I Can't Get a Tan

I have three colors: white, pink, and red. Orange, if I rub fake tanning lotion all over my body. Sad to say, but I cannot get a tan. 32 People

    A Tan

    Before I tan, it will take me for ever.  I burn very fast and turn red.  Some times, after the redness I can become a little tanned or brown and most of the time after the redness, I become white again.

    Not without burning first.

    Unless I use a sunless tanner. Right now I'm doing a combination of sunburning and using Palmer's Natural Bronze gradual tanning moisturizer. Seems to work well.

    Because I can't get a tan,

    I decided to get the sunless tanning lotion... It's quite nice to have my boyfriend to make fun of my orange feet, it's also nice to have orange feet btw.
