i just started tanning today at a indoor tanning salon for the first time...and about 3 hrs later my skin started itching and burning...i'm assuming it might be sunburn or could it be something else? i'm very light skinned brown hair w/ brown eyes...i don't rarely tan that much and i didn't use any lotion when i was tanning..the guy that worked there told me that usually first timers go in for about 13 min but i dont' think i stayed in there for 13 min..could i have sunburn or is it a heat rash....it itches like crazy now...and i have huge red stripes down my back where i guess the lamps are....can someone tell me if this is normal? and if it is sunburn how long should i wait till i go back for another session?

My first thought is that you were definitely allowed an exposure time that was too much. The "guy" must be a bit of an ?diot. By now, I will assume that you have developed a burn? Patronize a salon that gives you a skin analysis, basis initial exposure times based on the those reults and the recommendations of the bed and/or lamp manufacturers. Let the redness clear up and find a better salon. Good luck.

13 minutes? Heck. The first time I went to the salon I got 5 minutes and it was enough. Never got a sunburn either. You should go to another salon, like the person above said ;/

I totally agree about too much time. When I first go back after some time away I usually start out with 5 minutes and work up to fifteen over a weeks time. Usually I go for 5 minutes, then seven, then eight for a couple days, then 12, 12 and 15. After 15 for a few days I am ready for 20. Take care,

IF THE SALON IS CERTIFIED "SMART TAN" THEY SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE RIGHT EXPOSURE

Maybe you are as dark as you are going to get. If you have reached your natural tanning plateau, a good tingle lotion should get you past it. Sometimes we don't realize how dark we actually are, especially if you have no tanlines as a reference. If you have been using a tingle for some time you may have developed a resistance and may need to go back to a less potent lotion for awhile.

As for the first part of your post see this: www.tanningtruth.com

I have used both tingle and non-tingle, I am always ready and excited to try new lotions. I like tingles more in the winter but I seriously do not see more of a difference. I have used DS Siren, Bombshell, and now JA Platinum. I do like the microcirculation but when the red goes away I really do not feel as if I am getting more. One of the main reasons I use tingle is for the more "natural" color and the fact that it is supossed to break plateaus...not convinced any suggestions?
