Tanning beds are hugely popular. They’re effective in giving you that gorgeous summer glow that leaves you feeling super confident and ready for the summer. If you’re considering getting yourself a tanning bed, how do you know which one is best for you? 

Choosing the Right Tanning Bed

Depending on your tanning goals, choosing the right sunbed can make the difference.

You want to find a bed that suits your needs and wants. One that has the right level of lighting for your particular skin tone and gives you a nice, balanced tan without causing unnecessary harm to your skin. This can easily get very overwhelming! 

Tanning beds come in different levels. Levels 1 and 2 use low-pressure bulbs, unlike levels 3-6 that use medium to high-pressure bulbs. The latter provides more UVA rays and fewer UVB rays, which gives you a darker tan. The higher the level, the quicker you will tan, and the darker your tan will be. 

Levels 1 and 2 are perfect for those of you looking for a light tan for minimal cost. If you’re always on the go and you need a super quick tan that will last a long time, go for levels 3 or 4. 

Styles of Tanning Beds

Not all tanning beds are the same. When you’re choosing the right tanning bed, you should also consider the style of bed. Do you want low-pressure beds or high-pressure beds with a booth? 

Low-pressure beds are more traditional options where the UV rays are emitted in a spectrum that mimics natural light. If you burn easily, these are not recommended. High-pressure beds emit a smaller portion of UVA rays that penetrate deeper into your skin. This gives you a longer-lasting tan and is usually more expensive. If you have fair skin and burn easily, this is a better option for you.
