Do you use tanning beds? The story with the freakshow that is "tanning mom" is pretty unbelievable. I would never, ever, use a tanning bed or any fake tan products, especially now that they have been classified as carcinegens. They are actually in the same category as cigarrettes now, meaning they WILL give you cancer.
 
So what is the obsesion with looking like a prune? I do not get red and tan naturally (thank you ansestors), so maybe I would understand if I had really fair skin, I don't know. I just think it is not worth it. I still protect myself with sunscreen as much as I can.

I have used them in the past, very minimally, just to get some color before going on vacation.  I prefer getting air brush tanning, done by a person, so they ensure that the color goes on evenly.  They can even apply more color in certain places to make you look more toned.
 
I would never tan in tanning beds on a regular basis, and caucasian people look really bad overly tan- case in point- New Jersey tanning lady!

  I have a tanning bed. My neighbors and friends use it.  I only use it when I have been diving for a month or more. (come home looking whiter than a bleached Alaskan snowman at the end of winter) Otherwise, no chance!  Society provides plenty enough sources for cancer, I don't need any other ones.

  I have read that they have bulbs for tanning beds that actually are good for you.  They are not designed to make you tan though.  I have seen pictures and they  are bright red.  I think I'd feel like a baking chicken in an Boston oven if I climbed into a glowing red coffin.

I've got fairly fair skin & dont tan in a bed or lay out by the pool, no spray tan, etc. I've got two uncles who have had melanoma (they were in construction though) & tan skin just isn't a priority of mine. I don't mind being fair completed.
