    Burning, No Fun.

    I can't tan either. Well, I burn so easily, and then it forms this really weird tan line afterwards.

    I Can't Tan But I Don't Mind

    I am so pale that if I tried to tan I would burn. But I don't care because I like the look of really pale skin and tanning just destroys your skin after a while.

    I Always Burn

    i never seem to tan atall, i just always burn and its sooooo annoying at times, cos i'll burn and then go completely pale again, and it just looks like i've never seen the sun, or when i am burnt, that i've seen far too much of it.....its so annoying!
