Indoor tanning in a stand up booth!

Indoor tanning beds/booths or you can put on sunless tanner regularly onto the paler parts of your body blending it out to the darker parts….  or start cycling in tube tops? LOL

I am an avid runner and had the exact same problem — sports bra and ponytail tans aren’t the best in a strapless gown! Unfortunately, the only real solution is sunscreen for whenever you’re out in your cycling gear. For me, it meant that I wasn’t as dark as I usually am but at least I didn’t have awful strap lines. Spending as much time lounging around in tube tops and the like beforehand also helped — a bit of sun always snuck through the sunscreen, so that both helped even it out and helped me be a bit less pale.

@ajillity81:  I really suggest Jergens. Another bee told me about a few months ago and it completely cleared up my (terrible) tan lines.

What’s wrong with being pale? Pale =/= unhealthy.

I’m avoiding making any snarky remarks about tanning, but I will say that I would NOT use sun beds. Horrible things – so bad for your skin!

My dad has skin cancer so obviously I’m never going to a tanning bed again… My plan is to wear major sunscreen this summer and then get a spray tan right before my wedding. I’ve had them done before and I always get asked “wow you look so good, what have you done differently?” No one can even tell it’s a spray tan!

I tested out an airbrush fake-n-bake to address this issue, and it worked great, so that’s what I’m doing. It lasted about 8 days, and looked best days 3-6. If you want to go that route, I definitely advise testing out the salon well beforehand so you’ll know how it wears and what the best lead time is.

I had the exact same problem! My FH knew how paranoid i was about it, so for Christmas he gave me sun sleeves- they’re like thin arm warmers. I found them comfortable for the most part throught the hot Australian summer, but they weren’t very nice if it was really humid.

I am naturally pale, so I’m not doing any fake tans etc, but at least I don’t have a cyclist tan line!

If you are going to do spray tanning I would suggest custom airbrush (i.e. someone spraying you themselves) over a booth. With the booth you risk your hands, feet, and face being too dark and not as natural coverage.

I have such negative feelings about tanning, that to me pale looks healthier than a dark tan. Why not skip tanning altogether?

@ajillity81:  indoor tanning for a few sessions, of if you have somewhere private you can go topless outside.
