    1) im always afraid there not sanitized2) dont know anything about those lotions, but always use indoor tanning lotion because moisturized skin tans better3) you can kinda tell by the max time! low end beds have max time of 15 or 20 min! super beds have max of 15 or 12! stand ups are 12 (i think)! also the shape! the low end beds are usually flat to lay on while the higher up ones are curved! there is this awesome one at the salon i go to that has a mattress! (but that one is $35 a session)4) i think your eyes will become dry! MAKE SURE you wear eye protection whether you have contacts in or not!5) they just moisturize! there is no SPF! some are tingly and have bronzers too!6) yes the UV (UVB i think) kills bacteria7) you should see a noticeable difference in about a week or so! it will fade quickly! if you buy the expensive beds, you can maintain your tan by going once or twice a week after you establish a base tan!8) i went everyday for a few weeks just to get a base! would i go everyday and bake for 20 minutes?? definitely not! i was only doing maybe 10 or 12 minutes each time9) not sure! i figure that if im going to tan, i should do it indoors where i can control the intensity/length of exposure to the UV rays! if you tan outdoors you cant control that! i always burn when i go outside in the summer
