um, please don't flame me for this........I am only sharing my personal experience.
I am on my third tanning session going to the Dominican next month. I am using the super duper tanning beds and did 6 min the first time and was ok and did 8 min the second time and got a little pink, did 7 min yesterday and am building up a base.
I doubt anyone will tell you it's ok to tan. I have taken many meds over my life and I have been on some that say on the presciption bottle to stay out of the sun and wear spf if going into the sun. Check all your meds and stuff.
