If you are interested in getting a tan, but dont want the effects of skin damage that you are exposed to when you lay in the sun or go under a tanning bed's bulbs, a great alternative is to go to Innovation. They have a Mist-On Tanning system that is actually very moisturizing for your skin. It's very fast--about 60 seconds, Plus you are dark the same day. The prices are pretty decent here too. I highly recommend it.
