Here's the magic tan tread

also if you want to use self tanner you have to exfoliate first, very important, it makes it less uneven. Also you should use it every 3 days for two weeks before and that will also make it less uneven.

I also think people are too paranoid about tanning naturally or in a tanning bed, if you don't have lots of dark spots or burn easily it can't be that bad as long as you don't do it too much.

Ack i hate tanning in beds, it gets soooo hot i cant stand it. Plus, 30 in a tanning bed=24 hours in the real sun. Lots of damage in little time!

I think your risk of getting cancer after 5 or 6 uses of a tanning bed are very slim.

I wouldnt risk tanning beds if i were you....cancer risk obviously and people i know who use it look really orange

I suggest fake tan, but apply it a few weeks before so you know what shade it is and you have extra time to even out the tan more

We have a tanning bed in our pool house and none of my family members have cancer.

Fake tanners on naturally pale skin look disgusting and dirty.

You could always go on a nice little vacation down south

im sure you all look older then you really are though, if not now give it a few years.

I dont think fake tanners on Fair skin look gross at all, thats basically the reason they were invented. If their put on even and well they look good.

actually quite the contrary. My mothers skin looks much better than most women her age.

As for me I think I still look young because I am young.

i hate solariums and tan beds, apart from the health reasons, they have a YELLOWish effect

twilight, i'd say try to catch some real sun and use a good tanning product,
there is nothing like a real sun blush

Uhhh...de-tanning?
I've had this tan since last July and I can't get rid of it! It's mainly on my legs but some of it's on my stomach and it's completely uneven. I wear skirts but I don't wear stomach-exposing anything and the tan is still slightly there. Is there a way to get rid of it besides covering up all the time?

I doubt there is, so can anyone reccomend a self-tanner? I have pale skin.

Other than staying out of the sun exfoliating and putting sunblock, I wonder if a whitening cream would work, but thats something to consult with a derma if it really is bothering you.

^ Yeah like SK-II or something should lighten your tan but it's meant for the face so it's going to be damn expensive to buy enough for your legs!
