Skin Type 5

Skin Type V

A Skin Type V has brownish skin that darkens when exposed to sunlight. They rarely sunburn and tan very easily.


Although a Skin Type V will tan very easily, there is still a chance of overexposure. The CEO at your local Fabutan tanning salon will determine an exposure schedule that will help a Skin Type V achieve the color that they want. A Skin Type V will likely have a first sun bed session of approximately 15 minutes long.

Similar to Skin Type IV, a Skin Type V in most cases is not able to absorb UVB at a high enough degree in North America to maintain a healthy Vitamin D blood level. Due to their skin's natural ability to withstand UV light, it is likely that their body 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.
