While getting a golden tan is your primary goal, that goal shouldn’t come at the expense of your health.
Are tanning beds safe? Yes, for the most part tanning beds are very safe. However, you need to follow all the safety precautions. Wearing lotion to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays is always a good idea. Tanning lotions are available from tanning bed retailers, as well as drug stores. Wearing goggles in a tanning bed is a must in order to protect your eyes. Tanning without goggles is just asking for trouble as it can lead to many health problems and wrinkles down the line.
A good rule of thumb is to simply not overdo it and listen to your body. If your skin becomes irritated, cut back on the time you spend in the tanning bed. Remember, safety should be priority number one, even ahead of getting a good tan.
