    What is reality? and why are there tanning salons?
    Reality is...

  • Families take vacations to sun drenched beaches or go on cruises where direct sun or reflections off the water offer huge exposure to uv rays.
  • Grownups work outside and children play outside.
  • Genetics of people whose culture lives near the equator versus ones where their ancestry lives closer to polar regions are far different and so is their reaction to varying degrees of uv exposure.

    What lives without sunlight?
  • All humans and plant life need vitamin d to live. The primary source of vitamin d is sunlight.
  • Some dermatologists recommend dosages of light to treat certain skin disorders.
  • Sometimes depression is mitigated when light is introduced into a daily routine.
  • Some want a tanned appearance for a prom, wedding, re-union or other occasions. Some pregnant women want to look tanned as well.

    Tanning salons exist to meet people's personal needs from situations like those described above. The value, however, lies in the fact a professional salon can duplicate the sun's natural effects, but does so in a controlled environment. The true professional prescribes a plan to meet the customer's needs.

    This is done by:

  • Skin typing the customer.
  • Matching the correct tanning unit, tanning bulb and exposure time. By doing this the proper amounts of uva, uvb are administered.
  • Recommending lotions for indoor use.
  • Recommending lotions for outdoor use.

    The bottom line
    You can't avoid sunlight altogether. You can and should avoid being burned. A good professional salon can help.
