    The article is irresponsible to even state to suntan for 20 to 30 min without any sun protection as I am sure you will agree.

    I just want people who visit us to know that tanning in itself is dangerous and causes skin problems as well. If they do choose to tan, they are well informed and to use a broad spectrum sun screen.

    I agree with you. Some people like to be tan, and it is like anything else, you have to use it reasonably.

    We are living in Nevada and the weather is pretty harsh with no humidity so you feel the heat and it is dangerous. In Hawaii you don't feel the heat because there is a lot of humidity and it is more dangerous.

    If you are interested, I can provide you the link of our sun protection article in IM.

    Victoria's Secret has a line of self tanner called Bare Bronze. I used to use it on my face and found that it gave me a really natural looking tan. I used the face and body lotion. It has a light smell that I don't really care for, but you should give it a try. sometimes, they would be on sale, like 3 for $24 or something.

    I hope you are not endorsing this man's opinion. It is irresponsible and most informed people would just simple ignore him like I hope the people on our site will.

    Coconut oil only offers about SPF4 which we all know is not enough protection.
    As for sunless tanning. I like Banana Boat and Avon's airbrush spray. The thing I like most about the spray is that its so fine there isn't really any need to rub it in. Plus the bottle can be used at all angles so easier to use.

    Default Re : tanning lotion...

    Without looking orange mate? I suggest you to look for products that doesn't give you greasy feeling when putting it on!
