  • Do you consider a tanning bed as a fake tan? I don't because it uses the same technology as the sun only more concentrated.

    As for fake, I would say that is a spray on or lotion that stains the skin.

    I never fake tan and we do have a tanning bed.

  • I wear SPF 50+, I do not tan. I don't want to risk skin cancer later on in life.

  • I use sunscreen every day. I don't tan and will not put my body into a cancer causing tanning bed and have skin sensitivity issues so will not do a spray on tan.

  • Neither, I prefer my own ivory color. Like CraftingMama, I too wear SPF 50. I have a higher risk of skin cancer than most people, so I'm not willing to risk it.

  • I don't make it a point to "tan" real or fake... I work in our yard, and I'm in our pool all Summer so I do end up with some color. I wear sunscreen everyday, and I don't know if you've noticed but you will get a nice even "tan" that way even with sunscreen on. I want good skin when I'm old, my father had a patch of skin cancer on his forehead, and he was a farmer all his life. It can happen to anyone.

    So neither.
