    Do any guys on here fake tan?

    I'm as pale as they come and I was looking through some holiday photos a couple of days ago and realised how better and healthier I look with a tan. The idea of fake tanning has never really appealed to me but I kind of brought it up with a couple of my mates (guys and gals) and they said they think I should do it and that they don't think it's weird and that loads of guys do it these days. Thing is, I don't want to look like an orange Oompa Loompa, I just want a subtle sun kissed look.

    What are people's thoughts on guys with fake tans? Yay or nay?

    Sunbed probably the better option? Pretty are usually pretty pale this time of year, though! Bring on the summer.

    Wait for the sun to come out, natural tan is always better.

    But make sure you stay protected with high SPF (50/60+) sun lotion since you are quite fair skinned.

    Avoid the fake tan and stick to your au naturale skin colour! Also stay away from sunbeds, they can cause awful damage to your skin.
