Updated 26.01.18: The Skin Type Guide graphic has been updated and is now printable. Please print out and use in your tanning salon to encourage safe tanning. If you are a Cyrano customer and would like to brand it with your salon’s logo and colours, please contact us for a digital copy.
Everybody’s skin reacts differently to sunlight. Despite all of the guides, tips and tricks, it remains the responsibility of the tanner to know and understand their own skin type. However, with the help of trained salon staff and guides like this, it is not be hard to determine how often and long you should tan – if at all. The following guide obviously involves some generalisation and should therefore only be used as a guide, not as medical advice.To use the guide, read all of the descriptions before deciding which one you think best describes your skin. It is advised that you get a second opinion from a trained salon employee.
IMPORTANT: Always remember to build up the length of your tanning sessions slowly to avoid overexposure.
