I Tried

Once I tried so hard to tan.

I slathered myself with tanning lotion and went out to sunbathe every 30 minutes, for only about 10 minutes at a time. (I'm very pale- any longer would've fried me.) Well, I ended up looking like a lobster anyway. It was so painful I had to lie on frozen bedsheets and have a friend lightly smooth aloe gel onto my scorched skin. As soon as the gel would touch my body, it would melt into liquid and actually steam. It was HORRIBLE.

I'd love to tan, but it's apparently not in the cards for me. lol

I am working on it! I do love being pale, but every summer I get this weird desire to be golden brown, like so many of the girls I pass by!

Hi Alana8480 <br />
better not to tan. I did too much sunbathing and get a reaction now. Just love the skin you are in I guess.<br />
