Moderate tanning of 2-3 sessions a week is OK for everyone else but ensure you rest the skin for a minimum of 24 hours between each session and at least 48 hours for skin type 2. The European Standard advises not to exceed 60 sessions per annum.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how long does it take to see results from a tanning bed?
A: Usually, you will begin to notice results after a few tanning sessions, but it may take a few weeks of regular tanning (at least three times a week) to get the color you are looking for. If you are developing a base tan before going on a trip, you would want to start tanning about three to four weeks before you go.
How long should you go in a tanning bed for the first time?
Start Slow. Less is more, particularly for first-time tanners. Though it may seem like the longer you stay in a tanning bed, the more tan you will become, you can risk burning your skin if you stay in too long. Your first tanning session should last around five to seven minutes.
How long should you stay in the tanning bed for the first time?
Initially, your first tanning session should only last from 6 to 8 minutes. You may need to stay at this time for several sessions before bumping it up. If ever your skin is burned, wait till the burn is completely gone before tanning again, and bump your time down.
