so I tan 2 to 3 times a week I have to say I love it the lotion the warm skin and being tan all year.

What's your feeling on the subject

I'm not a fan. I'm naturally pale, and I wear sunscreen whenever I go outside. I also have a family history of skin cancer.

Love tanning! Especially in the winter months. Even though I am HIspanic and really don't need it! I haven't went in a long time. But I think its great! :)

I would probably look cooler naked if I tanned and shaved my body hair, but I'm not going there on either.

total fan!! I love to use coconut lotion and my skin feels and smells wonderful!!! I go about 2-3 times a week only for 10 min. I have nice pretty tan. :)

I don't tan on purpose.....summer time by the pool having fun or working at my dads lil ranch....but, then that becomes the "redneck" tan

I'm glow in the dark. No. I don't tan. I prefer not to have holes in my face from skin cancer removal. I already had a hole in my back from that, thanks.

I used to tan every day.. Horrible idea.

i dont do tanning beds. i dont want several hours of uv in a few minutes but i do love to tan the old fashioned way.

i love the way it feels and i love the way my skin looks.

I just do the spray tan at a salon if I am going on holiday. Used to go to tanning tbeds/cubicles years ago, but not to keen on getting skin cancer, so avoid them like the plague now!

Also, there are so many self tan sprays n lotions these days to use at home.

I own a tanning bed and normally tan all year round too. But I know a lot more people getting skin cancer scares so I quit tanning about 2 months ago and am thinking about selling my tanning bed. I'm like you though, I love the warm on my back especially after a workout. I think it helps me with my mood in the Winter time too. It's a tough decision.

The only sun my body sees is in the summer. All other times of the year, I am as white as a ghost.
October 4, 2012 1:14 PM
I'm pretty sure I am the whitest person in the metro Phoenix area.

Yeah, not down with tanning. I'm 42 so I have to keep my skin as awesome-looking as possible, and the fact that tanning beds are really bad for you is enough of a reason to avoid them.

I think going to a salon is boring, expensive and stupid. I did it once with a friend when I was a teenager, but I could have died from boredom! I would rather sit in the sun with a good book.

Love a tan body!!! I usually use spray tans though... Its better for your skin... But this is strictly my opinion...

I feel like... we just had this topic yesterday.

I don't trust tanning beds. The human skin knows a specific ratio of UVA/UVB rays and from what I understand you don't get that from tanning beds.

The sun is healthy and important for life and there is nothing wrong with spending time out in it - why lay in a bed when you have that huge outdoors. With a little help from the sun our body turns cholesterol into vitamin D (yes "evil" cholesterol that our body actually produces a lot of. We don't absorb most of the cholesterol we eat - not even the same cholesterol).

People protect their skin from the sun by lathering it up with cancer causing chemicals in sunblock. Makes a lot of sense.
The sun doesn't cause skin cancer. If it did then everyone would get skin cancer. It's an underlying problem.

Since I found Primal Blueprint I rarely get red anymore. I tan nicely. The tan lasts longer. And if I do get some redness it disappears fast. And I have spent an entire day in the sun with no protection.
I have pale skin (legs are ghost white in the winter), lots of freckles. lots of pink in my skin. My mother is scottish. So many things have changed since Primal Blueprint

I tan regularly. I stay well groomed. I like clothes, cars, shoes, wallets, belts, and watches. #nolie.

No shame either.

Cancer doesn't sound awesome. So... f*ck that. I do wish I had a TAD more color as I look almost sickly pale... but that isn't worth me baking under lights known to cause cancer. :)
