Wow! Helps a lot that you already used it. Thanks blossom! How does it work? Sorry but it is all in German and I don't understand a word of it :-/I’ve used that bed before and really like it. The worker at the tanning salon told me that the basic entry level 20 minute bed is all you really need for increasing vitamin D and helping SAD even though it doesn’t tan you as much. The ergoline prestige 1100 bed was more expensive so I just used it for special occasions when I wanted a little more color. I never used it exclusively or did a comparison between it and the cheapest bed on how my vitamin D levels were impacted. I definitely always felt good after a session in it. The salon attendant also said the ergoline was closer to the sun you’d get from a day at the beach. I don’t have any science on any of this though just my personal experience.
Yes, swimming shorts or underwear is fine. Some people go nude but you have to be careful of parts that have never gotten much uv exposure so you don’t burn those areas. My husband just wears his boxer shorts. I always wear the goggles and usually cover my face for most of the time too. I’d ask the workers what the maximum time would be for your skin type and just do half of that time.Wow! Helps a lot that you already used it. Thanks blossom! How does it work?

So I go there in swimming shorts like I would go to the beach and protective goggles, and then just lay on the bed for some minutes? Anything special to be aware of?
Thanks a lot Blossom. Yeah I am worried about eyes and balls so I will cover these with an extra towel. I think that would block all the spectrum?Yes, swimming shorts or underwear is fine.

I have been doing the same thing for years. It makes a huge positive difference in my mood, and my skin looks younger than a lot of other women my age (44).My subjective and completely anecdotal experience is that they cure my SAD, whereas nothing else does much. 15 minutes every other day and my winters are as good as summers, feelings wise.
