About tanning


Sunlight is the most effective way for the body to manufacture Vitamin D. Yet in the UK and Ireland, our bodies can only manufacture Vitamin D from exposure to the sun during the months of May to October. Outside of these months, the sun is simply not strong enough. Vitamin D is essential for good health.

Medical studies around the world have proven the benefits of Vitamin D in association with:

  • Cellular Health: including breast, colon and prostate cancers 
  • Bone Health: including osteoporosis, hip fractures, osteomalacia and hip fractures
  • Organ Health: including high blood pressure, hypertension and heart disease
  • Mental Health: including SAD, PMS, depression and general mood
  • Auto-immune Diseases: including multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Skin Disorders: including psoriasis
  • Obesity and exercise programmes



  • To achieve the best results from a sunbed always remove make-up and cosmetic
  • Find out your skin type as this is the basis for your exposure time
  • If you are taking medication always consult your Doctor before us
  • Always wear eye protection i.e.: UV goggle
  • Aim to have a sun bed session at least twice a week while you are building your tan and then one session per week should maintain your tan
  • Use our professional tanning creams during your sun bed sessions- they really do work. Not only do they help you tan more quickly but they contain moisturisers formulated for use with UV light. Our staff are happy help you find the best cream for you.
  • Drink plenty of water. Your skin quickly becomes dry if you are dehydrated and dry skin is more difficult to tan. The majority of us don't drink enough water.
  • Moisturise your skin twice per day. It is important to keep your skin moisturised because this helps your skin tan much quicker and more deeply. Remember not to moisturise on the day of your tanning session just in case the ingredients react with the UV light, however it is fine to apply moisturiser afterwards.
