Sun Seekers offers customers a tanning environment that will ensure your comfort, health and safety.
Be patient, a real tan must be built gradually – there is no such thing as a quick natural tan.
After your sunbed session you will need to wait 24 hours to see the results.
In order to build a tan you can start with a sunbed session every other day, but remember to leave at least 24 hours (ideally 48 hours) between each tanning session.
At Sun Seekers, we have well maintained sunbeds that are thoroughly sanitised between use and we offer some little extras like makeup remover, deodorant, goggles and refreshments.
Our staff are trained to give you the right tanning advice and help you get the results you want.
We are able to offer you the option of upright or lay down sunbeds, all of which are fitted with 0.3 regulation tubes which comply with EU standards on safe UVB output.
These sunbeds will enable you to build your tan sensibly and have longer tanning sessions without the risk of burning.
0.3 Tanning – The best way to tan!
There is a regulation governing the maximum UV output of sunbeds.
This is generally referred to as 0.3 and is approved by the EU and complies with all British and European consumer safety regulations.
A 0.3 tanning session delivers the same tanning effect as the mid-day Mediterranean summer sun but without the risk of burning.
0.3W/m2 is the amount of UV exposure that the EU’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP) set as the limit for effective irradiance.
This limit was then added to the European and British standards relevant for sunbeds.
A sunbed with a UV output above this level is deemed as ‘unsafe’.
What you can expect from a 0.3 tanning session:
☀ Your tan will be deeper and longer-lasting
☀ The tanning process is kinder to your skin
☀ The risk of over-exposure or burning is effectively eliminated
All new clients are required to undertake a consultation to identify skin type and ensure that appropriate session times are agreed.
Our staff will be pleased to explain the service that we offer and discuss your requirements.
It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to use a sunbed so you will be asked to provide proof of your date of birth if you look under 25.
For a flawless and streak-free tan
St Tropez Spray Tan offers the most natural of all the self tanning products.
There is no colour choice – one solution suits all skin types as it reacts with your natural melanin to give a sun-kissed healthy glow.
Also available is ‘One Night Stand’ Spray Tan for a gorgeous dark glow.
The treatment will be carried out by an experienced professional; it takes about 15 minutes start to finish and you will need to leave the treatment to develop for at least 2-4 hours to produce an amazing, natural looking tan.
If you are preparing for a special occasion or holiday, it is best to have the tan applied 1-2 days in advance.
Your tan will last for 5-7 days with careful maintenance and regular moisturising.
You will need to use a waterproof sun tan lotion to maintain your tan on holiday.
Exfoliate and moisturise the day before the treatment, concentrating on dry areas such as knees, elbows and ankles
Face make-up and deodorant need to be removed before the treatment
For best results do not use any other self tanning products for one week before the treatment
On the day of treatment, shower with a non oily shower gel and DO NOT moisturise as it can act as a barrier
Shaving and waxing should be done at least 24 hours prior to treatment
Wear loose baggy and dark clothing (no jeans), flip flops or loose fitting shoes
