How does the skin tan
When our skin is exposed to UV light cells deep within our skin initiate the process where more melanin is produced. Melanin is our natural skin pigment.
Most people are able to have a sunbed but there are a few exceptions below
- If you are under 18
- If you have a medical condition that worsens in sunlight
- If you have a long history of sunburn
- If you have skin cancer
Please ask us if you are unsure if you can safely use a sunbed.
We will ALWAYS ask for proof of age and confirmation of identity before you can use the sunbed, this is for your protection.
Benefits of vitamin D
Vitamin D is essential for good health and many health benefits have been highlighted in medical studies
- Bone health including Osteoporosis
- Mental health including depression, SAD, and general mood
- Skin disorders including Psoriasis
Sunlight (UV) light is the most efficient way for our bodies to produce vitamin D but during the months of October to May in the UK there is not sufficient sunlight of high enough strength to produce all the vitamin D we require. Vitamin D supplements need to be very high to be as effective as sunlight and with this there is a risk of vitamin D toxicity.
Sunbeds can provide much needed UV light during these months. Regular users comment on the “feel good effect” that sunbeds produce.
At Purity we encourage sensible use of sunbeds
Spray tanning is a form of sunless tanning. A fine mist is sprayed on to your body and this interacts with your skin to produce a tan. The effects last between 3 to 7 days and the process is safe.
How to prepare for your spray tan
If you need to wax or shave, do so before your appointment, preferably 24 hours in advance.
Exfoliate your skin the day before your appointment for best results.
Remove all makeup, moisturisers and deodorant before the spray tan
When you come for your spray tan we will discuss your requirements and the effect you wish to achieve.
