.

1. If you have never been on a sunbed, or if you are fair skinned or burn easily, keep your sessions to 3 minutes. You can then build this up very gradually as you start to develop a tan, but be wary - overdoing it is dangerous.
2. Use sunbed lotion to protect your skin and maximise tanning. 
3. ALWAYS wear tanning goggles to protect your eyes.
4. Protect your lips with UV lip balm - as lips do not produce melanin they are at risk of burning.
5. If you are unfortunate enough to get sun burnt soothe your skin with moisturiser and do not return to the sunbed until all of the redness has gone.
6. Always make sure that you eat and drink water before tanning to avoid feeling unwell during your sunbed session.
7. Exfoliate before you start tanning, and keep skin moisturised for best results, and to reduce your risk of burning.
Once you have a fabulous tan, from sunbeds or the sun, check out our top tips on how to make your tan last.

How to heal sunburn

How to heal sunburn

 

.
.
The weather has been a little up and down lately, but we're so happy to have been treated to a few hot, sunny days. However, unfortunately, we can get a little overexcited and forget to take the proper precautions to avoid sunburn. 
We've all been there - it's red, it's hot, it can be blistery, painful and peeling. When we get sunburnt we want to heal it as quickly as possible so we can enjoy the sun again (armed with plenty of factor 50 this time). 
So here are our top tips to heal sunburnt skin as quickly as possible...
1. Cool the affected skin as soon as possible, ideally using ice. Follow with a cold bath or shower, and avoid hot or warm water. 
2. Use products with a high water content, and look for the following ingredients:
Aloe Vera
Cucumber
Shea butter
Rose water
Calamine
Lanolin balm
Fresh cucumber can also be applied directly to the burnt areas to cool and hydrate. 
3. Avoid using exfoliates and skin products that contain the following ingredients for a few days:
Petroleum
Benzocaine
Lidocaine
4. Keep the area moisturised to avoid peeling. Look for moisturisers containing high levels of vitamins C and E. 
5. Avoid the sun until the redness has disappeared. If you must go out in the sun, cover the affected areas and use plenty of sun cream. 
.
.
 Anyone who's been sunburnt before will probably agree that prevention is better than cure. So ensure that you're using the correct sun cream - one that is high factor and says the words 'broad spectrum' on the bottle. Reapply every two hours and take regular breaks in the shade. 
.
Using sunbeds in advance of your holiday can kick start your tan and begin to build up a resistance to burning. Check out our top tips to use sunbeds safely and avoid getting burnt. Keep an eye on the blog to find out when Bliss will reopen and offer our much loved sunbeds and spray tans again!

Bliss Sunbeds vs. Spray Tans: The Great Debate   

24 Feb 2020

Bliss Sunbeds vs. Spray Tans: The Great Debate

An upsetting side effect of winter is that summer tans are long gone, leaving us a lighter shade of pale. Whilst some people are lucky enough to rock the English Rose look no problem, many of us mourn the loss of our bronzed skin with great sadness. Luckily, Bliss is here to rescue you from a winter of pasty pale skin. Bliss offers two different ways to recover your summer glow: sunbeds or spray tans, and our handy blog post will help you decide which one is for you. 
.
.
Contrary to common belief, there are actually plenty of health benefits of using sunbeds. The body converts sunshine into vitamin D, which helps to boost your immune system and increase bone strength. Research has also suggested that it may even help to protect us against depression, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. So for anyone with vitamin D deficiency, or anyone who is worried about, or at risk of, any of the above health problems, sunbeds should be considered. Pre-holiday sun beds also reduce the risk of burning whilst you're away, as they build up some resistance to the sun.
.
Anyone who suffers from skin conditions such as Acne, Psoriasis and Eczema will find that sunbeds are very effective in helping to treat these. Many dermatologists also praise sunbeds for it's benefits in treating dermatitis. Even if you don't suffer from a skin condition, sunbeds make skin less prone to spots, which I think we'd all appreciate!
.
This isn't to say that the usual warning about skin cancer should be ignored- it's still very important to protect yourself from burning and tan safely. For those who burn very easily, spray tans may be a better option. In contrast to sunbeds there is no exposure to radiation, and no risk of burning and the associated health issues. It is also a faster option- you can simply pop down to your local Bliss the day before an event or holiday and you'll be the perfect shade of bronze for the big day. Sunbeds are best used for a gradual tanning which builds up more slowly but lasts for as long as you keep topping it up, or for prolonging your tan post holiday. Another benefit of sunbeds is that your colour is all natural.
.
It's important to think about the pros and cons before you decide on a tanning method, and it's always important to protect yourself on sunbeds. At Bliss we encourage tanning sensibly and safely at all times. Whichever you choose, Bliss is here to help you keep that summer glow and feel fabulous all year round!
Fast tanning October Offer: 100 minutes for £19.95! Course share us available.
.
Do check our monthly offers regularly as we feature amazing deals on both sunbeds and spray tans.

How to heal sunburnt skin

 We're loving the sunny weather we've been treated to recently, and we adore sunning ourselves abroad in the summer. Not to mention we're also a little bit obsessed with sunbeds. However, unfortunately, we can get a little overexcited and forget to take the proper precautions to avoid sunburn.

Bliss' Top Tips for Spring/ Summer Tanning

Bliss' Top Tips for Spring/ Summer Tanning

It's that time of the year again when our thoughts turn to transforming our pale skin into a bronzed beauty. To help you get bronzed for summer, Bliss are offering an amazing 80 mins for £19.95 on our fast-tan sunbeds, which is awesome! Sunbeds are fab if you struggle to tan, want to prepare your skin for a holiday abroad, want to improve your skin, or if you just feel better with a tan. But if you are going to hit the sunbeds this summer, pour top tips first to ensure the best results and minimum damage & danger. sunbed deal leeds 

 If you have never been on a sunbed, or if you are fair skinned or burn easily, keep your sessions to 3 minutes. You can then build this up very gradually as you start to develop a tan - good things take a little time and overdoing it is a terrible idea. 
2. Use sunbed lotion to protect your skin and maximise tanning. 
3. ALWAYS wear tanning goggles to protect your eyes.
4. Protect your lips with UV lip balm - as lips do not produce melanin they are at risk of burning.
5. If you are unfortunate enough to get sun burnt soothe your skin with moisturiser and do not return to the sunbed until all of the redness has gone.
6. Always make sure that you eat and drink water before tanning to avoid feeling unwell during your sunbed session.
7. Exfoliate before you start tanning, and keep skin moisturised for best results, and to reduce your risk of burning.
