The sun. It’s the fundamental ingredient for all life forms. Through its light, warmth and radiant energy, the sun provides the basis for all life on our planet. It stimulates the mind and the soul. It provides a sense of inner peace and well-being that both comforts and energizes. When the sun is shining, spirits are lifted and rejuvenated.

How Do We Tan?

The sun creates UV light, which is responsible for tanning and is divided into 2 categories: UVA or UVB.

UVA’s main role in the tanning process is oxidizing melanin, the browning pigment that tans the skin. UVB triggers melanin production in the skin. Both types of UV rays play a significant role and are needed for a balanced tanning process.


Golden Rules of Tanning

Your guide to achieving the perfect sunbed color.

As a key element of our Tan Wisely initiative, Palm Beach Tan follows the FDA's recommendation to allow 24 hours between sunbed sessions. The skin needs 24 hours to process and build color after a tanning session. Allowing 24 hours between sessions actually maximizes color development.

Tan Fact: Our state-of-the-art tanning equipment is designed to replicate the UVA and UVB produced by the sun, while allowing you to control your exposure.

TAN A SHADE SMARTER

Follow the recommended exposure schedule for your skin type. If you’re unsure or have questions regarding your skin type, consult with your certified Palm Beach Tan consultant, who will advise you on the proper procedures.
