To use a standing tanning bed, a person should wear goggles that fit properly, wear a swimsuit that prevents tan lines and stand correctly with the arms placed above the head, keeping the legs apart and arching the back. Those people using a standing tanning bed can move around throughout the session to stay comfortable and to get an even tan.
Standing tanning beds are usually stronger in terms of ultraviolet light than standard tanning beds. Therefore, it is important that people apply lotion right after tanning and each day thereafter to keep their skin hydrated. Exfoliating before a tanning session is also helpful to remove dead skin and promote a more even tan.
