please don't try to tan! when your skin changes color (tanning) it is due to damaging your skin with UV rays. freckles from the sun are also a visible sign of sun damage. if you have been to a tanning bed once in your life before the age of 20 you have increased your risk of getting melanoma by 75%! one time! melanoma is the most severe type of skin cancer and it is the most common form of cancer in women aged 25-30. every time you go outside, even if it is cloudy you need to wear at least spf 15 or higher. tanning won't cover up your stretch marks either, but a fake tan (spray on tan, tanning creams etc) most likely will and you're not damaging your skin or setting yourself up for melanoma. I'm sorry for the rant but I just believe in protecting yourself from this!
