I Tan Easily

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 133 People

    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

    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 Do Not Tan In A Bed

    I have a light olive complexion and people think I tan year round.  I am not a sun worshiper but I love being outdoors. I tan easily and get my summer color while playing sports outside or walking along the beach. I wear lots of sunscreen and I have never had a sunburn. ...

    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.

    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 :(

    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 :(

    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...

    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.

    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

    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...
