Know your skin type
Tanning is not a one-size-fits all. Getting a beautiful UV tan means something different for everyone.  That’s because the amount of UV exposure needed to acquire a tan is different for a fair-skinned red-head than it would be for a central European with an olive complexion.
That’s why tanning professionals are trained to get you the appropriate amount of UV exposure while minimizing your risk of sunburn. Your smart tanning regimen begins with determining your particular skin type.
The fairest skin type – known as Skin Type I – cannot suntan and should not use UV tanning equipment. (See spray-on tanning) But darker skin types can develop suntans. For those who can develop suntans, our system gradually acclimates you to UV exposure based on your skin type.
