To fake tan or not to fake tan????
No it's bad for your skin and can look really fake
no its so obvious and not even pretty
i like to fake tan i dont find it bad for your skin especially compared to a tanning bed
I just don't like the look of tans on girls you can tell shouldn't be that colour. For some reason I just think it looks awful and tacky. But I'm biased because I love pale skin.
i tan all the time.
it suits me.
it looks healthy.
you need to make sure you apply the product the correct way, quotes that it looks "tacky" etc either it's a cheap product or it's been used incorrectly.
if you're looking 'orange' or 'ashy' it's because you've used too much product or if you've had a spray done they've not chosen the correct formulation for your skin
if it's uneven/patchy the product hasn't been applied correctly or you still have products that haven't been effectively removed before the tan has been applied.
as you do know before you tan you must not have any make-up/perfume/deordorant etc on and you must exfoliate and moisturise before..
i am a qualified beauty therapist and i'm qualied in spray and manual tan in two brands.
the 'pale' look can look beautiful on the right person and so can tan!
i have black hair dark brown eyes and when i'm tanned people say i look heathly,
i look like "pochontas"
when i'm not tanned i look washed out.
if someone feels great with tan then fantastic, tan!
if you're not a fan, then don't :-)
or if you know someone who is going OTT then kindly give them some advice
Yes, in moderation I like to use it on special occasions, I feel more confident with a healthy tan!!
I don't understand the hype on tanning...what's so wrong with their natural skin tones? I've never had the desire to look darker.
different people like different things :-)
Yeah, everyone's different, and some people look better pale some others dont.
I dont mind fake tan, anything has to be better than sunbeds and burning, but i can never do it right n always end up too orange or patchy. Id rather be pale so i stay natural. If anyone knows any really good ones i can try let me know, im going to egypt soon n i will stand out so bad because i dont tan naturally either. Pale and giger, hurray lol.
lol Tilly!! I would suggest starting with a gradual self tanning lotion in your case ;)
I have nothing against fake tan, unless it makes someone really orange for me personally I don't and never will fake tan, my skin is porcelain toned, and any imperfections would show up too much time and effort would be wasted on me!
I have to spray tan for figure competitions and I love I how on stage with it on because it shows every cut on my body but once the event is over I'm waiting (and scrubbing) the customary two weeks for it to fade. For my non compete months (which is usually summer for me) I like using this tan in bottle that is a more natural.
I'm not a fan of fake tan, I like my complexion as it is. @shelley w, did I read correctly you do figure competitions? That's amazing, I've always been in awe of how much hard work it is. My trainer and I are thinking of going to some competitions! I think it will help me with my motivation. How long have you been doing it for?
I dont like it on me but on some people it wakes their skin look awesome and glowing. On me it looks fake. I have light tan skin so that stuff makes me yellow.

As long as its not orange it's not too bad but I don't think too much is needed in winter
I like it as long as u do it right
Definitely to tan. When done properly it looks amazing and you can't beat a healthy glow. It looks far healthier than dull skin. Vita Liberata all the way though!!!
If you do it correctly it can look very nice.
I am super pale so I love using tanning cream
So far no I dont everyone always looks orange or to dark just take a trip to the beach n relax with sunscreen or lay by the pool natural tan looks better
