Home Tanning Beds
More and more people are opting to buy their own tanning beds rather than frequent a tanning salon. The main reason for this is that over a period of months or years, frequenting a salon can cost you thousands of dollars.
That’s money you could have spent on your own machine. And then there’s the matter of time spent traveling to and from the salon. If you tan often, why not invest in a home tanning bed?
Indoor Tanning Beds
Whether minors should be prohibited from using indoor tanning beds is a question of politics, but the point on safety is well taken by the majority of the tanning bed industry, as the warnings on their websites can attest. Indoor tanning beds must be used in moderation. A good rule of thumb is this: If you think your tan looks good, take a break from your tanning schedule.
Residential Tanning Beds
Almost as common for home use is the vertical tanning bed, also known as a tanning booth or stand-up. The interior walls are lined with UV lamps to tan you on all sides simultaneously. Just step inside and close the door. A tanning booth tans with twice the speed of a clamshell tanning bed.
Portable tanning beds are also popular in the residential sector. A portable tanning bed consists of a “canopy” of UV lamps on a wheeled support structure. Position the hydraulically mounted canopy over your favorite deck chair or beach towel and you’re golden. The best part: tanning canopies cost half as much as clamshell tanning beds. The down side: canopies don’t deliver as high a quality tan as stand-ups or clamshells.
