The most essential accessory for tanning beds is goggles. If you don’t have tanning bed eye protection goggles, you don’t tan in a tanning bed.
It’s that simple!
Almost all the tanning bed salons will give you tanning goggles when you go for a tanning session. But, it’s always a good idea to have your own goggles(explained ahead).
So, it boils down to one thing- from where can I buy tanning goggles for eye protection.
Reasons to Get Your Own Tanning Goggles
Although it is mandatory to provide tanning goggles by the saloons, I always think that buying goggles your own is the safest idea. The saloons being shared spaces, the risk of contracting infections from unsanitized goggles is very high. You don’t want to have bacterial infections and conjunctivitis while getting a golden glow on your skin.
It is not necessary that goggles at salons are properly cleaned and maintained regularly by the salon staff.
Another reason to avoid using salons’ tanning goggles is the quality. They might not offer you the best quality goggles to prevent eye damage. There are chances that these goggles could be broken prior to your use and thus their effectiveness reduced.
So it is way easier, safe and hygienic to buy your own pair of goggles and use them whenever you go to the saloons. You could also keep an extra pair handy if you feel the one you’re having is less effective.
You can find more reasons to use tanning bed goggles here.
Where to buy Tanning Goggles
Tanning goggles are not a rare commodity. They are available in almost all the main retailing outlets and online stores. You can even get a pair of them from shops near you. The markets offer goggles of different shapes, size, and style.
If the price is your concern then buying online is your best option. Online shopping websites like eBay and Amazon offer the best deals for you. It’s another way to compare with the best products in the market.
Let me give you some tips to keep in mind when you buy your tanning bed goggles
Buying your tanning bed goggles online is a very good decision given that you get the best fit.
One major advantage of buying online is that it is very economical. There are various offers that you can avail online which makes it affordable. Also, many shopping websites provide easy return policy, so you can return back the goggles if it is not what you want. Some sites also provide refunds.
If you are ordering your tanning goggles off the internet, then make sure you read the size descriptions. They are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. The difficult task here is to choose the one that fits perfectly for you.
Unfit goggles will not suit its purpose of protecting the eye. And it is not necessary that the first one you buy might be the perfect fit. Buying off the internet has these risks.
Also, make sure that you read the product descriptions and also customer reviews. The descriptions give us some idea about the size, shape and also about FDA approval status.
The customer reviews are very helpful as they give us the advantages and disadvantages of that product. It’s a golden chance to read some of the honest reviews about these products. Reviews will also help you decide whether the money you’re investing is worth or not.
Buying Tanning Goggles near You- the Salons
The obvious advantage of buying tanning goggles from salons is that you can try them on before purchasing.
Salons should be your perfect place to get tanning bed goggles if you’re planning to buy it offline. You can go to the salons where you get your tanning done and they might have some good products that are easy on the eyes.
The supermarkets around you is another option to get these eye protection. Just like online stores, supermarkets can give you good discounts.
The most important thing you might want to keep in mind is the purpose of the purchase. Hence ensure that you choose goggles that fit you properly.
How Much are Tanning Goggles?
I don’t think that price will never be a concern for anyone looking for tanning eyewear. It won’t cost you more than $50. But, if you’re not an avid tanning bed user, I will not suggest you get high-quality goggles. You can opt for standard tanning eye protection which will cost you far less than the top-rated ones.
It is not always true that the quality comes with a price. The shopping websites, as well as the stores, provide a variety of affordable and economic eye-ware for tanning. Not only are they economic but also comfortable.
But again the best bet is to buy them online since you get packs of goggles at a very good price. There is no harm in having an extra pair. We never know of the emergencies. They are available in a price ranging from as cheap as $3 to as expensive as $50.
The price varies according to the product descriptions and their effectiveness. The disposable, one-time use is the most pricy of all.
But again if you are not a regular tanner then there is no reason to buy expensive ones. As long as it gives you the coverage, protection and the fit that you require, there is nothing else that matters more.
I hope that we have given a general overview of everything you need to know about buying tanning bed goggles.
You should always keep it sure that you are comfortable with the size, shape and the structure of the goggle you’re buying. The last thing you need is an eye infection after going through the whole process of what was and how to buy your perfect goggle.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing that smile on your face after having a wonderful tanning session.
