why do people fake tan so much that they turn orange?

i think dark tanned skin is gross to begin with, if god wanted u to have dark skin he would of gave it to you. i see tanned skin as "diseased" skin considering that eventually they will get cancer and have nasty wrinkles and age spots, and look 30 yrs older than they actually are. the thing that gets me is those who tan so much they look orange or those who are so dark they look like apes. i get that beauty is in the eye beholder stuff, but really do some ppl look in the mirror and see how ridiculous they look?
my sis and law works at the max fitness competitions as a massage therapist and she posted pics of all those funny looking people, its disgusting and amusing at the same time

  • The people that are Orange are getting the "spray" or self tanners done. You don't get orange from SUN bathing.

    With that said, I don't get it either. Every one makes fun of me because I'm white (I "glow" when I go outside LOL). I don't have any desire to sit/lay in the sun to be/look "perfect". Now my hubby on the other hand loves to be in the sun and get tanned. I say, whatever floats your boat LOL.

  • I refer to my ex-SIL as the oompa loompa. Nobody should be orange, people under 5' should especially not be orange. What's sad is her (very embarrassed) teenage daughters even tell her not to and she ignores them.

  • The question should be "Why do people FAKE TAN?"

  • Some people like looking orange and fake. My sister's work friend is orange and she boasts about it. She puts fake tan on every night so she can orange.
