    Orange is not a good color for me, it clashes w/ my purple zoot suit.

    On some people a little tan does look good. However tanning increases your risk of skin cancer. Be happy with healthy skin and don't worry about the shade of tan.

    I like having color to my otherwise pasty skin. I buy tinted moisturizer.

    It is very aging, it hastens the aging of the skin.

    It also increases your risk of skin cancer. Exposure to sun rays are cumulative. The sun burn of 25 years ago stays with you all you life.

    Yup, when my wife baked on the beach where see lived as a teenager has come back to haunt her. 40 years later she has had 2 basil cells and a melonoma removed.
  • kudabux Bob DiN 2012/05/07 14:17:37

    I hope she recovers. I used to bake, too, and now I have these little sun spots developing. I have to keep an eye on them.

    Thanks to me I took her to my dermetolist and it was all caught early, the melonoma was pre melonoma. So far so good, but she has to be on top of anything new popping up. I suggest you do keep and eye on those spots, as well as anything not healing quickly. I noticed a little raw red spot on her smaller than the head of a pin she had for over a month. I was a Basil Cell.

    It depends. Some people need the sun to bring the color they naturally have. Some, however, should stay away from tanning boths altogether.

    Me personally, yes. My skin isn't too pale, but during the summer when I NATURALLY tan, my skin looks nicer and brings out my eyes. Plus I paint my nails vivid colors so that usually looks nice, too. :P

    For me personally? Yes. I used to be really pale because I have fair skin. My mom never let me out in the sun without wearing tons of sunscreen and we always went to the beach or the pool in the late afternoon when the sun was setting. The funny thing was nobody at my school in NJ cared about my pale skin. Or at least they never said anything to my face. When I moved to MD in the 7th grade, everyone in my class made fun of me. It was a combination of my scoliosis (which worsened in the 7th grade), the fact that I wasn't athletic, that I got good grades, and my pale skin that led some idiot classmates to say that I never left the house and stayed indoors all the time. So not true. I tried not to let their comments bother me, but truthfully they did. So, I started spending more time outdoors in the summer. I still wear sunscreen (SPF 50), but I don't constantly put it on like my mother did when I was little. She used to reapply every hour. There were times I slipped up, and got a sunburn but it was very rare. I don't actively tan, either, like going to a tanning salon. It just happens from being outside. So now I have a light tan. My mom sometimes makes comments lamenting the fact that I'm not really fair skinned anymore. But as long as I'm really careful and always put on sunscreen and wear a hat, I think I'll be fine.

    I'm brown.

    If I were to tan, I would be actually black.

    Besides the only thing tanning does is damage your skin. Be happy with your skin pigment (unless you have really uneven skin)

    I used to think it did and I was a bit jealous when I saw my friends all tanned and healthy looking while I had to keep covered up because of my light skin. But now, many years later, my skin looks pretty darn good compared to some of my friends who have kind of a
    "weathered" look now plus very noticeable wrinkles. I've been lucky in that regard.

    UV rays age the skin, but a little sun provides essential Vitamin D. Everything in moderation.

    I always think that women look better with whatever pigmentation God gave them. If you're naturally tan, then be tan. If you're naturally porcelain, then be porcelain. Personally, I prefer the lighter complexion anyway.
