There are many benefits to hiring a sunbed as opposed to visiting a tanning salon. These benefits range from being able to use the sunbed whenever you like, to hygiene benefits as you aren’t sharing the sunbed with other customers for the duration of your hire.

Having a sunbed ready for use in the comfort of your own home can also work out cheaper and more enjoyable as a whole, as you can tan at your own convenience without travelling or any additional costs per session.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of your sunbed hiring experience:

Hiring the Best Sunbed for Your Home:

Before you decide which kind of sunbed you’d like to hire, it’s important to first consider what you would like to use the sunbed for.For example, if you want the sunbed for relaxation purposes and you have a lot of space in your home, a canopy sunbed may be best for you. Our canopy sunbeds allow you to lie down and relax whilst delivering an all over, even tan.

If you have less space available, our stand up sunbeds are the perfect choice for you. They are compact in size and, like our canopy sunbeds, are fitted with body cooling fans to ensure a comfortable experience.

Finally, if you wish to hire a sunbed to help with a skin condition, our red light therapy sunbeds are the ideal choice for you. It encourages collagen stimulation which can help with acne, psoriasis and eczema whilst also providing a tan.

Safety During Your Sunbed Hire:

  • If you are going to hire a sunbed for home use, it is important to use them as safely as possible.
    One way to ensure this is to use goggles to protect your eyes when using a sunbed. Our goggles are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and provide complete UVA and UVB protection. We do not recommend using a sunbed without eye protection.
  • It is important to moisturise your skin before and after using a sunbed to reduce the risk of your skin drying out. Using tanning lotions helps prepare your skin for the UV exposure of a sunbed whilst also assisting with building a base tan.
  • It is important not to overuse a sunbed over a short period of time as this can lead to sunburn through overexposure.
    It is recommended that you should wait at least 48 hours after your last tanning session before using your sunbed again and if you experience any redness, you should not use a sunbed again until this has gone away.
  • If you currently take any medications, it is important to ensure you are able to use a sunbed whilst using these.
    Some medications contain side effects such as skin sensitivity when exposed to UV rays, which may result in skin burning during sunbed use.

Tips While Using your Sunbed at Home:

  • It is important that when you start using a sunbed, you do not immediately overexpose your skin. It is important to start out using the recommended time frames per session and build this up over time to ensure a safe and comfortable experience.
  • Before using a sunbed, prepping your skin properly is important. Showering and exfoliating your skin before sunbed use helps to create a good base for your tan to develop on.
  • When using a sunbed, it is important to protect sensitive parts of your skin such as your lips, which when exposed to UV rays can burn. Using a lip balm with SPF is recommended to ensure your lips remain protected during a tanning session.
  • When hiring out a canopy sunbed, wiping it down after each use is essential, especially when using tanning lotions, accelerators or moisturisers.

This is important if more than one person is using the sunbed during the lease for hygiene reasons, but also to ensure you are getting the most out of each tanning session, as accumulated dust and dirt may result in the sunbed not performing as intended.
