How to Get the Perfect Tan: Tips for Using Your Indoor Tanning Machine

If you're looking for a year-round tan, an at-home indoor tanning machine like the Illuminate Tanner or the Illuminate ProTan could be a great investment. These devices offer a convenient and safe way to achieve a golden glow without the need for expensive salon sessions or risking sunburn outdoors. But how can you ensure that you get the perfect tan with your Illuminate device? Here are some tips to help you maximize your tanning results:

Exfoliate beforehand:

Before using your Illuminate device, it's important to exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells. This will help your tan to develop more evenly and last longer. Use a gentle scrub or exfoliating glove in the shower before your tanning session.

Moisturize after:

After tanning, it's important to moisturize your skin regularly to maintain your tan and keep it looking healthy. Use a lotion that is specifically designed for tanning or one that contains aloe vera to soothe and hydrate your skin.

Start slow:

If you're new to indoor tanning, it's important to start with short sessions and gradually increase the duration over time. This will help you avoid overexposure and reduce the risk of burning or damaging your skin.

Use goggles: 

To protect your eyes from the UV rays emitted by your indoor tanning machine, always wear goggles specifically designed for indoor tanning. This will help you avoid eye irritation and potential damage to your vision.

Follow the instructions: Each Illuminate device will have slightly different instructions, so be sure to carefully read and follow the guidelines provided with your Illuminate device. This will help you get the best results and avoid any potential safety issues.

While indoor tanning has some risks, following these tips and using your Illuminate device properly can help you achieve a safe and beautiful tan in the comfort of your own home. Remember to always be cautious and consult with a medical professional if you have any concerns about the safety of indoor tanning.
