I have an unlimited tanning package. Why can’t I tan as many times as I want? Twice in one Day?

There is no such thing as an unlimited tanning package. The word “Unlimited” is just a marketing term for a monthly package. Based on Health Canada’s regulations on the manufacturing and importation of equipment, there is a maximum exposure time per day. This is based on a calculation to reduce the risk of overexposure to a consumer. This is also based on the client’s Skin Type. You should always follow the amount of time the manufacturer recommends between sessions. Most recommend 3 times a week when building a tan and 1 to 3 times a week to maintain a tan. No manufacturer recommends tanning more than once a day.

The JCTA recommends tanning every second day at a maximum. This way, if you accidentally overdid it on a session, your skin has time to repair. Remember the key is moderation. Follow the JCTA Professional Standard, and make sure the person controlling the equipment is industry certified and trained.
