Tanning Troubles: To tan, or not to tan? (24 posts)
I have pale skin and I'd really like to have a bit of colour as I'm sure many of us would agree that even a subtle tan makes everyone look radiant + healthy. I have spray tanned in the past and I love the healthy glow I get, yet a week later when the tan fades away so does my confidence :(. I've thought about just tanning in the sun as it's a lot easier, cheaper and less messy, however I worry about premature ageing & skin cancer. I've also considered going to a solarium, as I've seen so many of my friends who have that AMAZING-I've-just-been-to-the-bahamas-tan, but I can't help but worry about the risks as solarium tanning is said to have horrible consequences. So now I have no idea what to do, I would love to keep spray tanning weekly but it's very costly and a nuisance.
I was wondering if any primpers are in the same situation as me? How do you maintain your faux glow? If you are a frequent visitor of the solarium or you regularly sun tan, are you worried about the potential risks/health problems?
