SUMMER IS COMING! (for those of us who do not live in warm weather 12 months out of the year). What do you do when it comes to the summer sun? Do you hide away where it can never touch your delicate skin? Or do you go all out greasing yourself up with oil in hopes of baking like a crispy potato? Do you use tanning booths or spray tan?
Today is our first REALLY warm day and I'm looking at myself in my tube top and shorts realising how sickly pale I look, this is why I asked lol.
I don't actively try to sun tan. I dealt with skin cancer before and skin treatments left my skin really senstive to the sun. I don't hide away either because I love the feeling of the sun on my skin, I just make sure to wear sunscreen (mine is medical strength and goes on like paint, so I kind of hate it) and not be out too long.
I've never been in a tanning booth or spray tanned in my life (not because of any fear or aversion, I just haven't and now I can't use a booth. For spray tans I worry about cheap ones making me look orange and I'm too cheap for the good ones. I usually end the summer with a natural "tan" just as a result of being outside, that is roughly my sisters natural skin tone. Damn you fair skin.
