Why is it good to use a sunbed?

At Clipperz, we believe strongly in the incredible benefits that regular tanning can offer. This includes the following:

It prepares your skin for holiday

Having a base tan in place before you go on holiday is great for 2 reasons. First, it will help you to build a much stronger, more vibrant tan when abroad; even if you only have a few days to relax in the sun. Secondly, it can help prepare your skin and prevent it from becoming sunburnt. This is especially important if you rarely spend time in the sun and are sensitive to strong rays.

It helps boost your Vitamin D levels

Amongst other things, Vitamin D plays a key role in helping your body to stay healthy and to have strong bones. Well, regular sunbed sessions are a great way to top up your Vitamin D levels and keep them steady over time.

It can reduce the effects of SAD

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a condition that causes otherwise mentally healthy and happy people to experience extreme sadness at certain times of the year. In the UK, SAD typically kicks in during the winter months when the days are shorter and the weather is more miserable. Regular trips to the tanning salon can help keep depression at bay and maintain a happy, healthy mind.

It helps you to look (and feel) great!

It almost goes without saying but, one of the main reasons you should use a tanning bed is to help you look and feel great, even if you don’t suffer from SAD. Having a strong, healthy tan all year round can do wonders for your self-confidence and body image, without the need to pay for expensive holidays to Spain every few months!

Get the most from your tanning session with these 5 top tips

When visiting our salon, we recommend that guests follow a few key steps to get the most from their tanning experience.

1. Use an exfoliant

Ideally, you’ll want to give yourself a deep exfoliation a day or two before your tanning session. This helps remove any dead skin cells and properly prepares your skin for the best tan possible. Alternatively, if you are limited for time, then you can use a loofah to help exfoliate your skin when showering.

2. Afterwards, apply a tanning cream

There are an array of tanning creams and extenders available which help you to get the most from your tan. Don’t worry if you are unsure which products work best; here at Clipperz, we offer a range of creams and would be happy to help you find one best suited to your skin’s needs.

3. Keep your skin hydrated

To help maintain and encourage a healthy tan, it is important that your skin remains properly hydrated. To achieve this, you should drink plenty of water every day, both before and after your tan. Applying moisturiser to your skin also achieves this goal.

4. Remove any cosmetics

It is important that you remove any cosmetics and make-up prior to visiting a tanning salon. Leaving them on blocks the pores in your skin which in turn blocks UV rays. This can lead to an uneven and ineffective tan. So give your whole body a good scrub on the morning before your appointment.

5. Avoid waxing and shaving after your session

Waxing and shaving your skin after visiting a tanning bed is not a good idea. This is because it effectively exfoliates the skin and means you lose the outermost layer of tan you have just earned. Instead, ensure you are properly shaved or waxed a few days before visiting the salon, afterwards, you are good to go!
