Solarium - a device that generates radiation, which under the influence of the skin begins to synthesize the melanocytes and acquires the desired bronze shade. The radiation produced by solarium is almost identical to the sun. There are several types of tanning beds, which can be divided into professional and home. The main difference between them is that in a small number of home tanning lamps, usually not exceeding 24.
