    No real need for a tanning lotion unless it has a bit of a bronzer to help speed things up. Since it's a short duration you shouldn't need any spf in the lotion. If you're burning then don't go for so long.

    I find some fans work better on the beds than others so some days it's great and only a bit of sweat and then others i'm coming out pretty drippy.

    I dont use lotions...But make sure to wipe down the bed before and after, easy way to catch something nasty.

    start off slow increase by 2 min increments, cover your eyes/face and any other parts where a burn wouldnt be pleasant...

    Yeah, they sanitize the beds at mine too. I have eye protection and I usually wear them but not always.

    Find a place with a good stand up bed. The place I go to has a stand up, and you're standing on a big grate with a huge fan underneath and a exhaust at the top. In the middle of the summer I go in there and don't sweat one bit.

    +1 for standing beds. My Gold's has awesome ones. I don't use any lotions but I always wear eye protection.

    The few times i do it, it's Mystic Tan. Although it does make you smell funny....
