It is super frightening and very tacky and tasteless. Not that anyone asked me, oh wait 😉 Yes you did!! yippee!

I’m a Celtic kid. That means auburn hair, white skin and freckles. I don’t tan, I get pinkish toned and look like I’ve run through a cinnamon shower.

Those pics of the sooo obviously ‘self tanner’holics’ crack me up.
I saw so many leathery women in Vegas it was icky. I’m all about the 50 SPF for me and 70 for the kids! I will not look like a purse when I’m 50 thankyouverymuch

Ha…I thought those two guys in the second picture were mannequins for a minute. That’s just wrong on so many levels.

That being said, I’ve done my fair share of excessive tanning (among many things) in the past, but now my (and The Who, I guess) motto is, “too much of anything, is too much for me.”

But for those people and celebs, “too much” ain’t in their vocabularies.

I don’t tan anymore. When I was a kid (lo, those many years ago) I used to get brown as a nut. But after a major sunburn almost got me court-martialed (sp?) I got used to staying covered when in the sun. Now, my legs are SO WHITE, my wife (Mexican-Irish) collapses in laughter when she sees me naked. And if she doesn’t cut that out, she may see me naked far less often – because no man likes to be laughed at when he’s naked. I’m just sayin’.

The orange is annoying but I find the ‘leather look’ so much worse!

Yeah, I’ve never understood the world’s fascination with tanning…and I certainly don’t get the orange spray on tan crap.

All I can say is people are idiots. It will eventually come around to bite them in their asses.

I am milky white with red hair and couldn’t catch a tan if someone through it to me and proud of it. I wear 50spf to avoid looking like a leather wallet when I get older.

As much as I would love to have darker skin, I try to stay out of the tanning beds and away from the orange sauce. It’s a lot of work and makes you itchy anyhow. 🙂 Not to mention, not so great for me.

Orange ppl look funny.

As someone who had her first skin cancer at 18 (basal cell carcinoma) and a melinoma at 29, I’m with you on the pale is the way to go… Not only that, but I preach the 30+ sunscreen thing, too. It may look “healthy” now to be all tan, but in 20 years, I’ll look the same age as some of the 18 year-olds who tanning bed it.
