Tanning Chain Offers Tips for Effective Indoor and Outdoor Exposure
Date:6/29/2009

FENTON, Mo., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- As appealing as a day bronzing on the beach may be, it's important to understand the short and long term effects UV rays can have on your skin.

"There's been much debate over the 'right' amount of UV exposure but despite statistics, many people still want that summer glow," said Todd Beckman, founder and CEO of The Tan Company, one of the fastest growing tanning chains in the U.S. "Research shows that vitamin D plays a huge role in overall health and those with low vitamin D levels have double the risk of dying from heart disease and other causes over an eight-year period. However, this is a clear case of where you can get too much of a good thing. It's imperative to take precautions any time you tan, especially when skin hasn't been exposed to UV rays in some time like this long winter. Protecting your skin during indoor and outdoor exposure should be your number one priority no matter your age."

Here are some tips from Beckman and his network of certified skincare consultants on tanning the right way this Independence Day weekend:

  • Slather on sunscreen. Apply a lotion with at least SPF 15 a minimum of 30 minutes before exposure and reapply after swimming or towel-drying - even if the product is waterproof.
  • Protect eyes and lips. Closing your eyes while tanning isn't enough; opt for FDA-compliant eyewear instead. The same goes for lips: They produce less melanin so slick on balm with SPF every time you tan.
  • Build a base. To ensure an even tan, begin by exfoliating skin and consider a few initial indoor tanning sessions: The gradual exposure can prevent a painful sunburn.
  • Note medications and family histories. Certain medications can increase the likelihood of a burn. Discuss their possible effects as well as any abnormal moles or family history of skin cancer with your physician before UV exposure.
