Ideal Effects With Proper Spray Tan

By Haywood Hunter

Many people don't have time or money to go and have a session or two in a sun bed. Not to mention that it is very hazardous to one's health. Many are now opting to have a Spray tan done instead. It is quick and easy and can be done in half the time it would be to have the same thing done on the bed.

There are so many different products on the market today that one is able to get the tan product and do it yourself. Whatever type of skin you might have there is a product that will work best for you. Have a look at the box if you are not sure which solution to use.

A sun tanning bed is a machine that emits ultraviolet radiation that will then produce a cosmetic tan. The normal bed will contain about seven fluorescent lamps that have phosphor blends. The spa beds can contain about 24 to 60 lamps, each with 100 to 200 watts. The home and smaller versions have about 12 to 28 lamps at 100 watts. A tanning booth is similar to a tanning bed, but with this one the person will be standing and the power output is higher.

The effect of the UV radiation can cause skin cancer, cataracts, premature skin aging as well as causing your immune system to become suppressed. This is why the World Health Organization no longer recommends this device. Many of these mainly emit UVA rays and this has been found to increase the risk of melanoma, which is one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer. Those that have used this and not worn goggles have reported having arc eye, or snow blindness.

The tan machine is very lightweight and is portable, weighing less than 10lbs. It will spray a super fine and atomized directional spay. It is especially designed for all heavy duty and rigorous use. The needle is of stainless steel so will last longer that plastic. The plastic one will break down overtime and will not produce a fine even spray as time progresses.

The modern tanning beds have evolved over the years but the low pressure one has still not evolved. The ballast, which is a device that limits the current in the electric circuit, is still in use but there are now other choices which include electronic and high frequency. Fluorescent lamps that create a spectrum of the UVA rays have had good results over the years to make them appear more sun-like.

Sun bathing also increases the risk of cancer as well as making you look older before your time. Many people do not have the time to be able to sit for a few hours in the sun to get that bronzed look. There are many different kinds on sunscreen that one can use, so that you do not burn but do get a light tan. Too long in the sun and you can develop very nasty blisters and the more times this happens the greater the risk of getting skin cancer later on in life.

The first spray tans that came on the market were in the year 1984. It was very expensive and only those that had the money were able to obtain it. Terracotta was the make and many reports state that it is still the best spray on the market today.
