I usually exfoliate before i go then apply a tanning accelerator(you can buy them from the tanning salon) then just moisturise as usual afterwards.

Some tanning accelerator creams don't contain a sunscreen though.

My fave moisturiser is L'Oreal Nutrilift for dry skin, it smells lovely, keeps you moisturised all day, isn't greasy and dries in quickly :D L'Oreal body expertise exfotonic is the best exfoliator i've used too :D

With all the recent skin cancer scares I wouldn't recommend going at all. That said, my wife uses the sunbed all the time. Don't have too long sessions and get well oiled up. Keep oiling up after it.

I would not recommend using sunbeds, not only do they increase your risk of getting skin cancer but they also age your skin alot quicker!!
the only safe tan is a fake tan! I would recommend the ambre solair spray on tan, it gives you an all over even looking tan :D
