    Do you use them?? And how often??
    I prefer them over the sun any time. I can get an entire days worth of sunlight, in a mere 20 minutes :)
    I like to lie there and relax, listen to some music while roasting.
    I am an every day tanner, I go to the tanning bed every day. The one thing that does piss me off is when Obama decided to start the taxes on the tanning salons.
    Now it costs me about $5 more per month to tan.

    But, what ya gonna do?? :dunno:

    I'm black so no need to use them.

    Your skin won't be thanking you, but your dermatologist will!

    Yeah, I hear a lot of negative things about a tanning bed. But so far, I haven't had anything happen to make me reconsider- yet!

    Hey, if it makes ya happy and feel good about yourself, go for it!


    But, down the road......meh, different strokes for different folks!


    I wear 80 SPF when I'm out in the sun. Tanning is not something I'm into, but I do love to be outside.

    Thanks Echo :)
    Believe it or not, I have never worn any kind of sunscreen, that I am aware of. I say that because I don't know if my Mother put any on me when I was little.
    But I can think from age 15, and I never used any at all. I tan pretty easy, and I do not like wearing shorts if my legs are very white in the summer. I like for them to be bronzed.
    I can get awful headaches if I stay out in the sunlight for any long periods of time. I like it outside too, but just not when the hot sun is beating down on me :)

    I tan, but not in a booth. Either out by to pool or on the beach.

    ^^^^ This is wise.

    I wouldn't use a tanning bed... they do huge damage to your skin... I know women of 40 who've used them for years and they look 10 years older than they are.

    I want a tan - I spray it on. Easy. Simple. Cheap. And healthy.
