I know that feeling. I had to go tanning six times at increasing minutes (and a few shades of red) to finally change the color of my skin for the wedding. And while I am again pasty white, I'm not the same pasty white I was (the sticker proves it!), but I expect that to change in another couple of weeks. Knowing you've had this same skin for years, you probably know all the things to do to ease the pain, but one that seems to work well for me is to take a shower after tanning (and burning). For me, it takes a little pain out of the burn. And then lotion up. Lay around naked for awhile so the lotion can sink in.
I always fail at tanning.
Ok, please tell me why simply slathering a 30 SPF on every couple of hours while on vaca is not better than this tanning idea?I mean, I can see how burning while at home is better than burning when you're on vacation (since being hot and in pain are not condusive to the relaxing mentality, and all), but isn't avoiding burning no matter what an even BETTER idea? What're you doing to yourself, sista?
Because even with the highest SPF sunscreen, slathered on to a thick paste, I will still burn. I'm fairly sensitive to sunlight. Normally, I avoid sun exposure, so my skin is pasty white all year round.I expect to burn, but I'm just trying to avoid the burns that usually come with blisters.
I don't understand how fake-baking is helpful in that regard. It is just as harmful to your skin as sunlight is. Do you wear an SPF when you fakebake? Would that even work? (Can you tell that I've never done it? :D I've had the spray-tan applied before, but I've never been in a tanning bed...)
Not safe at all!!! Go with spray on for the color, and long (lightweight) sleeves and hats...
