Okay, so I need some help determining how many minutes I should do in a standard tanning bed. But first, I know this is a bad thing to do so please don't lecture me about skin cancer. I've already tried alternatives and they aren't working. I'm a bridesmaid in 3 weeks (October 11) and I'm wearing a strapless dress, BUT I have bathing suit lines-halter top and like a bra top ones so I need to fade those out so I don't look weird. (Plus, a good tan never made anyone look fatter, eh? haha!)
So I just bought 13 sessions in a standard bed that just got new bulbs, and got a "free" session in the next bed up. The wedding is Oct. 11, and I'm going home Oct. 9. For this week and next week, my plan is to go Sunday and Thursdays. and then the last week, I'm not sure about. Either I'll go on Thursday on my way out of town or go Wednesday. And I have to use the "free" session in 30 days so maybe I'll do that on my last one before the wedding? Or is that not a good idea (burns, etc)?
Anyways, today I did 6 minutes since it was my first time. I know it will depend on how my skin looks tomorrow and Tuesday, but does anyone have advice on how to up my minutes or what is the norm? Should I do 6,7, or 8 minutes next time?
I'm trying to fill this schedule in:
Sunday: 6 minutes
Thursday: 6,7,or, 8?
Wednesday or Thursday?: next bed up?
And do you think that maybe I could add a couple more times and where?
Thanks for any advice!
