Making the most of your tanning session

by The Tanning Room Stroud

Home to the best tanning technology on the market, The Tanning Room Stroud is equipped with custom-made luxury sunbeds using innovative light technology to help customers tan quickly and safely, as well as offering collagen light therapy to help with skin repair. When practiced in moderation and in a safe environment with expertly trained staff on hand to guide, tanning can have a range of both health and beauty benefits. We’ve put together our top tips for making the most out of your tanning experience at The Tanning Room.

The Golden Glow

The most noticeable benefit to tanning is the colour! Whether you want to look your best for a special event, top up your tan before a holiday or simply maintain a golden glow year-round, The Tanning Room can offer both the classic UV sunbed, or an increasingly popular spray-tan provided by our professionally trained staff. A full cover spray tan can be achieved in as little as ten minutes, providing instant colour. For a more gradual build up, sunbeds can be used in short sessions once or twice a week.

To make the most of your tan, products like tanning creams are vital! Tanning creams are full of antioxidants, vitamins, natural oils, and moisturizers that are designed to improve your tanning experience. In addition to smelling great, they increase collagen synthesis, skin firmness, and moisturization, leaving your skin toned and youthful. They also combat inflammation and prevent protein and lipid oxidative damage, improving your overall skin appearance.

As you tan, the colour is held on the top layer of your skin cells. So, if your skin is dry, your tan will fade quicker! Tanning lotions work by moisturising your skin which neutralises your skins pH level and opens pores, allowing the UV light to penetrate your skin deeper - resulting in a tan that develops faster and darker, as well as being longer-lasting.

Health and Wellbeing

Did you know sunbeds are often prescribed by GPs alongside traditional medications? For conditions such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), controlled exposure to UV light encourages the release of endorphins and the production of vitamin D, both boosting and regulating your mood.

Vitamin D is also beneficial for your immune health. A higher level of vitamin D has been linked to lower levels of infection from common colds and flu, as well as a lower risk of more serious conditions such as type 1 diabetes and high blood pressure.

The Tanning Room also offers a state-of-the-art collagen red light therapy bed with a range of skincare benefits. With programs tailored to your skin type, red light exposure has been shown to improve a range of skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema and acne by stimulating the production of collagen. A 15-minute session on this bed can also relieve muscle tension and pains linked to rheumatism and arthritis, all whilst providing the same gradual tanning effect as a standard sunbed.
