Give your staff the power to tell tanning’s truth

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Does your staff have the power to tell the whole truth about tanning to your clients and your potential clients? Having your staff pass Smart Tan’s “Tanning Truth Certification” gives your salon that power.

And clients who understand and feel comfortable with tanning make better clients.

2008-05-20-tanning-truth-copy.jpgThe main points: Sun exposure and the suntan that results from time in the sun are a natural part of human life. Exposure to UV light is necessary for humans to function properly for many reasons. As a professionally trained indoor tanning operator it is your responsibility to understand and help spread the good word about sunlight and to be an “ambassador” for the merits of smart tanning and sunburn prevention.

The indoor tanning community has thrived for nearly 30 years in North America because:

  • Base tans work. A tan, combined with proper use of sunscreen outdoors, provides better sunburn protection than sunscreen usage alone.
  • There are benefits. People do recognize both the cosmetic benefits of having a tan as well as the positive psychological and physiological benefits that have been associated with regular exposure to UV light from the sun or from indoor tanning.

These benefits, of course, must be balanced with the risks associated with overexposure to sunlight. And that’s what we do in professional tanning facilities today.

And that’s just the beginning. For more information about Smart Tan’s Tanning Truth certification call Smart Tan at 800-652-3269 or 866-795-3755 in Canada.
