Arizona Tanning Guide: How to Tan Safely, Healthily, and Beautifully

Arizona tanning

Arizona tanning culture has been around for decades, so we’ve pretty much figured it all out. Here are some tanning tips so that you can approach this, not only looking good, but also safely.

What’s the Recommended SPF to Safely Tan?

Whether you want to tan or not, you will always need some kind of protection on your skin. After all, tanning without any sort of sun protection will often result in severe sunburns and some long-lasting health consequences. In order to avoid this, look out for high SPF numbers on tanning lotions so that you can gain some color on your skin with the appropriate protection in place. The lowest SPF you should be reaching for when you’re tanning is SPF 15. Anything lower than that can put you at risk because it will offer virtually no protection. You should only use lower SPF tanning oils if you will be using them with a higher SPF sunscreen.

How Long Should You Tan?

It’s always good to remember that the time it will take for you to tan will vary depending on your skin color, the weather, and, funnily enough, your position in relation to the equator. However, most people will tan within one to two hours under the sun. Keep in mind that burns and tans will usually take a while to set in, so don’t make decisions based on whether you are already getting any color or not. Arizona tanning, even while protected, will always come with its risks, so try not to overextend your stay underneath the sun. Be sure to protect yourself, beyond just using the right SPF (of at least 30, no less than 15), by staying hydrated, alternating with some time in the shade, and limiting direct exposure.

What’s the Best Sun Tanning Oil?

When balancing out safety and your tan, safety should always come first. Don’t make any sacrifices in that area just to show off a tan, because it’s really not worth it. We at Arizona Sun, however, have developed the best sun tanning products so that you can safely enjoy the sun and gain some color.
