Preparing for the beautification process of your wedding can get overwhelming. You may be considering getting a tan for your wedding, but you have never been to a tanning salon. Have no fear. This guide was created to give you the basic information necessary to get you prepared for your first visit to the tanning salon. If you follow the tips in this guide you will be completely prepared.

The first thing that you are going to need to do is create a list of tanning salons that you would like to visit. You can ask friends and family for advice. They will provide honest feedback, and help you steer clear from salons they have had previous bad experiences with.

Once you have found a salon you wish to visit, give them a call and schedule an appointment. It is a good idea that you purchase a tanning package. Most salons offer packages for a discounted price. For instance, ten tans for one hundred dollars. It will probably take you multiple visits to get the tan you desire, which is why you should invest in a package.

Before you arrive for your appointment make sure that you have showered at least the night before. You are going to need to bring a lotion with you. Tanning lotions are wonderful at helping you get the tan you desire quicker, but they come with a high price tag. Typical tanning time is usually 20 minutes, but you should probably start with 10 minutes your first few visits to avoid burning, and that is at your discretion.

When you arrive at the tanning salon for the first time, the staff will show you the routine. They should show you where the clean towels are and how to work the bed. Most beds have radios and small fans inside of them. You will need to purchase tanning goggles from the salon to protect your eyes. Goggles are usually only a dollar or two. Most salons offer small stickers. Apply the sticker prior to tanning. Place the sticker in the same location each time you tan, this will help you keep track of your tanning progress. Always make sure that the beds are clean. If you are unsure, kindly ask a staff member to re-clean the bed for you.

Going to the tanning salon for the first time can be a bit scary when you do not understand the process. This guide was created to give you the basic information necessary to get you prepared prior to your first visit to the tanning salon. If you follow this guide it should be a fun relaxing experience.
