tan smart

Be SUN-WISE. The Sun is the fundamental ingredient for many life forms through its light, warmth and radiant energy. The Sun stimulates the mind and the body, it provides a sense of inner peace and well-being that both energizes and comforts us. Regular exposure to sunlight can strengthen bones, regulate blood-pressure and keep skin, hair and nails healthy while helping to reduce stress and tension. Follow the recommended schedule or your Skin Type. If you are unsure of your Skin Type, ask a "Cove Girl" to help you.

HOW DO WE TAN? The Sun creates UV Light which is responsible for tanning. UVA and UVB are the two categories for Tanning indoors. UVA's main role in the Tanning process is oxidizing melanin which is the browning pigment of the skin. UVB triggers melanin production by penetrating deeper into the layer of the skin for a longer lasting tan. Both UVA and UVB are needed during the Tanning process to produce a bronzed tan. Over exposure to Sun-light indoors or outdoors can cause serious damage to the skin we encourage you to take precautions when tanning and do it in moderation while using proper skin care.

bronzing rules of tanning

APPLY SKIN CARE PRODUCTS:: Use lotion before and after tanning to keep you bronzed color looking better for longer. Only use an indoor tanning lotion while tanning in any tanning unit for the best results and to keep our beds working at their best. Tanning Cove offers an array of high end skin care and tanning products at an affordable price. Our staff personally tries and uses every lotion we carry so we know what works.
SLOW DOWN :: Never try to hurry a tan and please use common sense and never tan more than once in a 24 hour period- it can take up to 24 hours to notice a tan or a burn- After you build your base you may only need to come a few times a week to help maintain your desired color.
WEAR EYE PROTECTION :: Always wear approved eye wear while tanning in any tanning unit at Tanning Cove. Covering your eyes with a towel or just shutting them does not protect them.
