Tips for prolonging your tan

‟How frequently can I use solariums?”

From zero, without base colour:
Every other day until you reach your desired colour.

To maintain bronzage thereafter:
Once every 10-12 days if you are using high-pressure solarium machines, and once every 5-7 days if you are using low-pressure solarium machines.

‟Can I use solariums during menstruation?”

Yes, certainly! Please just note that if you tend to have low blood pressure during menstruation you should refrain from using standup machines on critical days.
