Skin Types

It is our duty to ensure that you tan responsibly and never over expose yourself to UV. To do this it is important that you know what your own specific skin ‘type’ is as this will determine whether or not your skin is suitable for tanning and for how long it can be exposed to UV before it starts burning. See the table below to help determine what your skin type is;

SKIN TYPE DESCRIPTION REACTION TO TANNING RECOMMENDED SESSION TIMES
1 Very fair skin, typically lots of freckles, red / sandy hair, blue / grey eyes High burn risk; skin turns red and peel; advised not to use a sunbed 0
2 Fair to light brown skin, possibly with freckles, blond / brown hair, blue / green / grey eyes Medium risk of burning; great care should be taken when tanning; capable of building up a moderate tan 6-9 minutes
3 Light brown skin, dark brown hair and eyes Burning is rare; tanning is rapid and deep 9-12 minutes
4 Deep brown skin, dark hair and eyes Burning is seldom; tanning is rapid and deep; this type of skin has its own natural protection 12-15 minutes
