Skin Type 6

Skin Type VI

A Skin Type VI has dark brown or black skin that will still darken when exposed to intense sunlight. They almost never sunburn.


Considering a Skin Type VI is at very little risk of overexposure, their first sun bed session will likely be between 15-18 minutes.

In most cases, a Skin Type VI will will absorb very little UVB in North America, and will require a Vitamin D supplement in order to maintain adequate levels of Vitamin D.

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