Skin Type 3

Skin Type III

A Skin Type III will tan easily, but still sunburn. This is the most common skin type in North America.


Although a Skin Type III can achieve a tan easily, they are still susceptible to overexposure. The CEO at your local Fabutan tanning salon will help determine an exposure schedule that will help a Skin Type III achieve the color they want. This skin type's initial sun bed session will likely be between 8-12 minutes.

A Skin Type III, in most cases, has the natural ability to readily absorb UVB through their skin at a high enough degree to maintain a healthy Vitamin D blood level. However, it can be difficult for all skin types to absorb sufficient amounts of UVB to maintain Vitamin D levels year-round, particularly in northern climates such as North America. During the dark winter months, it's important to follow a sun bed exposure schedule set out by a Fabutan CEO to help maintain or increase Vitamin D levels.

If you’re unsure of your Vitamin D blood level, consult your doctor.
