I will be fake tanning. My best friend was just diagnosed with Melanoma and she is only 30. It really made me think that all that time in the sun and tanning beds just isnt worth it.

I feel guilty about it, but I’m going to fake bake a couple of sessions before the wedding.  Fiance talked me into it because he is convinced we’re going to burn in Jamaica and be miserable on our honeymoon.  I’ve only gone to the tanning beds a couple of times in high school, but I grew up near the beach and laid out by the pool all the time when I was younger. 

I know that tanning beds are particularly dangerous, but I have to say what convinced me the most was seeing my mom’s skin after she returned from an extended stay in the Caribbean.  I don’t want my skin to be all wrinkled and leathery when I’m older, so I’ve been really good about always wearing moisturizer with SPF, and using sunscreen when I’m out in the sun. 

Nonetheless, I had a bit of color when I tried on my wedding dress and want it to have the same effect.  I’m not going to do anything drastic, maybe 5 session of 7-10 minutes each.  I can definitely see how it could be addicting – I went today and it was so relaxing!

I used to love the beds. Esp in college but now I’m pale as a baby. I’m all about the spray tanning. True, Mystic was a little weird the 1st time I tried it and I didn’t like how it makes your toes look kinda funky but once I showered it was awesome and it didn’t come off on my clothes.

The 1st time I did it was for a friend’s wedding this August. I came home – according to Fiance – “looking like Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder” (hah!) but I took a couple showers & it was fine. Dancing & sweating at the wedding I didn’t smell it and it didn’t come off on my silk dress. I’ll def do it a day or so before the wedding.
