There's a reason pale people shouldn't try to tan...

Post by maggiemay on Sat Apr 30, 2011 7:26 pm

I was outside all day today working. Come about 4:00ish my friend and I ran out of things to do and didn't want to leave before my dad so we laid in the grass and talked/tried to tan. I just ended up burning, on my face and arms. There are really odd pale parts in the burns too where there was paint I hadn't cleaned off yet.

And the worst part - dance pictures are this week :O I'm hoping they'll turn out okay...

So yet again I've learned to just give up at tanning xD Does anyone else have this problem?

Haha thanks Very Happy It doesn't hurt too badly right now, thankfully. I hope so! If you look at it the right way, it looks tan and not burned. Well, it does to me at least.

I'm glad it doesn't hurt! I'm sure you won't be able to tell in the pictures. Smile

My boyfriend and I got sunburned on the way to NH.....in the car. It wasn't bad, we didn't peal or anything. But it was red and it hurt for the night.

One time I had a weird sun allergy episode, and after a very mild burn, my nerves just went insane and I had this uncontrollable, unbearable itching all over my body for like three days. I took mountains of benadryl and antihistamines, and even went to the emergency room. I was freaking delirious after 48 hours with no sleep, all drugged up and stuff. That was definitely not my finest moment. lol, rubbing my back over everything and pacing and sweating like a mad woman. Haha.

I really hope that doesn't happen to you.
The price we pay for being pasty. Sad

I get tan without even noticing. I personally prefer to walk everywhere so the sun just kinda tans me in motion. I most people prefer to do it on the beach but I never got that. When I go to a beach I spend my whole time in the water. If I wanted to spend my time lying on sand I would go a desert. When I am on the beach I am in the sea. Oh yeah

I go between the water and sand at the beach. I prefer the water though. I don't usually burn too badly at the beach unless I don't put on sunscreen.

I'm quite possibly the whitest person I've ever seen. I burn in like 5 minutes outside. Then after a couple weeks, it peels, and I'm even whiter than before.

But that's okay. Tanning is overrated. I don't understand why you can't just be your natural color. I'm white, and that's what I'm supposed to be.

Everyone has been tanning for prom, and I'm just like, "What's the point?" It's really unhealthy, and it looks terrible.

I might be whiter than you Razz I don't burn that fast, but it doesn't usually take long. It's faded into a tan and thankfully my dance pictures have looked okay so far.

I don't usually try, I figure it'll happen if it wants.

If you're tan, it's harder to burn Razz

That's the only reason I put in an effort to get a decent base tan down, I don't do it for the look. I hate sunburns. They hurt Sad It's too hard to remember the 100SPF sunscreen every time I leave the house.

That's just it. I don't tan. I just burn. The only brown loveliness I get is freckles. Neutral
