    so i wanna hit up the tanning beds. i spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer and usually will burn a bit at first then start to tan so i wanna go to the beds and start a base early.

    i have never gone before so what beds do i use, how long, what kind of sunscreen or oil, and how often?

    The tanning beds I use... you're limited to 9 min for the first time.
    Since I'm concerned about aging too... I usually have a towel over my face for half the session.
    While its not always possible for others, I try to be the first to use the bed for the day. Just paranoid I guess but I've heard of people getting ringworm.

    Also when using the bed try and go to each side for a few minutes so that you don't get these two marks on your back... if you care.

    start off with half of the max time, a few times a week. And you have to get indoor tanning lotion, you can't use outdoor stuff in the tanning bed.

    get a bronzer for the bed, its kinda expensive but helps. the first time i went 10min and got a little red. put a towel under your butt and a sock on your package if you go naked and a towel on your face about halfway through. my face always gets red if i dont

    Get a bronzer and accelerator. If you go only put a sock over your package and only use it when you are facing down. When you get to go for around 10min do half and half, half on your back, half on your stomach. You don't need a towel that will leave a white spot on your ass. You're not going to get ringworm Lol, you guys worry too much.

    i dont want to risk getting a burn on my package dude, think about how much that would hurt

    yeah you dont need the towel on your ass but its better than getting burnt and not being able to sit down.

    also, raise your arms for some time in there too so you wont have white arm pits

    We have stand up ones too but I found the beds stronger.

    And I've also never covered my ass or package. Of course I've rarely ever burned.

    darque sunless tan spray on booth. only tan I've ever had. looked nice and didn't leave me wondering about whether my skin would be leathery in 10 years or when my next bout of cancer would surface.

    I try to stay away from the standard tanning beds and go to the upgraded style ones with the facial lights. I find that is more pleasing on my face and I don't burn as bad.

    As far as lotion I am using Sex Pot which is a bronzing one and I have always used GELEE which is by Australian Gold and really liked that. When you are getting tanning lotion find out if it has tingle in it. I avoid that stuff because it really hurts after awhile and then it burns me really bad. A lot of places though will offer samples so you can try out a couple before you find one you really like.

    As far as time. What is your skin tone like? Try 6 minutes the first time and then if that is ok bump it up by 3-4 minutes at a time just to get a good feel.

    My ex use to use it all the time. As long as you don't get wet for like 4 hours afterwards it won't run but it does stain you clothes. Can't count the amount of bras she ruined because of that. Plus it does have a different smell and a weird little dance you have to do in there but it is quick and painless.
