The Baines School in Lancashire has decided to ban fake tans. From The Telegraph
"The current trend for fake/spray tans does little to enhance the appearance of our young ladies," [Carol Robinson, head of the school] wrote. "We ask for your support in ensuring girls do not come to school looking varying shades of orange."
She claimed that fake tan went against the principles of the school, where staff strived to "promote natural beauty and contentment with one's own looks".
Her remarks have been met with cautious support with some of her more pale-skinned pupils at the school, which educates 1,070 children aged between 11 and 18.
Sounds sensible to me, and this seems like an appropriate place to post the pictures of the "Oompa Loompa Tan Lady"
whose pictures have recently been circulating around the web. I don't know who the woman is, but as far as I can tell, the photos are real. Someone should have told her to go easy with the fake tan spray.
Tanning bed use can be much worse, though. I used to work part-time at a video store/tanning salon in a small rural town in Minnesota. I still remember having 16 year old girls come in looking like carrots and getting in the beds to keep that Day-Glo coloring. UGH!
Also, is it just me or does that guy look likes he doesn't want her touching him? Might stain his clothes, after all!
And I agree, the guy looks like he doesnt want to be near her. Especially in the second pic. He looks like he is thinking "get the heck off me you freak".
