks for First-Time Tanners

Prepare Your Skin:
Before your tanning session, exfoliate and moisturize your skin to ensure a smooth base and even tan.

Start Slow:
Begin with shorter tanning sessions, gradually increasing the time to avoid overexposure and achieve a natural-looking tan.

Stay Hydrated:
Drink plenty of water before and after your session to keep your skin hydrated and prolong your tan.

Protect Your Eyes:
Wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from UV rays during your tanning session.


Session Duration and Equipment Rental

At Radiance Personified, our tanning sessions typically range from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on your skin type and desired results.

We offer state-of-the-art tanning beds equipped with advanced technology to ensure a safe and effective tanning experience. Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you in selecting the right equipment for your needs and provide thorough instructions on usage.


Achieving an Even Tan

To achieve an even tan, apply a high-quality tanning lotion evenly to your skin before your session. During your session, rotate your body periodically to ensure all areas receive equal exposure. After your session, moisturise your skin to lock in moisture and prolong your tan.

Following these steps will help you achieve a flawless, natural-looking tan that lasts.


Stand-Up vs Lay-Down Tanning Beds

Stand-up tanning beds offer a spacious and open environment, allowing for greater movement and airflow. They are ideal for individuals who prefer a quick and convenient tanning experience. On the other hand, lay-down tanning beds provide a more relaxed and comfortable experience, allowing you to lay back and relax while achieving your desired tan.

Your Tanning & Sunbed Questions Answered

Our tanning experts are used to answering your questions. So we asked them what first time clients want to know. Here’s what they told us;


Are tanning beds safe?

When used responsibly and with proper precautions, such as goggles and lotions, tanning beds can be safe.


How often should I tan?

It’s recommended to wait at least 48 hours between tanning sessions to allow your skin time to recover.


Can I wear makeup during tanning?

It’s best to remove makeup before tanning to ensure even exposure and avoid potential skin reactions.


Should I use tanning lotions?

Tanning lotions can enhance your tan and keep your skin moisturised, but choose products suitable for indoor tanning.


What’s the difference between stand-up and lay-down tanning beds?

Stand-up beds offer more freedom of movement, while lay-down beds provide a more relaxed experience.


How do I achieve an even tan?

Exfoliate and moisturise your skin before tanning, apply lotion evenly, and rotate your body during the session for consistent results.


What should I wear during tanning?

Most people tan nude or in their underwear for even coverage, but you can wear whatever makes you comfortable.


Can I tan without lotion?

While possible, using an indoor tanning lotion can enhance your tan, moisturise your skin, and help it tan more evenly. Our team will be happy to advise you on what to use ahead of your first session.


Do tanning beds cause wrinkles?

Overexposure to UV radiation, whether from the sun or tanning beds, can contribute to premature aging and wrinkles.


How can I protect my tattoos while tanning?

Apply high SPF sunscreen or cover tattoos with a towel or clothing to prevent fading and protect the ink.


Should I tan before or after waxing?

Wax before tanning to avoid skin irritation and ensure an even tan.


Can I Go on a Sunbed After Botox?

It’s generally advised to avoid sunbeds after receiving Botox treatments. Sunbeds emit UV radiation, which can potentially increase inflammation and irritation in the treated areas. If you’ve had your Botox treatment at Radiance Personified one of our team will be happy to advise you in more detail on when it’s best to use a sunbed.
