The Teens Drive the Tanning

The Teens Drive the Tanning

 ~by Samantha Lewis

shutterstock_4295347The utilization of tanning salons is growing, with teens leading the way. In fact, the teen market leads the way in many areas of the health and beauty market. Without that demographic, things like cosmetics, power drinks, fashion and more, would fall in revenue as quickly as the stock market does when it experiences one of those devastating crashes.   The long, hot days of summer are not as long as they used to be, especially in parts of the country that are transforming – whether it be through global warming or factors in climate change. The East Coast will be the first to talk about the polar vortex situation, and dealing with some of the worst winter months in years.   It is no surprise that beaches and pools are packed with sunbathers attempting to achieve a deep bronze tan before yet another winter slides into place (which truly is happening quicker every year.) But even with the summer, comes humidity so thick that a lot of outdoor lovers prefer to get their tan in the air-conditioned building, so they do not have to deal with the agony of yet another bad month.   Tanning is a category that has experienced, and will continue to experience, debate. However, no matter what the figures, facts or stories, the teen population will continue to flock to tanning salons in order to get the look they want. And when it comes to tanning salons, they need to head into a salon that will not only provide them with what they want, but also provide them with the best technology, ‘5-star’ services, and skilled employees who will make sure that the fun of tanning runs hand-in-hand with the safety of tanning. This is exactly what The TAN Company and Spray La Vie do when it comes to providing valuable services and products!   UVR exposure comes from hours in the sun; the component of the sun’s rays that tan and burn the skin. But instead shutterstock_2314022 (1)of having to deal with great looking skin for only three months out of the year, the teens make sure to keep up their summertime sessions in UVR tanning booths so the golden color they love doesn’t have to disappear. . Dermatologists worry. Not only because of an overexposure that puts someone in the path of skin cancer, but also because of less frightening skin worries, like wrinkles, weathering, and faster aging that will come later in life. And even though some health professionals will tell you there is no safe way to tan, The TAN Company and Spray la Vie not only offer the most technologically advanced systems, but they also make sure to provide information, and sell products that can help with these safety issues.   Tanning is mostly done for cosmetic reasons when you’re young. People still view tanned skin as healthy and attractive, and people usually feel healthier when they have a tan. Of course, what they are feeling is the emotion of being better looking, which gives them a better sense of confidence. Because of this, it is no surprise to see that the statistics of tanning have sky-rocketed in this demographic, making the indoor tanning industry into a $5 billion-a-year industry. Every day, more than a million people visit tanning salons, and out of the 30 million that visit, teenagers, and women between the ages of sixteen and twenty-nine make up most of the numbers. Popularity will continue to rise, which means choosing The TAN Company or Spray la Vie will lead you down the best ad safest path to golden skin!   Yet another trend that is bringing teens in by leaps and bounds has to do with health and fitness. More and more are searching for that normal weight, however. Thankfully, more people in 2014 understand that thin can be too thin, just as overweight can be too overweight. With each new day, Xist Fitness is seeing teens walk through the doors, and they are teaching them the best ways to get and stay healthy.   When it comes to the teenage population, it is a very good thing that BAM Franchises created lasting companies that will shape, teach, and help the next generation.
