When I was in high school in SoCal, I loved going to the beach, preferably, Newport Beach or HB. My friends and I would go all day and stay all night... As a teenager, I also worked at a tanning salon in Hacienda Heights for one of my Mom's friends. I loved working there, taking appts, cleaning the beds and getting tans... So, do you like looking tan?

When I was a teenager it was important to me but now that I am an adult and a mom I really dont care any more. It is not important to me.

Okay, but do you use the faux tan at home? I use this for my body and face. In the summer, I really want to look my best because my legs and arms are not covered. In the winter, I could care less.

Nope I dont do anythingto make myself tan at all. I dont have the desire or the time. I am a full time stay home mom everything I do I do for my kids. I dont get time for myself.

I too am a stay at home mommy to my twin girls, but, I will not deny myself time to make myself feel good and look good. Plus, I ususally do this self tanning stuff when my babies are down for the evening.

I like looking tan but not too much because to dark it makes me look awful .I like medium tan and i am so easy to get tan while under the sun.

Yes, tanning, in the sun, can make you look old before your time, while lotion tanning is a gradual tan that I have come to like much better.

Ys but I am afraid of skin cancer. I am thinking about trying one of those new body moistureizers and that are supposed to gradually give you a tan.

Oh yes, I use those and love them. I use one from Bath and Body works and one from Neutregena? I love them..they are so much better than getting burned..

Considering that I love being out in the sun during the summer, I love looking tan. I spend countless hours at the beach every summer. This is how I get my suntan. I don't go to tanning salons or use suntan lotion. I hate being pale all year long. I think being pale is annoying and it doesn't look good on me. I must watch out that I don't get burned.

I like having a tan, but not a dark, deep tan. That kind looks un-natural. I used to burn very badly as a kid and teenager whenever I spent time in the sun. But, as I've grown older, I burn less, and my skin turns a golden color, but not dark.
