The Science bit
The tubes used in our sun beds have between 4-6 times less UVB than other tubes on the market which means the sun beds are very safe and comply with European legislation 0.3 UV emission. At the same time, they have a very high level of UVA which generates a very fast and natural coloured tan. The combination of the size and quality of the beds, with the latest tube technology provides outstanding results, superb comfort and safety without compromise.
To make sure you’re tanning safely, it is important that you follow the advice below:
- Do not use a sunbed if you are under 18
- You must wear goggles every time you use a sunbed
- Understand your skin type and make sure you stick to the recommended time
- Start slowly and build up your tan gradually to avoid burning
- Never use a sunbed on the same day as sunbathing outdoors
Knowing your Skin Type
The skin types, recommended usage and session times below are only to be used as a guide and not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

We all want a beautiful dark tan that lasts longer so here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your tanning session:
Building up your tan gradually will give you a darker tan that lasts longer
- Use tanning lotions
These contain ingredients like hemp to speed up the tanning process while intensively moisturising your skin.
- Exfoliate regularly
Exfoliating before tanning will remove dead skin cells, making your tan more even and longer lasting.
Exercising before tanning increases blood flow to the skin, stimulating the production of melanin (the pigment that makes you brown) and speeding up the tanning process.
Hydrated skin exfoliates slower so to make your tan last longer drink plenty of water and moisturise regularly.
Do tanning accelerators / intensifiers really work?
Quite simply, Yes! These lotions help you tan faster, moisturise and many help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By supplying your skin with much needed vitamins, minerals, amino acids and moisture, these lotions can help you tan up to 60% better than using no lotion at all.
Mother nature has a way of taking care of us in many aspects of our life and tanning is just another of mother nature’s wonders. When we are born, our skin has a reflective quality to reduce the amount of UV penetration and this reflects more than half the normal sunlight.
Although we recognise it as a “look good” advantage, a tan is our body’s natural protection from the sun. Tanning lotions break this barrier down so you get nearly 100% of the sunlight going deep into the skin for a longer lasting, better looking tan. Lotion also speeds up the production of the Melanin.
Melanin is the chemical compound that holds the tan. It travels from deep in the skin to the surface faster and that’s what turns into a nice golden brown suntan. When tanning indoor or out, moisture is lost from the skin. Use a good daily moisturiser after tanning, showers or exercise to keep a healthy glowing skin tone.
Choose a good quality lotion when tanning. Don’t scrimp on moisturiser, get the best quality product that you can afford. Exposure to UVA can cause skin to dry up. A high quality tanning lotion can help prevent and reduce these effects as well as extending the colour of your tan.
