If you are someone who doesn’t want to forgo a tanned look, airbrush tanning may be a reasonably safe alternative to tanning beds but misting booths should probably be avoided. One extra consideration is not to get a quick “tan” before a special event. One woman on a forum remarked she made the mistake of having an airbrush tan done 3 days before her wedding. She felt it made her skin look “orangish” and she had difficulty washing the “tan” off over the following week because it had dried out her skin. It is probably best to try a few practice sessions before being immortalized in important photos with a less than the best result.
