I decided last year to try out the mystic tans done at tanning salons. It is a safer alternative to laying out in the sun or tanning in a tanning bed. The spray tan consist of a bronzer, aloe vera, and DHA (a color additive approved by the FDA). The mystic tan Mystic tan offers three different levels of tan- slighlty dark, medium dark, and really dark.I am fair but do not burn super easy so I use the medium tan. You stand in a booth and this spray nozzle sprays you down. It is very fast and the spray is a little cool. After you get out of the booth you simply blot off any excess moisture and get dressed. I would recommend wearing loose clothes that you do not care if any of the spray mist happens to get on, this will stain. About 4 hours later you have a really nice tan. The first time I did this I was in Tampa, Florida. I was already a little tan from going to the beach but after using this I was really tan. It seemed to help me tan more easily and I seemed to keep my tan longer. The second time I tried this was in Arkansas in the winter. I just wanted a little color. I did get tan but it only lasted about a week, and I felt like I had wasted my money. I would recommend maybe doing the spray tan in the summer. One thing I did not like was that it left a build up around the beds of your fingernail and toenails. This eventually washed away in a day or two. You are supposed to apply a lotion just on your hands, feet, knees and elbows before getting in the booth to help prevent this, which did help everywhere else. Overall though I was happy doing this and will probably do this again next summer. This made me look golden and bronzy but by no means orange. I liked doing this better than putting sunless tanning lotion on myself.
