    I'm just convinced the vast majority of people who tan purposely hate the skin they were naturally born with and it's sad.
    I'm not sure when being pale became a bad or 'unhealthy' thing. I can understand getting a LITTLE color to even out uneven skin or hide imperfections from being outside while exercising or doing daily activities. Getting 10-15 minutes of sun exposure per day is healthy. I'm talking about people who purposely fry their skin and then say they're getting a 'healthy' tan when there is nothing healthy about it.

    Donald Trump knows best.

    Between him and Mr Kim, they want to give lots of people permanent fake tans.

    Your natural complexion is beautiful dear. Because it suits you. Most people look best with the complexion they were born with.
    Pale people usually look better more or less pale with just a hint of sun from being outside like a normal person. Blondes especially look WEIRD when they're DEEP tanned.

    I don't know how people think that crap is attractive.
    Blondes and especially redheads look wayyy better pale.
    Only darker haired people can pull off tanned skin for the most part.

    A wee dash of colour is a must

    My gf actively encourages me to use tinted moisturiser but I decline that offer. Just a wee touch of fake tan to given an even skin tone and hide redness.

    In summer, apply a bit more. Never need to go anywheere near 'orange' nor 'dark'

    Yeah, I mean, generally, if people can tell your tan is fake you're doing it wrong :lol: If I'm wearing tan people often ask if I've been on holiday or sunbeds, suppose I'm sorta lucky that it seems to work well with my skin tone though cause my sis uses the same stuff and she looks a bit orange

    Correct.
    I went too far at one point and people just said 'you've been going on too many sunbeds/where have you been on holiday?' But never looked 'Orange'.

    Girls are quite funny about it I find as they quiz anyone they think has been on sunbeds/fake tan yet if you held a traditional viewpoint ie 'all those products are for women' they'd say 'guys can use them too, they should more often'. Such a contradiction
