The Basics of Indoor Sun Tanning

TAN 2000 is the perfect tanning salon for the client who is new to tanning. Maybe you've been tanning outside all summer and are ready to give indoor sun tanning a try. Or, maybe you think a great tan looks beautiful but never thought you'd be able to get results because of your skin type. You may have even always wanted to have a rich, golden tan, but aren't sure you'd have the time or patience for indoor tanning.

Whatever your reason for putting off tanning, there's no better time than now to start. Indoor sun tanning is a peaceful, luxurious way to unwind and relax a few times every week. For many of our clients, their 15-minute sessions are the only chances they get for "me" time in their busy lives! TAN 2000 not only makes sure you are comfortable and relaxed, but also that you aren't wasting your time on equipment or methods that simply won't work.

Our company mission is to get you the results you want, in whatever time frame you have in mind. Our Certified Tanning Consultants are experts in skin typing and will help you match the sun tan lotions and equipment that will give you the best results.

Below you will find tons of information that will help you understand the indoor tanning process, along with some other advice you can follow to make your tanning experience more effective and more comfortable.

"Tanning Smart" at TAN 2000

Tanning is your body's natural defense against sunburns. It's what your body was designed to do! But going from a body of sun-deprived skin to a gorgeous, natural tan isn't always foolproof. That's why we educate our tanners in what we call "Tanning Smart."

What, you may ask, is the golden rule of tanning smart? Simple: Don't Ever Burn!

Determining how to use the sun tanning equipment without reddening your skin is what the Tan 2000 Certified Tanning Consultants specialize in. We use a process called skin typing to determine what category your skin falls under to determine the equipment and lotions that will work best for you. We aim to deliver the results you want while doing our best to help you avoid the unnecessary discomfort and damage to your skin that comes with sunburn.

The information on the following pages will let you know a little more about some of the other rules of "Tanning Smart." Check out our tips on what to do before, during, and after your tanning visits at TAN 2000 to make sure that your tan lasts.

Tips and Tricks: Before Sun Tanning

Before you go to TAN 2000 to relax in one of our state-of-the-art tanning beds, here are a few things you can do to enhance your tanning results:

  1. Prep Your Skin - Before going in to suntan, it is a good idea to prep your skin for the sunlight. Basically, this means being nice and clean! Moisturized skin will hold a better tan as well, so regular moisturizing at home will also increase the longevity of your tan.
  2. Avoid Wearing Make-Up - Make-up, deodorant, and perfumes can interfere with sun tanning lotions and UV rays, so try not to wear them before going to TAN 2000. Also, remember to remove watches or jewelry that could cause tan lines.
  3. If Taking Meds - Talk to Doctor Before Tanning - Some medications, like high blood pressure prescriptions, can be weakened or otherwise affected by UV exposure. Please consult your physician before tanning to determine if your medication is photosensitive. The MysticTanHD® tanning system is a great way to get a tan that is brilliant, beautiful, and free of UV exposure.

Tips and Tricks: During Sun Tanning

Once you walk into your private tanning room at TAN 2000, there are a few things to keep in mind to help you strengthen your tanning results:

  1. Decide If You're Going Nude - When you enter your private tanning room at TAN 2000, the first decision you'll be faced with is whether or not to remove all of your clothes. This decision is entirely up to you. To avoid tan lines, many of our clients decide to tan in the nude. If you go this route, remember that some areas of your body haven't seen the sun in a long time, if ever.  These areas will be more likely to redden if you're not careful. You may only want to reveal these sensitive areas directly to the lamps for part of your session, while laying a towel under or over them for the rest of the session. Even with the towel or clothing between the lamps and your skin, some UV exposure will occur, which will build up the tolerance for your next visit.
  2. Apply Your Lotion - Sun tanning accelerator lotions work best when they are applied right before your tanning sessions. After removing your clothes, applying lotion should be your next step. However, do not use regular sunscreen or outdoor sun tanning lotion! It can adversely affect your tan and can also damage our tanning equipment. Talk to a Certified Tanning Consultant to decide which indoor lotion will give you the biggest boost toward reaching your tanning goals.
  3. Wear Goggles - State and federal law require that you wear proper protective eyewear when tanning because your eyelids are too thin to block out UV rays entirely. We provide FDA approved goggles at each of our tanning salon locations, unlike other salons that make you purchase them.
  4. No Need to Flip! - Many tanners new to indoor sun tanning may think they need to flip over onto their stomachs during their sessions, as they would when tanning in the sun. However, our beds are designed to tan you evenly from all angles without requiring you to flip.

