  • A little, but I don't try to get tan, it just happens.

  • HAHA I live in Arizona were you can get a tan just walking to your car! But I would never pay for one, and I don't think it is good for your skin.

  • I do not purposely lay out in the sun. I burn very easily. Tanning is not good for you anyways. It ages you and getting skin cancer is nothing I want.  I will stay pale, thank you.

  • Yes...I never burn, always tan.

  • No. I embrace my paleness since I burn too easily; just not worth it. I do get a payoff, of sorts, though - I'm nearing 50 and am pretty much wrinkle free, which I totally attribute to protecting myself from the sun.

  • I only get what sun can get through my SPF 50 sunscreen,and I am usually under an umbrella at the beach. I'd rather not have a bunch of yucky sunspots and wrinkles.

  • A little bit. Not sure how though, I put sunscreen on if I know I'm going to be outside for more than 5 minutes, and I reapply it twice as often as the bottle says. I would never do the tanning bed/laying out thing. I don't get how some women will fry their skin, turn into a lobster w/a painful burn just so it will turn into a nice tan. I couldn't do the whole "baking in a coffin" thing myself. :-)
