I have a medium dark skin tone. My skin is light brown and even though it sounds tanned enough, it isn't. I was wondering if it'll be okay for me to tan during this up coming summer even if I am not white, or in other words, don't have a light color skin tone. I just like being dark and I've always figured tanning as one of my option. I want that "nice glow" everyone talks about. Should I tan? Has anyone else with a darker skin tone tanned before? If so, did it go alright? or did you regret the whole experience?

Hrmm..well of course sun tans aren't good for your skin etc etc blah blah blah.
All that aside, I'm black and I used to tan..still would if I ever started making my way to the beach again. I loved it cause it gave me this really pretty bronze glow to my skin...at the risk of sounding conceited, it gave me a gorgeous complexion and I got a lot of compliments, plus I have stretch marks and tanning made them invisible. Loved the tan lines too...was really sexy for some reason.
Now that I don't purposely tan though, I wear sunblock cause I don't want to end up with a "farmers tan" from my shirts and straps on my dresses...something I didn't have to worry about too much before. Plus its better for me I guess...2
