    Need help with Desired Tan...Lol + pictures?

    So its basically summer, and my friends think i am paler than a "white goat". And it is scaring them.

    I want to get a nice tan or look healthy.. anything but pale.. but i have no time to just sit in the sun, I would use products that would give me a tan.. but when ever i use any.. my friends say i look fake and golden.

    Also years ago i swam alot in the summer, and i got a golden dark brown tan, and i dont want that. I'm trying to aim for a peachy tan.. not a Dark brown. Or just a nice peachy skin color that looks or appear healthy.

    Does anybody have any tips.. or special products ?


    thankssss

    For god's sake, stay out of the sun, or if you must be outside, slather yourself with the highest SPF you can find. Your friends are idiots, and in twenty years you can laugh at them when you look great and they look like old luggage.

    Embrace your paleness! Take a tip from these folks!

    Do your friends also insist on 'popin' your collar?

    lol you'll definitely look dead after a few years of tanning behind you.

    Really, being healthy is much better than 'looking' healthy. Also big lols at that blog, it reminded me of Gary Oldman as Zorg.

    He's not really being a dick, considering that he has a very valid point. Being tan does not equal being healthy, it's a cosmetic preference. I've heard girls say that being tan makes them look thinner. While that may or may not be true, it doesn't actually make them any healthier than wearing a corset does. What you seem to be wanting is to change your skintone, not get a tan. Worse, you're doing it because your friends say you're too pale? Come on. Tell them to enjoy their crows feet and melanoma and slather on that SPF 70. Better yet, get friends that aren't so concerned about how you look standing next to them on a beach.

    Some people have naturally darker or "peachier" skin. Some people are as pale as a Yeti's asshole. You can get closer to that golden brown you had as a swimmer if you feel like tanning, but neither sunlight or lotions are going to change your basic skin color. A person with olive skin will not get peachier by roasting their ass off.

    It's pretty widely known that excess sun exposure is damaging to your skin and accelerates aging. While a little sun isn't bad, going out and baking is something you'll regret later on in life. I've seen 23 year old women in college who look much older because they've been tanning since high school. If that's not enough, the risk of skin cancer increases rapidly with more sun exposure. It's just not worth it.

    Throw yourself into the sun.

    Or just chill in the backyard in a nice patch of that sweet Vitamin D.

    Both work equally well.

    Lol i really enjoy having my arabic skintone :p But really, there are not many ways to change your skintone, either sun, or some shitty spray that will give you a weird skintone, or you can make up all your body :p takes time and it's useless if you'll go in the water ! Lol your friends are silly to say that ( are they the same friends that were trying to rape you on your youtube vids ?, and btw, nice cwalk tut ! )

    Bleh, I don't like tanned skin (on women anyway) it looks absolutely horrible, paleness is awesome

    Unfortunately I have naturally tan skin, I don't like looking a little orange all the time
