    Hey everyone!

    Just wondering, does anyone use a sunbed on here? I'm sick of looking pasty as fe*k and want a bit of colour... but I'm a bit concerned with all the health risks and stuff that are associated with sunbeds. Anyone help me out that knows their stuff? lol

    Thanks!

    Mmm - true

    Ideally, I'd like to go to a salon and get one of those really cool ones like in Friends where Ross gets a tan lol but I have no idea where the nearest one to me is, and I imagine it'd cost a whole heap more than a superdrug's own jobbie lol

    I did get a tan on my arms from Reading a few weeks ago - my nose also went bright red, honestly I could have lost Rudolph a job!

    fake tan lotion...no no no NO NO. all my friends have done it and have ended up with streaky legs/arms. as for fast tan centres theres places i think where you can go on for a minute or something, and the colour gradually comes in after you've come out, it builds up gradually. they seem to look better than sunshowers/tan lotions

    well i wouldnt really recommend the sunbed...it can apparently get quite addictive...
    umm, i know there are some spray on fake tans that dont give the streaky look. there is also air-brush tanning (look in the argos catalogue for that)

    Actually new look do them and they're really good.

    At the risk of sounding like a cheapo, Wilkos do good ones too.

    And Asda's range isn't too bad.

    I think PizBuin and Ambre Solaire ones are great but really over priced.


    DON'T use lotions - they're crap, but WIPES are really good.

    Simple fake tan is brill. The colour is really natural and it rarely streaks. So there you go a brill tan and no skin cancer.

    I put fake tan on my leg once it looked well funny, although I did only do it messing around. Went a nice orange/brown colour!

    I think if you use a good quality one (PizBuin etc) then you can't go wrong.. although, being a lad I can't tell you how good the results are!

    what ya gonna do?

    It seems like the wipes and the spray tan are the best options... think I'll be going to find a studio somewhere that can do a spray one - I'll let you know what the results are when I find it! hehe.

    Thanks everyone!

    Spray tan is the way to go... sun beds wont really do you any favours if you have pale skin anyway.

    Go and get it done at a proper tan place though!!!

    Be careful at the salon, though - one of my friends got it done and it looked terrible! My cousin got one at The Tanning Shop, costing £30 I think, but that didn't turn out good either. Yet another friend got a Fantasy Tan, I think that was the best. Or you could get the salon to apply the lotion - at least it won't be streaky. Remember to exfoliate and moisturise the night before!
