Speaking for myself as a female, I get some sun (in Florida) every day while riding my bicycle. I am of northern Spanish heritage and am very fair naturally, but brunette with brown eyes. I never burn because I don't stay out long and always have a light base tan. This suits my coloring nicely and is the look I like - more "sun-kissed" than sunbaked. I personally do not like the orange-y look of "fake-bake" on anyone - either nice light natural tan or natural fair is attractive on male or female in my eyes - in other words, natural skin color.

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.
Well, I'm not saying you should be a hermit. Just that if you want a great tan, you can easily create one yourself without laying in the sun for hours or using tanning beds.

A good, healthy reasonable tan is not bad. Then again I have to be attracted to her, regardless of her color.LOL.

Everybody looks good with some color. Having a healthy glow does not necessarily mean that you are going to age quicker. Moderation in all things is always the best choice. I personally tan not for the cosmetic benefit, but to get vitamin D, which is very important for health.

I will be frank. I am not a huge tan lover, and women with smooth snow white skin usually appeals me more (hope people are not offended by this statement. If so, I am sorry and I did not intend to insult anyone). But for those of you who like tans on women, who in your mind looks very beautiful. Please post links to images which DO NOT contain viruses

Beautiful tans at 25 years of age equals tons of wrinkles at 50. I think that tanning is pretty silly.

That is my one and only post on the subject.

That was true when the first British shipment reached Indian shores somewhere in 1650ish.

Lol seriously!

Give me a redhead/brunette with freckle like Gemma Arterton, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Devon Aoki, and I can die happily. Who needs tanned women?

A tan on a woman is nice as long as it is not overdone. Don't like the leathery, wrinkly skin that results from constant exposure to the sun. Don't mind fair-skin or olive-colored skin as well. It all has to go well with her features and hair.
By the way n2da2nd I can see your point. Wife is redhead with freckles and fair skin and I am quite happy with that.

the natural shade of one Jessica Alba for example would be a good tan.
