    Ok so I am going to Maui in 2 weeks. The issue I am having is the little fact that I got zero tan last summer so I am looking rather pale right now (but soo soft) If I can find a warm day with no clouds I will go home to the country and get a nice overall tan, but since I can not count on this can I get some ideas on tanning, as in beds. I know a guy who owns a tanning place so I can prob do it for free. I have never wanted to before but yet also never been as "metro" as this past year.

    How does one tan and not turn orange?
    How much time does it take?

    General questions and answers, tips, whatever, I havnt got a clue.

    I won't offer advice on how to tan. My father is a plastic surgeon who has to take care of the people who get skin cancer from tanning. I've seen what happens to people. Talk to someone who has skin cancer and see what they think about tanning. If that won't deter you, it will prematurely age your skin and give you wrinkles and make you look older.

    While I've never tried it because I prefer natural, you might want to try this http://www.hollywoodtan.com/uvfree_info.html Two weeks isn't much time to get a great tan in a bed.

    If you want to go in a bed, start out with a Step 1, non-bronzer (big element of the orange happening) and non-tingler lotion. For your skin, I'd say 8 minutes is a good time to start off with.

    Go every other day for those two weeks.

    USE LOTION. There are assholes who intentionally get burned because two days later, you do wind up with a nice tan. However, this is the big thing that causes you shrink up and get cancer. I'm not saying it's 100% safe if you use lotion, but without the lotion, the risks are much, much higher.

    Lots of Vitamin E, a 30+SPF sunblock, only tan early in the morning and do not abuse, it's better to do a little everyday than to go cherry red at once. Sun is actually good for you, it helps your body to catalyze Vitamin K :big grin:

    I don't see why people like tans so much. Pale skin is a sign of purity. I perfer guys who are more fair-skinned than tan.

    are you just trying to get a good starting layer so you tan better when you're in maui? In all honesty what was said above works well. Being from maui, I'd recommend that you go to maui and do more than just goin to the beach though and worrying about getting a tan. Chances are you'll just gain one naturally. Do your thing, go bike down Haleakala, do some of the walks, go to Hana and Upcountry Maui, and i'm certain youll have what you want in no time.

    Aside from that, since you are goin to Maui, might i recommend eating at Da Kitchen (on Hana Highway right by the KMart) and WeiWei Noodles (in Wailuku) Sorry i know that is off topic but most tourists miss out dining at the local places and opt for the haole establishments. :)

    There are other sunless tanners out there that don't streak. I know Bath and Body Works has one that works very well. I don't need to use them, but I've heard from other people.

    Wow, the ragging on Insey.:rofl:


    And people tend to look 'better' with some color, a darker tone makes you look healthier...

    umm wouldnt UVB be much worse for you because of the longer wavelength? UVA is less harmful. UVC is the most powerful.
