Q: Which type of tan is safe?

A: The only safe tan comes out of a bottle!!
Tips: Before you apply avoid tight elastic marks on your skin. Put Vaseline on palms, soles, elbows and any dry areas. Wear disposable gloves to apply
After application wear loose black clothing for the first few hours.
Alternatively have a friend spray you or visit a salon with a professional tan artist who can create a contour effect.
