Skin Type 1
People with very fair/sensitive skin and often with red/strawberry blond hair and freckles, pale blue, pale grey or pale green eyes. People who hardly or never tan. Recommendations: You should not tan on a sunbed or outdoors.
Skin Type 2

Skin Type 4
People with dark skin who tan easily and hardly ever burn, but even so need to be careful that they don’t go through prolonged over-exposure.
Recommendations: You tan easily but should never have more than the full recommended session time.
There are skin types 5 & 6, 5 being naturally brown skin and 6 being brown/black skin. Generally, customers wishing to use sunbeds will fall into skin types 3 and 4.
Tanning should be undertaken with caution. To ensure you tan effectively and responsibly please read the following information before using the solaria:
- If you have sensitive skin or no existing tan your first few sessions must be limited to 3 minutes, until your base tan has built up.
- All tans must be built up gradually.
- Prior to tanning, you must remove all cosmetics, perfumes, deodorants, jewellery & contact lenses.
- Never use the tanning equipment without eye protection. This is available from leisure reception.
- If any signs of redness remain from a previous tanning session, you must wait until this clears before your next session.
