Do you feel better with a tan or pale?

I always feel better tan. I just don't want skin cancer and the self tanning lotions are kooky.

  • I feel the same way. I am very fair so skin cancer is a huge fear of mine. I get checked by the derm every year! There are a few faux tans I like. VersaSpa/Mystic tan is pretty good but more expensive since you have to go into a tanning salon that has those spray booths. Xen-Tan is another good product you can buy online. In my opinion those are the best fake tans I've found.

    At the end of the day, I like how I look pale too, summer just give me a huge tan itch!

  • I feeel better Tan. You won't get skin cancer if you tan right. It's burning that really does the skin damage. Although, tanning beds are not so great. I do tanning beds sometimes, but mostly get my tan from the sun. You will definitely wrinkle earlier though if you're always tan when young. I would suggest LOTS of lotion if you're always tanning.

  • Pale... I slather on the strongest lotion I can to prevent any kind of color. I've always been one of those people that thinks about the sun and tans (being Italian) but I hate the look of a tan. So I do everything I can to prevent it.

  • Tan. I always start off the year with sunscreen, then over the summer I usually just put it on my nose. My tan warms up just a little at a time, because I really don't lay out. I would never fake tan.

  • Pale. I went to the beach for a week and tanned through my 70 SPF and I don't look right.

  • I don't care either way. I've never set out to be tan. If I'm pale, so be it.
