  • I go tanning cause I live in hell and can't tan outside for most of the year. And yes, I'm fairly certain that I will get skin cancer from it. My grandpa is undergoing radiation for skin cancer when he goes home. I know all of this, but it keeps me happy and feeling good and off of anti depressants. I also really like the way that I look when I am tan. So yeah, I'm there with you!

  • If I could tan I would, but I burn!

  • I use too, but then I had children and I started to worry. So now we all use sun screen.

  • I only get spray tans and lather the lotion in the real sun. My mom has already had skin cancer, look into Mystic tanning. Yes the first day, before your first shower, some parts are dark....scrub those areas good and then for about the next two weeks, you will have a great glow, its only about 25 dollars in most areas,,,,and SO worth it!

  • No, I don't tan anyway. All I would accomplish is a burn, peel, and back to white. The way I figure it God made me this color so that's fine.
