Sunbed Safely 101

We all want to be a little bit more golden when Summer rolls around, and with Zorgvliet Spa’s Summer Glow Sunbed Special it’s never been easier or more affordable to be a bronzed goddess.
















Whether for one session or ten please keep these Sunbed Safety tips in mind whenever making use of any sunbed treatment.


  1. Know your skin. Do you burn easily in natural sunlight? Do you always burn in natural sunlight? Do you have a medical condition that becomes worse in sunlight? Do you have an excessive amount of moles and/or freckles? Do you have a history of sunburn, particularly from childhood? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions Zorgvliet Spa recommends an alternative tanning method for you.
  2. If you have answered no to the above questions you are a good candidate for Sunbed Tanning.
  3. Wear tanning goggles during every session.
  4. Do not exceed the number of minutes advised to you by Zorgvliet’s trained therapists, this is ten minutes in the upright Tanning pods used at the spa.
  5. Consider applying SPF to those areas that are not used to sun exposure if you choose to tan with no swimwear on.
  6. Always remove your make-up and use a lip balm with SPF before tanning.
  7. If you begin to feel dizzy, weak, burned, or sick, stop tanning immediately.
  8. Do not use a sunbed more than once in a 24 hour period.
  9. Moist skin tans better so stay hydrated, and be generous with your favourite body lotion.
  10. Always be cautious when using a sunbed. Remember it may take some time after your treatment for your tan to develop.
