Question by UP: How can I get a tan w/ out burning up or turning into a big freckle?
I am very fair complected. A couple of yrs ago I got in a tanning bed starting at only 5 mins for a week then up to 8 for a week then 10/week then 15/3 days then 20 the rest of the time. I actually got a tan for the first time in my life. I was so proud.I t’s just too hard to get to the salon to do it. I don’t want to be dark I just don’t want to look washed out. The sun almost always burns me and I have a pool and it’s free and I don’t have to get a sitter. I take melatonin at night to sleep and I heard it helped w/ your skin pigmentation. Please help me to feel better about myself. Please no answers saying just love yourself and be comfortable w/ who you are. I do love myself. I just want to be more confident . Tanning lotions are groce and the mystic tan works pretty well but it’s expensive and I hate getting sprayed.

I didn’t read your whole question, but try a mystic tan.
It’s safe, spray on, and normally looks pretty good.

  1. The gradual tanning lotions aren’t as gross as the ones that make you tan in one application. Jergens makes a decent one.

  2. I too am fair skinned and people around me are Italian need I say more. I try not to stay out in the sun too much but if i happen to I do use a sunscreen of a kinda low number I think 6. But after i come in for the day I shower and put an after sun lotion on such as by Banana Boat. I’ve never been so tan in my life.

  3. Get a tan in the sun, but only put sun sreen on. This helps you not get burned, just tan. hope it helps.
