Smart tanners are taking advantage of trained tanning facility personnel to learn exactly how their skin type reacts to UV rays from the sun and the best ways for them to avoid sunburn altogether. This intelligence allows smart tanners to minimize the risk of sunburn while maximizing the enjoyment and benefits of having a healthy tan.
By taking into account things like skin type, the intensity of the equipment being utilized and how long an individual has been tanning certified, professionals in tanning facilities can help you customize a scheduled program to maximize the benefits of sun exposure. This kind of control is virtually impossible outdoors. Seasonality, time of day, weather conditions, surrounding environment and altitude all make outdoor tanning a random act and sunburn prevention more difficult.
The main focus of the indoor tanning industry is to educate people on how to successfully avoid sunburn over the course of their life. Everybody spends time outdoors from time to time. The better educated people are about know how to use sunscreens appropriately and how to properly moisturize their skin, the less likely they are to allow serious damage to incur from the sun.
Tanning is your body’s natural defense against sunburn. Studies have shown that indoor tanners are much less likely to burn outdoors compared with non-tanners. Those who typically avoid the sun altogether are more likely to sunburn under outdoor exposure, even if they do try to use sunscreen.
Vitamin D has been proven as a critical component to our health and happiness. It’s presence in our bodies helps control anxiety and depression, helps reduce one’s risk to cancer and other abnormal cells, and is necessary for the body to properly process calcium, which helps prevent the effects of osteoporosis and bone deterioration.
The main source we have for our bodies to process Vitamin D is from the UVB rays of the sun, up to 90%. Studies show that people who live in sunnier climates are less susceptible to these ailments. It has also been proven that indoor tanning clients have higher levels of Vitamin D than non-tanners do.
