There's a fine line between tan and looking like you rolled in a bag of doritos.
Stop going in the tanning bed. It is BAD for you. I hear you. It looks good… it’s addicting… it feels good to be in the warmth of the bed. I used to tan all the time. Since I started working in aesthetics thought, I’ve become extremely pale. I refuse to sit in the sun without S.P.F and a hat. I don’t care how silly I look, I know the effects of the sun, and being a sun worshiper will effect my career. So I stopped. I know not everyone needs to look young for a job, so why do you think you look better after tanning?
If your answer to this is I want to clear up my acne, my answer to you is: SEE AN AESTHETICIAN.
If you say, I like the look of being tan, I say spray it. I just learned how fun spraying is!
Using natural elements like sugarcane and beets based products won’t clog your pores, and better yet, it won’t cause skin cancer, and most important: It won’t prematurely age your skin!!! My favorite part: I smell like candy after tanning! (I have a sweet tooth).
90% of aging is due to the sun. All the sun worshipers of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s are obvious when they walk in my door. Usually within minutes of our first conversation they tell me they used to sit in the sun with baby oil. And reflectors. These women have notably thick leathery skin. This is from natural UV light, I’d hate to see what we’re (well not me… my generation) going to look like!
So if you feel the need to be tan, please PLEASE go spray tan!
