I just started tanning. I have red hair, bule eyes, but can still tan a bit. I have already been 3 times. I started 6 minutes then 7 and 7. I got a litttle pink after the first 7 but was pretty much gone the day after. I wanted to know what kind of lotion to get. My salon carries lots of Australian Gold products. Are they good? And I was also wondering is there any good ways to even out a tan. I am a sports guy. Thanks

Also, I know to take it slow with my skin, but when do you know when to go up in minutes?

well from your hair and eye color you are probably a skin type 2. which means you burn very easily. i would suggest going back to 5 minutes then every 3-4 sessions moving up a minute. i never tried an australian gold product but get samples and see how you like them. to even out a tan you should go in a stand up. remember tanning takes time and you dont want to burn yourself so be careful. and be sure to moisturize alot!!! and wear your eye protection

Even though the pinkness went away you still need to drop your time back down to 6 mins. and do that time for another 2 sessions before tryng 7 mins. again. Stay at the 1 minute increases for 3 sessions and as long as their is NO pinkness you can bump up. - I haven't used many AG products I agree with trying a couple of samples before buying a full bottle to make sure you like it.

You need to slowly increase your time. Drop it back to 6 min. for 2 more sessions, then go up to 7 for 2 or 3. AG has several good products, Idol is good and so is HOT. Both are just basic accelerators; no tingle or bronzers. But buy some samples to see which ones you like the best.
