During the long winter months, when reduced exposure to natural sunlight might be causing you to feel lethargic and depressed, maintaining a good base tan can serve as an excellent reminder that the warmer weather isn’t all that far away. Here at Tropical Tan, our Smart Tan certified staff is ready and willing to help you manage this important aspect of your skincare regimen.
Smart Tan certification is just one of the many features that gives our skilled and caring staff the edge up on the competition. We understand the difference between a proper tan and a sunburn, and are able to fine-tune the tanning experience based on the customer’s skin type. If you have a fairer skin tone (what’s known in the industry as a type 2), the customized settings on our Smart Tan beds allow you to acclimate gradually to the equipment, thereby reducing the risk of burns.
We take sunburn prevention seriously for many reasons. First and foremost, we believe in helping our customers maintain positive skin habits—both in and out of the salon. When people neglect to educate themselves on smart tanning procedure and burn themselves as a result, it reflects poorly on the tanning industry as a whole. This is unfortunate, especially when you consider the fact that we’re actually committed to promoting good skincare habits.
In fact, proper tanning actually boosts the skin’s ability to repair damaged cells. Even fair-skinned type 2s can benefit from maintaining a base tan, as long as they follow the proper procedure and give themselves time to adjust. A real tan isn’t something that can be achieved overnight, or even in the first few sessions. At Tropical Tan, our Smart Tan certified staff is here to make sure you end up with the results you crave, without rushing the process.
In addition, we’re happy to advise you on your skincare routine as a whole, including the topic of sunscreen use. While it can be tempting to assume that your base tan allows you to frolic in the sun without fear of getting burned, this type of thinking can ruin the results you’ve worked so hard to achieve. It’s also important to use proper sun care when outside the controlled environment of our Smart Tan beds. This will ensure that you maintain the sort of base tan that works to protect your skin from further damage.
If you have any further questions or concerns about your tanning and skincare needs, feel free to stop by and share them with us! That’s what we’re here for, and we would be honored to help you achieve that sought-after golden glow in time for spring.
God bless and make it a great day!
