CAN I TAN WHILE I AM PREGNANT?
Every pregnancy is different, and therefore consulting your GP is the best place to start when it comes to indoor tanning during pregnancy. At this time there are no studies on the effects of using sunbeds during pregnancy, but because the UV light used in sunbeds does not reach the child, your baby is not at risk. However, during the first trimester your doctor will most likely advise you not to do anything that will raise your body’s temperature, so it may be best to avoid indoor tanning during this period. It is also important to consider that that your skin during pregnancy is more sensitive to burning, and therefore the use of sunbeds should be more carefully monitored.
