    Tanning Virgin

    Advertisements
    So I went to the tanning salon for the first time ever yesterday, and today I most definitely have a sunburn! Ouch...is this normal for the first time around or should I ask to go for less time in my next session?

    PS: I know tanning is really bad for your skin, but my fish belly white skin is even worse, lol! *ducks tomatoes and rotten veggies*

    How long did you stay in the bed for?

    Im naturally tan but even when I use the beds (I usually do 10 min) I get a little burned the next day.
    In MY experience its normal. My ex boyfriend used to tan a lot and hes the opposite of tan so when he had stopped tanning and then started tanning again he got RED RED RED!!!

    Ahhhh whiteness yes! But in all seriousness Burning isn't normal in the tanning salons, they should have started you off with less time on your first time. Did you go in a regular bed? That sucks because now you have to wait till your burn is gone to go back! I'm so white, but I am SmartTan certified !

    Same here When I get a little pale, I hope on the bed for 10 min or so. I hate getting burned though bc I dont stop itching....... Keep yourself moisturized.

    I agree.They should have started you out for a shorter amount of time,but burning is normal, but just a little burning. I'm porcelain white and I don't care. I want to look young when I'm old....
