Sun Beds (It’s a No! No!)

 "There's no such thing as a safe tan unless it comes in a bottle," tanning beds are more dangerous because some of them have a higher concentration of UVA rays. UVA penetrates deeper into the skin and we don't know what the longer-term results of that deeper penetration are. We do know that it ages the skin."

If you'd like the golden glow of a tan without exposure to damaging UV radiation, consider using a sunless tanning product. Avoid tanning beds, and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen whenever you're outdoors.

When using Spray tanning booths I would particularly make sure you are protected  from DHA exposure to the eyes, lips and mucous membranes as well as preventing the inhalation or ingestion of the spray.
