Residential Tanning Beds - Things to Know Before You Buy

By Tanya Turner

Are you one of the people who can't live without a glowing tan? Do you go to the cost for a vocation and visit a tanning salon every week? Then it is time to think about a residential tanning bed. Tanning in the comfort of your home has many advantages, but there are some downsides as well.

Benefits of residential tanning beds

There are many benefits in having a residential tanning bed instead of going to the salon. First, you will save considerable time, since you don't have to drive anywhere to get your tanning session. Second, being the only person who uses the tanning bed you can be absolutely sure that it is clean. And third, if you are in a habit of going to the salon once a week a tanning bed at home would save you money. With proper maintenance it will last for many years, and surely will cost less than you would spend in the tanning salon over these years.

Health benefits and dangers of indoor tanning

Of course the main benefit is golden skin glowing with health. Having tanned skin is associated with health, wealth and happiness. There are other advantages as well. Tanning helps your skin to increase Vitamin D production, which is essential for your health. Tan decreased symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. It also increases the level of endorphins, the hormone of happiness, so a good tanning session can chase away bad moods. And if you suffer from muscular pains, exposure to UV light gives you a relief.

Risks of tanning to your health are well known. Sun burns, premature aging and sagging of your skin and in extreme cases skin cancer. What is important to know that you can avoid health risks of tanning, by taking several preventive measures?

First you should always protect your eyes while tanning. Use quality sunglasses specially designed for tanning beds. Using tanning lotion during every session is also important.

Also mention to your physician that you are tanning regularly. This way if there is any damage to your skin, your doctor will notice it and you can adjust the length of your tanning sessions.

How home tan beds are different from salon tanning beds

Residential tanning beds are not as powerful a commercial salon beds, they usually have fewer lamps. But otherwise they operate on exactly the same principles. You get tan from exposure to UV rays of two types UVB and UVA. UVB rays are considered to be damaging to your health, but you need both types to get a good tan. Just UBA rays will not produce the desired result.

If you want to gets deep tan in just a short session aim to buy a more powerful home tanning bed. These are usually more expensive, but it will save you time. The more powerful the bed is, the more it costs. Also keep in mind that for your tanning bed to function properly you will have to replace the bulbs often. With time tanning bed bulbs become less powerful and sometimes it takes twice as long to get the right tan as under a new bulb.
