Sunbed Hire Nottingham From Coco Sunbeds

A brief history of sunbed tanning!

For centuries pale white skin was the preferred look as it showed people you were rich enough not to work outside. A long time ago having a tan was considered unattractive as it was proof that you laboured outside in the sun!. People who laboured outside were normally considered poor or working class. Indeed hundreds of years ago it was fashionable to make your skin look whiter by applying white powder or chalk. Many women even applied corrosive white lead to their bodies to look paler. Upper-class women would wear large hats, walk around with parasols and wear full-body clothing even in the United Kingdom!

Then in 1923 as the legend goes the famous fashion designer Coco Chanel is believed to have started the fashion for sun tanned skin. The story states that she returned from a holiday in Cannes after accidentally taking in too much sun whilst aboard a yacht. Coco Chanel had sparked the fashion for tanned skin that has been with us to this very day. Very soon after everyone wanted to look tanned. Instead of wanting to look pale and white the rich and famous started travelling to sunny places or used an indoor tanning sunlamp.

By the 1970`s it became normal for people to travel abroad on holiday and work on their tans. In addition tanning salons and sunbed companies began springing up around the country to cater for those that wanted tanned skin but either could not afford to travel abroad (yes it used to be very expensive to go on holiday!) or worried about spending too much time in the sun and getting sunburnt. If you are planning a holiday or simply want to look tanned and healthy then contact Coco Sunbeds today to book your home sunbed. You can also find more information by looking at our sunbed FAQ`s page.

The latest tanning sunbeds we offer deliver the same tanning effect as the mid-day Mediterranean summer sun but in a controlled environment without the risk of burning. You can obtain a deep and long-lasting tan by sticking to our recommended sunbed hire exposure times.
