I am natural but would love to go fake bake but not all the time because I find those that do it too much look very unhealthy and older then they really are and that is for the sun too. Which one do you do or prefer? -Lora

Strange you ask. I usually don't go to the tanning bed, but I've gone twice this week and going tomorrow, since I am headed to Florida to get the natural sun this weekend.

I'm enjoying my vacation here in Florida. Was able to get to my sister's here in Florida, so checking my mail and MyLot for a little bit.

For me I always wouild chose fake, but not a tanning bed, I have fair skin and always get burned real bad. I do not mind my creamy white complexion, I find it goes well with my dark hair =) I am not really into the whole sun thing lol! I am scared of skin cancer too, and I know the most prone to get it are those with fair skin. I opt for sunscreen myself =)

I burn so very easy too hun and I hate it, I also have dark hair. Yes, sitting in the sun is just so very boring, unless I am swimming, but to just sit there it's like zzzzzzzzz..lol Thanks for the comment. -Lora

I definitely like getting a natural tan. I just put on some sunscreen and sit outside for awhile. I'm VERY pale, so even having on spf 30 I still get a decent tan. I could never go to a tanning bed though, I mean leathery skin is just not my taste, and fake baking does look well... fake at times.

OMG I bet I am more pale then you..lol.I have been getting picked on about how pale I am since I was little and I am tired of it but at least I am being safe. Fake bake is ok at times. Thanks for your comment, -Lora

I do both, but always hearing so many negative things about skin cancer makes me second guess if it is really worth it. I do think people who go tanning, whether natural or not, tend to age quicker and have the more leather-skin type look to them. I am still on the younger side so this isn't a problem for me yet, but you can definetly start to see the effects it has on older people.