Some experienced tanners find it beneficial to move their arms from their sides to over their heads to expose that underarm area. If you are concerned about getting an even tan, we recommend the Fastest tanning bed, which is equipped with a high-pressure facial tanner, shoulder tanners, and full-body 160-watt reflector lamps that give you the most even tan possible.

Tips and Tricks: After Tanning

After you complete your sun tanning session at TAN 2000, here are a few things to keep in mind to help you protect your tanning results:

  1. Apply More Lotion ... Yes, Again! - Tan extenders can help keep you moisturized, which is the surest way to keep a tan lasting longer. Talk to a Certified Tanning Consultant to determine a moisturizing tan extender that can help keep your tan looking rich and golden for longer.
  2. If you feel you may have gotten sunburned - try to shower as soon as you can. Sometimes, a quick shower can slow the effects of sunburn. After showering, be sure to apply an aloe-based relief lotion. See a Certified Tanning Consultant for recommendations of the best reddening relief products available.

The Do's and Don'ts of Exfoliating

When it comes to getting a long-lasting suntan, exfoliation can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. Read the tips below to make sure you keep exfoliation on your tan's good side!

  1. Exfoliate, but Don't Over-Exfoliate - It may sound complicated, but we promise it isn't. Exfoliation is necessary for a good tan it gets dead skin cells away so that your skin is more accepting of a warm, golden color. But, over-exfoliating can cause you to scrub away layers of your tan and shorten its lifespan. Try to exfoliate once a week, preferably on the same day each week, just before a tanning session.
  2. Exfoliate Only on Your Skin's Rough Patches - Do you feel like your skin could benefit from exfoliation more than once a week? Try exfoliating only on the rough areas of your skin like your elbows, knees, and the heels of your feet whenever you feel the need for a refreshing scrub in the shower. These are the areas that need frequent exfoliation the most and scrubbing these areas should affect your tan the least.
  3. Use a Salt-Free Exfoliating Scrub - Salt is a natural enemy of your vibrant color and can shorten the lifespan of your tan.
  4. For MysticTanHD®, Exfoliate Right Before Your Session - But never right after! Exfoliating beforehand will shed your skin of its dead skin cells and make it more prone to accepting the spray color of the MysticTanHD® sunless tanning system. Exfoliating right after, however, may cause the solution to wear off faster than necessary.

Skin Care During the Tanning Process

We devote a lot of our effort to letting you know what skin care methods to use to extend and accelerate your suntan. But, what about the tanning and skin care techniques for the long haul? Here are a few basics of skin care that can keep you looking young and luxurious for longer.

  • Always Moisturize! - You may have read this a few other places on this site, but we can't stress it enough. Sun tanning's main detriment to your overall skin care is that the process reduces the natural moisture levels in your skin. This is why it is extremely important to replenish that moisture with sun tanning lotions both before and after tanning. Let a Certified Tanning Consultant help you find all the products you'll need to stay moisturized while you maintain a glowing tan.
  • Use a Facial Lotion - The skin on your face is the most sensitive skin on your body and the area most susceptible to the development of wrinkles. It is important to treat it as such! Be sure to wash make-up off before your tanning visit and use a facial lotion each and every day.

  • Sunless Tanning with MysticTanHD® - Thanks to the MysticTanHD®, it is also possible to get a gorgeous, natural-looking tan without the use of UV equipment! The MysticTanHD® system is one of the most sophisticated sunless tanning booths on the market. And now, MysticTanHD® has made it possible to get great sunless tanning results from home with its new line of home skin care products. Check them out!
