When To Stop Tanning
imageHere's a picture that I got in my email, which is appropriate for these hot summer days. Not to be negative about sun worshippers, but it's pretty gross. The woman's skin could have been made to look like that with photoshop, but I suspect the image hasn't been manipulated because I know that there are people whose skin really looks like this.

The scary part that no one has mentioned is that she probably isn't very old.

I'm comfortable with the fact that I will have wrinkles at 80, but i don't think this woman is 80. Tanning will make you look that way at 40 or 50, especially if you are naturally fair skinned. Don't do it!! That doesn't mean you have to stay inside all the time, I just use suncreen and a hat or parasol when I go to the beach smile

My product guarantees that no one will look like this no matter what amount of exposure they get to the UV rays.

Not a tan lotion
