Which is safer: tanning indoors or outdoors?

Indoor tanning is growing in popularity for many reasons. Unlike tanning under the sun, indoor tanning is in a controlled environment that allows the monitoring and control of ultraviolet (UV) rays emitted, giving you the power to manage the level of exposure and intensity of the tan. This significantly reduces the risk of skin damage and skin cancer by preventing overexposure to UV rays.

How does indoor tanning work?

When skin is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, a pigment called melanin is stimulated within the body. When melanin is triggered, it rises to the outermost layer of the skin, starting the skin’s tanning process. The more melanin cells in the skin, the greater the pigments excreted, resulting in a darker tan. In indoor tanning, tanning beds and booths are fitted with fluorescent lamps that are specially designed to emit UV rays somewhat similar to that from the sun.
