i have naturally really fair skin. I look way better with a tan but can't achieve that with natural sunlight. I use self tanners to get that tan. what do boys think about a girl using a self tanner to get bronzed skin?
honestly? it's kinda lame. I think the best thin you can do for your skin is just to moisturize and use good healthy skin creams and lotions. I guy will respond to soft skin a lot more than a fake tan that might rub off or something (I know the stuff is a little better than that but it's still a pretty excessive element to add to a relationship). It ends up becoming something that you have to maintain (high maintainance is not fun) and you start worrying if you'll be liked without it. when you have to worry about something like that being a factor in your relationship I think it's instantly something worth avoiding.
i go to tanning beds year round...my fiance' loves for me to be dark, and the heart on my hip drives him crazy.
you have less of an orange-zebra look with beds instead of self tanners, might give it a try. but if you have a hard time getting a tan in the sun I don't know how well tanning beds would work out for you...
