The List Of The Most Essential Tanning Bed Supplies
By Bianca Bartegi
A sunless tanning business is a sure way to make a profit by cashing in on the fashion trends that tan skins is more attractive than pale. For those who love the look of summer sun kissed skin, they can keep it all year round by visiting the tanning salon.
Tanning salon businesses run throughout the year, but it seems they are busiest when people are preparing for the upcoming summer season. They want to look good in their shorts and bathing suits before actually going out in the sunny weather. That being said, a good tanning salon needs to make sure it is always prepared for the start of summer and the winter vacation travel seasons alike.
Keeping A Supply of Tanning Bed Supplies
It takes a lot to keep a tanning business running smoothly. To be sure you are ready for the rush, check that the following is always on hand or under some sort of automatic ordering system, so you are never caught with burnt out bulbs or lack of disinfectant. The supplies can be divided into two categories: the must have and then supplies that are a convenience for customers.
Bulbs Disinfectant spray and paper towels Sunless tanning lotions Skin conditioning lotions UV protecting eye wear Disposable eye protection.
The bulbs are essential to getting the most from the tanning experience. If a customer comes and the bulbs are not at 100 percent, then they will be cheated of the whole tanning session. Set up automatic delivery and a routine schedule for changing out old bulbs. Newer bulbs will provide a faster tanning experience.
Sanitation should be of the utmost concern. Many people tan completely naked and need a sanitized bed upon which to lie. It is extremely important that each time someone uses a tanning bed that it is sprayed with disinfectant spray and wiped down with disposable paper towels.
Niceties for Good Customer Relations
Lotions and cr"mes that enhance the tanning experience are a nice (and also lucrative) extra that tanning salon owners can provide customers. The indoor tanning products help bring out a richer tan under this type of UV light. The conditioning lotions care for skin between visits as the lights can be drying to skin if proper care isn't taken.
Eye protection is essential, but providing it on site is an added benefit. The eyelid skin is too thin to protect the eye so, special goggles must be worn. If a first time customer comes into the salon they may not be aware of the need for the eye protection and will be unprepared. You can sell them on the spot a pair of goggles or offer a disposable pair for one time use. These discs form into a cone and reflect the light. They are slightly adhesive and stick gently to the skin around the eye.
Tanning bed supplies such as these will make for a smooth running operation. The effect of a well stocked salon will keep customers returning season after season.
