    Tanning






    I am sure people who care for their body also tan. I am starting to go to tanning salons and use the tanning booths. The first time I was there, I was in for ten minutes, and saw little to no affect. I want to go again, but I went two days ago, is it ok for me to do this?

    Dermatologists will tell you time and time again that tanning booths are the absolutely worst thing you can do to your skin.

    I tend to agree. Cancer is no bullshit matter.

    If you are very white, it will take a lot longer than just one visit for you to see a difference. You'd have to expose yourself very frequently to get a base tan going, and this is part of the reason why it is a problem for someone like you.

    Tanning is NOT taking care of your body.

    I used to be obssessed with getting tan, then I stopped when I noticed I started to develop wrinkles on my forhead...
    I freaked out, stopped going to the beach and pool on a daily basis, and my skin is so much better now. There's absolutely nothing wrong with having pale White skin...

    I agree with all the reasons not to tan.

    However,

    with that said...

    Tanning beds/tanning salons can vary greatly. Like wine or perfume. Some are no good. Cheap places often have low quality/old bulbs. Just becasue the light is on...doesn't mean you're getting what you are paying for. Ask the owner how often he changes the bulbs. Also, ask if there are various levels of beds. Cheaper beds can be worse on your skin. There are some beds/bulbs out there that don't give off as much of the bad stuff.

    I'm not saying it's 'good for you'. I'm just saying...if you're gonna go anyway...
    Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

    I like to a few times at the beginning of the summer so that I'm not too white.

    Oh, and I rob a liquor store or two so that I feel even less white.

    That alone won't do it, WHAT did you take from the liquor store? White Zin or a nice Chardonay won't cut it. You better be the proud owner of a big ole bottle of MD 20/20 or Thunderbird.

    Okay, so I'll abandon a toddler, put a new born in a dumpster, and cover a building in graffiti. How's that sound?

    Better, but it still doesn't address the issue I pointed out. Come on, you can tell me, you took a bottle of Turning Leaf, didn't you?

    A nail gun would ensure that they don't fall down.

    I was thinking about a pheumatic framing nailer, but it's a bit too bulky to carry around.

    In prison isn't that a signal for an invitation that you prefer your guests to enter through the rear?
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    tanning always is gonna be bad, but who gives a shit one way or another you'll die, tanning shows all the cuts, I tan 4 times a week, used to be 5 , haha, I'm olive colored, but its the sweetest thing ever, plus
    You have to build up to the light, like bodybuilding,
    Day one, 10 min
    day two 10 min
    day 3 11 min
    day 4 11
    next week if you plannin on goin higher, go higher every two days. trust me it works.

    There's nothing wrong with using a tanning salon if you want to walk around looking like a catcher's mitt. Have fun!

    Overly tan chicks = GROSS.
