Never heard of sun spray- the unsticky, fast-dry ones? :lol: and omg at needing 50 factor in UK, do you ever go to sea (Spain or so) and if so, do you wear 80 factor or something?
I don't really understand the spray stuff tbh. You spray it and then still have to rub it in anyway, right? :-?

And yeah, I think 50 is the highest, so I wear that if I'm abroad too. People laugh, but I got burnt the other week whilst wearing freaking factor 50!!!! :cry:
I make a point of wearing 50+ sunscreen being pale & all, although I have been using a 30+ sunscreen spray in recent months & I really like it. Never used to like sunscreen sprays, but for some reason I'm digging the one that I'm using. Just got to remember to re-apply, that's all.
Let's embrace the point of no return.

Oh I went on one three years ago for 6 minutes when my friend dragged me in and it ended up making my skin unbearably itchy and red the day after so I haven't touched them since. If I ever did it again it'd be 3 minutes, but I've just been on holiday and was quite happy pale and lying in the shade :lol:

I just can't tan at all. I'm like an honorary ginger.

All this talk in here of you guys using tanning beds & worshipping the sun (and I presume you're doing this without sunscreen) makes me Image...I've mentioned why it does many times before, so I won't go into it again.
Lol most of the times i go without these sunblock products but there were quite a few instances that i used the ones with the lowest possible sunblock SPF degrees... i've used nothing higher than SPF 2 or 5 at max. Some are using SPF 50 lol... then whats the point of using that and sunbath? Llloll... no nothing will happen afterwards lloll

I can't w/the fake orange-ish UV tan.
I'm tanned all year long, 'cause I live in an island and it doesn't take me ages to get some color :oops:

In our country beggars and alcoholics who prefer to drink very cheap wine get the so called "fake tan" skin condition

Pulling an Igloo Azalea this summer. :cry:

And sitting at home studying for exams all day every day for the past few weeks doesn't really make it any better. Can't wait to get out of here.

I gave up on tanning years ago and to be honest I'm happy in this way with my natural skin tone.
It's a torture to me stay under the Sun for long time.
I'm like her :lol:

I tried sunbeds once, but it was horrible, it seemed to be inside a tomb, very claustrophobic, not to mention that is very unhealthy.

I know people who looks +10 years older because they are obsessed to be tan all the year, Sun and tanning beds ruined their skin during the years and it's not worthy in my opinion... Not really here for that.

I love having a tan, sunbathing, all that. I even put the intense burning cream on myself to make it faster and darker. I just look and feel so much better 8-) and I love darker skin on most people

I know you live up north Biebz but surely the sun must come out sometimes?? I struggle to believe you've never had a tan

I tan like anything even when there's barely any sun :lol: even my hair tans - by the end of summer it's usually a weird mix of brown and blonde :lol:

I always avoid the sun, so I wear a t-shirt and stay in the shadows, back then I also had a sun allergy, gladly it's gone

Being pale is something special, so I am proud of it, noble and classy
