I recommend fake and bake, and when I do my favorite is the California Tan Sunless AutoBronzer. Unfortunately this machine is very hard to find. Most places use mystic tan. Here are the reason’s why I prefer the AutoBronzer. 1)it is an open air style machine. You are not enclosed in any sort of capsule, thus making it a claustrophobic free experience. 2) It has a dryer. When the spraying is done you turn around and face a 7 ft (ish) tall drying tower. It blows warm air at you, drying the solution to your body. Therefor no need for that after spray pat down, and less of the post spray tan stained clothes. 3) Great color and coverage. You choose your level 1-3 based on your height. you move around as the voice commands tell you to, and there you go, perfect coverage. It easily and naturally fades away, if only we could say the same about the cast from the Jersey shore….
