Dos and Donts While Undergoing An Indoor Tan

Although a good, nice tan is what all of us desire, yet we need to be extra careful while tanning ourselves. Because, as it is common knowledge, too much of the sun's rays can be harmful. Even if we are using artificial tanning devices at home, overdoing them can be too dangerous.

Here is the list of things you should keep in mind while undergoing indoor tanning:

1)Set specific exposure time. There might be exposure limits for your skin type. So set the timer accordingly. Also remember that age at the time of exposure is relative to burning. Children and adolescents are harmed more by the UVB rays than the adults. So be quite careful about your sun exposure limits.

2)If using the services of a tanning salon, do inquire whether they provide safety goggles or not. Also make sure that the goggles fit snugly and that the salon sterilizes the goggles after each use so as to prevent spread of eye infections.

3)Also make sure that if you have some specific medical conditions then you inform the tanning salon about it. If you are undergoing treatment for lupus or diabetes, then remember that these conditions can be aggravated by exposure to UV rays. Also the skin's sensitivity may increase if you are using certain medications like antihistamines, tranquilizers or birth control pills.

I hope you will keep all these things in mind when visiting a tanning salon the next time.
