Do you tan? If so how often? Which equipment?

Hi everyone, just curious how many salon owners here tan? Do you maintain your tan year round? Or take time off? Do you use your higher UVA output beds or prefer the higher UVB 20 minute beds? I own a salon and have tanned pretty regularly for 3 years now and was a tanner prior to opening my salon. I am not sure if it's time to give my skin a rest and stop for a while or if it's a hard sell if I'm not tan, will my clients trust me to sell to them? Any input from you all is appreciated. Thanks :)

I've owned for 26 years...always have tanned. Favor traditional HP....not into high output reddening low pressure lamps either. All tube lamps very low in UVB rating. 2.6 and less.
If anything, I stay out of the sun when possible (shade) if outdoors. My favorite bed is a uwe sunboard plus. Would like to tan in a mastersun.

Mastersun is my preferred bed. I'll bounce between my Mastersun and Vega Lux Standup. I tan three days a week year round for the vitamin D.

I do all & keep a medium base all year. Customers are definitely looking at this and always mentioned if I get too busy & slack off. So, I personally think we have to model what we are trying to sell.

If you need a break, have you considered spray or even cocktailing?

If you can believe it..I don't. I am a skin type 1…very fair skinned red head genes. I use the beds at least once to twice a week for about 6-8 mins to maintain my Vitamin D levels…which BTW were LOW on my recent physical which was surprising. I typically maintain by spray tanning or bronzers. Wish I could get a nice tan naturally.
