    Default Tanning

    I need to get some tanning in - pasty white skin does not cut it for me, but I want to avoid UV beds.
    I know there are some places that offer the spray in the booth, but it only lasts about 6 days.

    I was wondering if anyone knew if the third type was available here in Calgary. I saw it in the States where they take a sprayer and actually spray you - no booth needed, it's a little more pricey, but it lasts longer.

    I heard the dyes can cause a big mess on your sheets (but this info is a couple years old, and i don't have direct experience) and towels as the dye rubs off on them. If you are sleeping on black sheets you are probably fine, but it might be hard to explain the brown stains on your sheets otherwise.

    SPRAY ON TAN? What is this queer eye for the straight guy? Either deal with skin cancer and hit a regular bed or deal with being a whitey.

    Mystic Tan, for me lasted only 2 days, it started coming off horribly after the second day and very unevenly even with moisturizers applied all over. The tan also gets off on 'partners' that you come into contact with if you get wet.

    A few other girlfriends have experienced the same problem. Horrible fading.

    The airbrush by hand is done on 16th Ave. Under the fencing place. However, I don't know how comfortable I would be getting someone to airbrush you.

    A really good alternative after trying many types of tanners is Neutrogena's gradual tan. It goes on really evenly and fades pretty nicely as well.

    I find self tanners don't fade off on sheets after the first few hours and won't come off even if you get wet unless it's the Mystic Tan.

    I'm really white and so is my GF. We haven't burned or turne d pink. We started tanning a little over a month ago and have started to show good color now. We're not dark - but it's way better than how white we were before.

    If you gradually ease into it you shouldn't have any problems like like... we started at 6 minutes and have only now just got into 20. Going twice a week.

    Or you could try using sun screen, it does wonders.
    Who cares if you're white, that is who you are. I dont get fake tans, they look so cheesy. IMO tanning beds and sprays are pretty gay, you shouldn't spend money to do something that will make you look like you're a hundred years old when you're forty five.

    I need a tan 'cause I am doing a body building comp next year.
    Being tanned helps show off the muscles better.

    I don't want to use a self tanner 'cause I don't want to look orange. I love the beds but my skin feels like leather even with all the creams that are out there.

    The self tanners now for both Neutrogena foam and lotion aren't orange. The Mystic Spray Tan is orange.
