I am happy with my natural skin color. If anything, I'm out in the sun for short periods of time without protection. That mostly just brings my freckles out though.

Tanning beds are so useless. It's like a human toaster, why don't women stop and think hey this could be detrimental to my health and it always looks fake anyways. And as far as lotions they make you orange that dye can't be good for your skin! Just go to the beach and be safe don't camp out all day couple of hours should be sufficient. Tanning is a gradual process, so don't try and rush it.

yes, everyone should be well aware that there's no such thing as safe tanning (this goes both for the sun and, even worse, the tanning beds). just one correction: SPF 15 is maybe enough for winter sun (not in the mountains though), whereas in the summer try at least 30 or 50 instead.

i actually don't care so much about tanning, I think pale skin has its own beauty

fully agree - if you're pale, why not stay that way? a couple of years ago I accidentally got some tan on my face and I didn't like it one bit, I looked older and weird, not to mention the harm it does to the skin :S

I love this :) Yeah I stopped regular sun tanning, so I do self tanner. Don't overdo it though haha. I was trying to tan my legs before prom after months of hiding in the winter and I turned orange briefly (mind you, I'm of Hispanic descent, so I'm kinda tan). I have to exfoliate it quite a bit before I was generally brown haha.
