What Is This Passion for Tanning?

Tanned skin is very popular among gorgeous women. Everybody wants to have attractive bronzed looks. Whether you are on a date, a business trip or partying, a perfect tan can make you the center of attraction.

Having a tan is hot, and many teens and celebrities across the country seem to agree. Throughout the 20th century and indeed in the previous one, men and women hung out at the pool or the beach, soaking up rays to get a tan. However, with the advent of tanning beds you can enjoy the perfect tan right in the privacy of your home or saloon.

Tanning results from sunrays. The sun emits two types of radiations - UVA and UVB. UVB radiation burns the upper layers of skin (the epidermis) causing sunburns. UVA radiation penetrates the lower layers (the dermis) and causes tanning. However, a sunbath exposes our body to unlimited and uncontrolled dose of ultraviolet radiations. Studies have proved that an overdose of these radiations can cause skin cancer.

Sunbathing is a natural process of tanning, but it takes a lot of time. The young generation is not fortunate enough to have enough free time for sunbathing as earlier generations had. Many of them may not have spare time during the day at all.

Tanning beds and tanning lotions have emerged to help them. The tanning beds create a similar environment as under the sun. Unlike sunrays, however, a tanning bed controls the amount and nature of rays. This ensures that the harmful effects of radiation are controlled. This is a great advantage of tanning beds and you can enjoy the perfect tan without exposing your skin to harmful radiation.

Tanning beds control the amount and time of ultraviolet radiation. A tanning bed programs the emission and intensity of ultraviolet rays according to the recipient's body. The tanning beds stop the radiations after the stipulated time. In fact, a tanning bed is like a controlled dose of ultraviolet rays.

Tanning machines and tanning beds require a few precautions because of the presence of ultraviolet light. Some of the precautions required for tanning beds are:

* You should always wear protective eye goggles while using the tanning beds. Tanning saloons have the goggles available for their clients. Never use a tanning bed without the goggles because ultraviolet rays are more harmful to the retina than to your skin.

* Tanning Bed Exposure Timings: It is important to observe the tanning bed timings. Over exposure at the tanning beds could be harmful. Exposure times also vary with the brand of bed. Make sure you are following the manufacturer's guidelines. You can check other regulations with local Department of Health & Human Services.

Using a tanning bed is quite a simple activity. Just a few sessions and you will find everyone asking about where you have been to!
