Tanning doesn't have to mean sacrificing your health. With all of the new self-tanners and spray tans they have on the market, it's really easy to create a natural-looking tan in your own bathroom or at a salon. You just have to exfoliate your skin beforehand and use high-quality tanners. Most of them would turn into orange in the past but not anymore.

Other fair women that many find attractive. I would not have found any one of these actresses attractive when I was younger but I have definately changed my attitude since then.

But why do that when you can soak up sunshine and enjoy the summer warmth . I am not saying that you should lay down in bright incinerating sunlight, but just getting out there and doing physical activity in the summer helps many break out a natural sun kissed tan. I can assure you that just by exposing yourself to sunlight while doing physical activity, you are not going to get leathery skin and suffer from skin cancer. Reserve spray tans for winter if you want to stay tan and enjoy what nature provides you in the summer.

This! A foundation a few shades darker works too especially in places where lighting is bad like in clubs.

I agree. The only tan worth showing off is the one you were born with!

I look like the girl in the first pic but I don't see what the big deal is. But I only go with extremely dark make up at night. Like that girl I have light eyes.

IMO its not a big deal, every other girl either has fake boobs, eyelashes, butt, so a mismatched foundation I can wash off at the end of the night is no big deal.

Besides, IMO I CAN pass for racially ambigous so its possible people think I have naturally dark skin becauae although I'm Nicole Kidman light I have kinky hair like


Sh*t People Say To Girls With Curly Hair - YouTube
when its not straightened

So with my Make up a couple shades darker & straightened hair I CAN look exxotical.


If I'm going without a tan, in my Nicole Kidman paleness & light eyes I look like a straight up white girl.

There is no such thing as a 'healthy' tan. Your skin gets darker because it's damaged by the sun. So even a 'sun kissed' tan can create problems down the road.

There is also no such thing as a 'base tan'. Just as an FYI.
