    I burn on my shoulders and back.

    Geez...

    How easily do I tan? Ask my feet, which are currently sporting flip-flop shaped tan lines. LMAO...sooo embarrassing! ;D   *Update* I no longer have flip-flop tan lines! I spent the day out and about and now my legs are a lovely, uniform tan. Oh, and I painted my toes too...

    Want To Maintain It!

    Going on holiday for a few days tomorrow, the weather forecast isn't that good so I doubt I'll get chance to top my tan up :(

    When There Is Sun

    Currently I resemble a pint of milk as there has been a deprivation of sun in Ireland for many centuries. However, when I am in a warm climate- within a few sittings out in the sun for short periods, I can completely change skin tone and colour- I tan extremely easy...

    I've only peeled once in my whole life,

    and it's because I spent 12+ hours in the sun when it was 110°F. I'm really surprised I don't have skin cancer yet.. .-.

    I am very proud of my tan

    and I don't want it to get any darker. I have a light bronze tan which looks great with my long blonde hair. But I have to be careful and use sunscreen because I burn easily on my chest, back and legs.

    Naturally Tan

    As soon as summer starts, my skin tone gets tanner. I don't even need to go outside. If I stay outside for long during warm weather, I end up being tawny/ dark brown.

    Easy Tanner

      I tan pretty easily. I have a skin tone that responds well to the sun. If I get any sun at all, I start bronzing up. The best part is that I don't really burn (except for once as below).   The bummer (not sure it's much of a bummer) is that it never extends...

    I've Decided It's a Curse

     i used to think it was cool to get skin color fast, but unless i'm super careful, i end up with unmanageable tan lines from cycling, climbing, running ... sigh. better than burning, but tough to even out :(

    I've been mistaken for Mexican TONS of times.

    Because I'm so tan. It only takes me ten minutes in the summer to get a dark tan. That's part of reason I went blonde, so I don't look Mexican anymore haha

    That I Do

    i guess it has alot to do with the fact that i have grown up in a warm weather climate and the fact that my parents are part spanish so they tan easy but it sure helps me look good i can tell you that

    Don't Fake and Bake

    I don't use tanning beds (fake and bake) and I don't intentionally lay out in the sun TO tan either, but if I'm swimming, boating or fishing... I will end up tanning very easily because I have olive skin (Italian American) I rarely ever burn.
