Skin Type 4

Skin Type IV

A Skin Type IV will almost never sunburn, and tan very easiliy.


Although a Skin Type IV will tan quite easily, they are still at risk of overexposure. The CEO at your local Fabutan tanning salon will help a Skin Type IV to determine an exposure schedule that will help achieve the color that they want. A Skin Type IV will likely have a first sun bed session between 12-15 minutes.

In most cases, a Skin Type IV is not able to absorb UVB at a high enough degree in North America to maintain a healthy Vitamin D blood level. Due to this skin type's natural ability to withstand UV light, it is likely your body will require a Vitamin D supplement in addition to following your sun bed exposure schedule in order to maintain adequate levels of Vitamin D.

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