When the skin comes in to contact with sunlight it naturally produces vitamin D. It has been recommended by Dr Michael Holick (Professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics) the the skin requires 5 minutes of unprotected UV exposure, 2 to 3 times a week, for body to produce the required levels of Vitamin D, depending on skin type.

Skin Types


Before sunbathing OR sun-bedding, it’s vital to determine your skin type. There are six distinct skin types; each reacts differently to sun exposure.
The Fitzpatrick Scale  is a numerical classification schema for human skin color. It was developed in 1975 by Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, a Harvard dermatologist, as a way to estimate the response of different types of skin to ultraviolet (UV) light.

Skin Type I

Usually bright white or pale skin, blue or green eyes, red hair and many freckles. This skin type always burns outdoors, never tans. NOTE: A person who is a true Skin Type I should avoid tanning indoors and outdoors.

Skin Type III

Light brown skin, brown eyes and hair. This skin type sometimes burns outdoors but always tans.

Skin Type V

Brown skin, dark brown hair and eyes. This skin type rarely burns outdoors and tans easily.

Skin Type II

Light Beige skin, blue or green eyes; blonde or light brown hair and maybe freckles. This skin type has a strong tendency to sunburn outdoors, but sometimes tans.

Skin Type IV

Light brown or olive skin, dark brown eyes and hair. This skin type sometimes burns outdoors and tans readily.

Skin Type VI

Black skin, black-brown eyes and hair. This skin type rarely sunburns outdoors.
