why am I not tanning?

Asked by johnny0313x (1855points) March 5th, 2008 from iPhone

I have been going tanning for almost a month now pretty much everyday. Using regular twenty min bed and higher power ten min beds sometimes using tanning lotions and I do have a slight tan but nothing impressive. I used to tan really well. Any tips or suggstions?

I actually go to help prevent acne and it works ! Otherwise I wouldn’t bother. Is skin cancer guanrenteed?

No, its not guaranteed. My dermatologist used to rconmend it if I wasn’t on any medication. Tanning in moderation is fine for you. Now tanning everyday is probably a bit excessive. I would limit it 2–3 times a week if you aren’t on any skin care drugs.

Some medications can interfere with tanning. Are you taking anything?

Haven’t you heard of Clare Oliver? In short, don’t tan.

I just realized though. Although all the comments and information was very helpful and I’m glad I’ve read everything you all have wrote. Nobody actually answered the question at hand haha

You’re still worried about your slight tan??

jonno's avatar

Well, I’m no expert, but I would say that if you’ve been tanning 30 minutes everyday for the last month and you say there’s no difference, I don’t think anything is going to help.
