...although the pit can't be serious but I'll try.

So, the summer is here and I want to get a nice tan until school starts again. However, when I'm sunbathing it's enough with 30 mins and then I'm all RED! I'm using sun lotion 30 (very high) still I get red rather than brown. How come? How can I get a nice tan (not any sh!t creames or solarium, just the simple sun) when I get all red?

Sit out for 15 minutes instead of 30.

some people dont tan, some people just burn, peel, and turn white again...

no seriously, it has alot to do with the skind type. people with red or blond hair don't tan easy, whereas dark haired people do

Still, I thought that sun lotion was made so people would not burn their skin..?

You can't tan... I normally burn, turn brown, turn white again within a month. Can't hold a tan worth a crap.

i hear Cuprinol fence spray works rather well to get a tan, try it out and show us the results.

Just don't tan... Because it's bad for your skin and doesn't help your appearance all too much.

Well a tan is much more nicer than pale skin..

on a slightly more serious note, you should probably give it up if you keep burning yourself, and it aint even that good for you anyway, skin cancers not the coolest of things

Fixed.

And that's opinion, I love pale-skinned girls. I also love girls that are a little darker, but I'd prefer it to be a naturally tanned skintone.

if you're going to do something as stupid as sunbathing, you should only do it in small intervals (5-15 minutes) at a time. the idea is to gradually build a tan, not burn yourself. either way it's retarded - most of the time i think tanned people look ridiculous, not hot. i'll quite happily stay pale thanks.

^ This is my kind o' girl

As good-looking as some naturally darker people are, I'll always prefer pale.

I do martial arts, because weight-lifting can (not necessarily will) be bad for you long term. And I'm perfectly happy with how much my muscles show

Wow, lamest post ever. Most of the "hot chicks" aren't that hot, because they ruin their appearance with tanning and way too much make-up. Also, they generally are way to aesthetically focused to have a whole lot of depth to them.

May I ask why you want to look like other people? Let alone other people who use stupid things like tanning to be "attractive"?

What I do is just lather on Aloe Vera gel after sitting in the sun for awhile. Put a good amount on every 20 minutes or so after you come in.

Right now I'm the darkest I've ever been in my life. I used to either burn hardcore or don't change color at all, but the Aloe Vera is working magic.

^that's a little too tanned

I think pale girls are cuter than tanned, or well it depends, but I think most girls like tanned guys rather than paled.

Yeah, i already feel that. I'm 20 and been lifting for three years. It's easier for soreness of joints to set in, especially if you don't have good form or learn right (in the beginning).

Anyways, I'm naturally tan, and let me tell you, your natural skin tone works best for you...unless you're an albino...just don't tan too much.

it's just funny to laugh at people who think they are making themselves hotter by sunbathing/using fake tan, but who are actually just making themselves look like douchebags.

i guess my point is that a tan doesn't necessarily make you look any more attractive than how you are naturally. it's a completely unnecessary to do such damage to your skin. just be happy with yourself for who you are.

Yeahh, I've taken Go Ju Ryu Karate Do for 6 years (stopped going to to the academy a little while ago) and it's probably done good for my joints, as well as muscles. I still practice it in my spare time, and I'm starting up in MMA this year.

I'd assume that the point is that tanning is a trend people have started because they think it looks good, and cool. These are examples (albeit extreme) of what can come of this. There are some people who tan tastefully, and it doesn't look disgusting... But I can't say anybody I've ever seen looks any better with a tan.

So why would you go out and do something that damages your skin, without improving your appearance (that much even, at the very least), and can even degrade your appearance if done wrong?

Now I'll take my second (and last) problem with my look.

Under my eye, it's like a big black ring and a "bag" or what they call it that won't ever gtfo. It's just there. How should I tell this to gtfo?
