It is our duty to ensure that you tan responsibly and never over expose yourself to UV. To do this it is important that you know what your own specific skin ‘type’ is as this will determine whether or not your skin is suitable for tanning and for how long it can be exposed to UV before it starts burning. See the information below to help determine what your skin type is;
