Hi Robin, well even though I know it's not good for me and causes wrinkles and possibly skin cancer, I always start my sprint/summer with one month of tanning. Usually that's all I need to get going. It also makes me feel good due to the extra Vitamin D. I don't know if that's what it is or what but I've read several articles that say tanning makes you feel good because the light does something to you. They say it can be addicting. Personally I've never felt it be addicting for me, I go for one month every year and that's all.
The new sprays, etc. they have out are supposed to work really well now but I am always paranoid of streaks, etc. I never feel "tan" unless I hit the tanning bed.
That's not to say that it's for everyone, because it does have it's risks, but that's what I do.
