    Obviously, the tanning booth is going to give you the best effect. Lotions can be messy and leave uneven or streaky areas. Tanning booths are also VERY bad for your skin, often causing later skin cancers and premature aging. Better than both of these is the spray-on tan that you can have professionally applied at many salons or tanning centers. The effect is better than an at-home lotion, lasts longer without the daily need to reapply, and is not dangerous to your skin or health. Call your local salons for availability and price (usually around 30 dollars in my area).

    Tanning lotion!! It is faster and safer. Do not go to the tanning bed it can cause skin cancer and you will have tons of wrinkles when you get older!!!!

    Get the spray tan, it will not cause skin cancer like the tanning bed will. Believe me I would rather spray and avoid the pain later in life with skin cancer.

    Tanning booths carry a risk of skin cancer. If you must have that tan, please use the lotion.
