Tanning Packages

When the sun is shining, getting a tan directly from the source seems like a great way to get the most out of the sunshine. However, there are numerous uncontrollable factors to consider when tanning outdoors that can increase your risk of overexposure. 10-20 minutes of unprotected exposure depending on your skin type will allow for vitamin D production to take place. Then do apply sunscreen when heading outdoors. While sunscreen does inhibit vitamin D production, overexposure to the sun can cause much more serious health problems. Always be cautious to avoid the risk of sunburn.

Soldeoraa gives you the ability to tan in a controlled environment where your skin is our top priority. You will be able to build your tan gradually, while developing the pigmentation that increases your natural SPF and getting the vitamin D your body needs to stay healthy.

When your skin is not properly moisturized by a product like a tanning lotion, it reflects UV light and does not tan effectively. To get the most out of your tan as quickly as possible, a tanning lotion is nothing short of essential.

The Fitzpatrick Skin-Type Chart

You can use this skin-type chart for self-assessment, by adding up the score for each of the questions you’ve answered.

At the end there is a scale providing a range for each of the six skin-type categories. Following the scale is an explanation of each of the skin types. You can quickly and easily determine which skin type you are. In addition, you need to identify another aspect of your skin type. That is whether you have oily, dry, normal or sensitive skin. In order to do this visit ‘What’s my Skin type’.
