Methods: Six databases were searched from inception to March 2022 for qualitative-studies that explored adults’ experiences of using indoor-tanning devices. Seventeen studies met the inclusion criteria and both thematic and framework-analysis were used. A narrative evidence synthesis was used to collate findings from each primary study.
Results: Five of the six COM factors were found in the data – engaging in tanning and quitting tanning were influenced by reflective and automatic-motivation, social and physical-opportunity and psychological-capability. Cross cutting themes were: aesthetic-values, physical-effects, psychological-effects, risk-perceptions, acceptable-alternatives and availability/accessibility.
Conclusions: This comprehensive explanation for the practice of indoor-tanning provides the basis for development of complex interventions to reduce the harm caused by indoor-tanning. Effective interventions should address aesthetic appeal, perceived benefits, risks, cultural-norms, availability/accessibility of salons, acceptability of alternatives and breaking habits.
