Can Anyone Go Tanning?

If you are wondering whether or not all people can go tanning, the answer is no. There are some people who are too sensitive to UV light exposure, or who retain underlying medical conditions or medicinal requirements that render them highly vulnerable to sun exposure.

Take albinism for instance; those born with a lack of melanin (skin pigmentation) can be very sensitive to both climate and sun exposure. Some people take medications or have medical conditions that place them more at risk to sun exposure.

Tanning While Pregnant

Normally, there is no serious or immediate risk to an unborn fetus in terms of UV tanning, however, there are rare exceptions depending on manufacturer malfunctions, medical conditions, excessive tanning, medication use, and more. In most cases, the only outcome from tanning while pregnant is a tan mommy-to-be!

The Skin Complexion Tanning Spectrum

Melanin ranges on a broad spectrum of skin complexion. Those with paler skin have less melanin while those with darker skin have more melanin. This spectrum is one tool you can use to gauge your skin’s sensitivity or vulnerability to UVA or UVB light exposure. Are you someone that:

➀ Always Burns and Never Tans?
➁ Always Burns and Rarely Tans?
➂ Burns But Tans Sometimes?
➃ Burns Sometimes But Tans Easily?
➄ Rarely Burns and Tans Easily?
➅ Never Burns and Tans Dark?

You can use this 1-6 guide above to understand where you fit on the tanning spectrum. If you are closer to the top of the list, regularly burning and rarely tanning, you might not be the best candidate for tanning, but you can still do it so long as you take the proper precautions. If you fall lower on the list, such as someone who tans easily and hardly ever burns, or never burns at all, you will have a better result with both outdoor and indoor tanning.

Regardless of where you fit on the tanning spectrum, it is important to always protect your skin in the sun or the tanning bed by wearing a quality sunscreen at the proper level of SPF. Those with lighter or paler skin should wear a higher level of SPF, while those with darker skin can get away with wearing a lower SPF sunscreen.
