Spray Tan or tanning bed

When getting a spray tan do you wear undies, the hair net and the foot covers? Or when using a tanning bed do you ALWAYS clean the bed after each use and clean it before you use it?

  • I always clean before and after. Also I prefer going in the morning asap so less people have went before me. I tried a cheap place once and got athlete's foot as an added bonus. Ach!

  • well seeing that it ups your chances of cancer about 50% from usual sun exposure seems the other things won't matter much. Plus which is worse orange skin or tan lines?

  • Uh, ever heard of skin cancer? Use a spray tan or tanning lotion. Do you want to look like a leather purse when you hit 40?

  • if you decide to go to a tanning salon, do it in moderation. a little bit of sun is actually good for you. we all need vitamin d & the sun (15-20 mins a day) is a good way to get it.

  • The couple times i've gotten a spray on tan i've always worn the foot cover and hair net. I always clean the bed after my tan and i always check to see if it needs it before hand.

  • I have never tried the spray tanning, I have been wanting to though. I prefer tanning bed. You can lay there and relax and fall asleep (I have many times).

  • I've tried spray tanning - both at home and at the tanning salon - ew. yuck, I had a few bad experiences.. and it was a big waste of money. I perfer the Tanning bed, ( i know i know shame shame).. but it relaxing..I take my ipod.. and I love the glow :)
    I clean it before and after.. even though the 'salon-tech' cleans it right before I walk in. I like going later in the afternoons - because the beds are already warmed up..
