Sunbathing as a teen?  

I remember that my cousins used to slick themselves up with baby oil and lay on the deck of their house (above the pool) and just bake in the sun.  I only remember doing that once myself as I am very fair and didn't tan, but burnt to a crisp.

Did you ever do anything like that when you were young?

I didn't. I never really cared to be tan.

No I didn't but when I lived in TX I went boating almost everyday and was more tanned than I ever have been in my life.  I tan very quickly and easily also.

Yep, did that a few times in my teens.  My bestie used to use cooking oil and foil to get tan.  I am surprised she hasn't developed skin cancer because of it.  She used to burn her face so bad.

Yikes!  I hope she's watching her skin as she is getting older.

I might've done it once or twice, but I never really needed to purposefully do it since my skin is tan naturally.  Now that I'm way older, I need to be careful about the sun (though I haven't been this summer--oops!).

I never just laid out to tan. Just spent all summer outside running around. I tanned easily. My mom can be outside for 10min and she is a lobster.
