Sunbeds Nottingham

Fancy getting a tan?

Sunbeds Nottingham

At 50p for every minute of tanning, or £22 for a 60 minute course, we guarantee to have the cheapest prices in Nottingham city centre.

At Formula One Gym, we have three excellent sunbeds available for use by both members and non-members. Within our reception, we have one lie down and two stand up sunbeds available, each containing 50+ 100 watt Philips cleo tubes.

To achieve a deeper, darker longer lasting tan we recommend that customers use a tanning lotion, we sell both individual sachets and bottles at reception. Our fully trained staff will be happy to advice on the lotion to suit your skin type and requirements.

We also recommend that customers wear wink-ease eye protectors at all times during the UV tanning, we kindly provide these free of charge. You should also make sure you drink plenty of water before using our sunbeds.

Can I Use a Sunbed?

Most people are able to use a sunbed but there are exceptions. If you answer YES to any of the questions below, you must NOT use a sunbed:

  • Are you aged under 18?
  • Do you always burn in natural sunlight?
  • Do you have a medical condition that becomes worse in sunlight?
  • Do you have an excessive amount of moles and/or freckles?
  • Do you have a history of sunburn, particularly from childhood?
  • Do you have skin cancer or does any member of your immediate family have/had skin cancer?

Also, if you are on any medication or drugs, please check with your GP or pharmacist before using a sunbed as certain drugs make the skin more sensitive to UV light. If you are pregnant, consult your GP before use.

Skin Typing

Our skin type is something we are born with and we cannot change it!

There are six basic categories of skin type. See if you can identify your skin type using the table below

1 Very fair - Usually, lots of freckles, red or sandy hair, blue or green eyes. High burn risk; skin turns red and peels.

Do NOT use a sunbed

2 Fair - Possibly with freckles, blonde to brown hair, blue or green eyes. High burn risk; great care should be taken in tanning.

3 Fair to light brown - No freckles; dark blonde or brown hair, blue or green eyes. Medium burn risk; capable of building up a moderate tan.

4 Light brown - Dark brown hair and eyes. Burning is rare; tanning is rapid and deep.

See additional note below

5 Deep brown skin - Dark hair and eyes. Burning is seldom; tanning is rapid and deep. This type of skin has its own natural protection.

See additional note below

6 Very dark skin - Black hair and dark eyes. Never burn in natural sunlight.

See additional note below

NB: Skin Types 4, 5 and 6: These skin types need to exercise precaution on initial exposure. Initial exposure should also be moderate if living in the UK as natural skin protection factor is depleted through lack of regular exposure to the sunshine.
