So, who goes indoor tanning??

Thread Starter 
I have a gross question about it, so I need to know who goes so I can ask it

I used to go all the time until I learned it could cause skin cancer. Now I don't go anymore- i'd rather not risk it. I also wear sunscreen religiously now

I don't. I am very fair skinned and burn really easily. I went once and was in for about 2 minutes and ended up with sunburn Never went back.

I do need to invest in a sunlamp of some sort though because apparently I'm not getting enough Vitamin D. My blood levels are less than 1/2 of what they should be and because of that I'm having a whole lot of bone pain and have to take a high dose prescription vitamin. A sunlamp might benefit me but I'm afraid of getting burned again.

I used to go to tanning until I got the tattoos on my back, now I don't go anymore because the tats cost too much to ruin with tanning beds.

But I went for the UVs, not for the tanning, as I have seasonal depressive disorder.

Now I use full spectrum lights at home to help keep my skin clear and to help chase away the winter blues.

Nope. Never have, never will. It looks, IMO, really bad and it causes caner....no reason to do it!

I don't because I think it makes your skin look disgusting and fake. I also don't care for skin cancer either. I am surious too though about your question.

I do, but I have never been one to get the "fake" look..........meaning, WAY too dark. I just reach a certain color and thats it....and its never been too dark.

Not me! Why expose yourself to skin-damaging/wrinkling, cancer-causing UV radiation more than you have to? It only takes moderate tanning to cause skin cancer. No thanks!
