Ok, so I think we all know of the obvious dangers of tanning beds. But there is one that I wanted to alert those to, that might go unnoticed by those less experienced tanners (like myself).
I went to the tanning bed yesterday. I haven't tanned in several years, and I wanted a good tanning lotion. I asked the owner of the salon what she recommended. She got very excited and showed me this bottle of stuff and told me how much this other lady that works there loves it. And it was much cheaper than the other stuff too!
I bought it, and went into the tanning room and slathered myself down quickly before I got into the tanning bed.
Then I got my hair cut.
Then I went to pay for my haircut and tanning lotion and the lady at the counter says "what's this? I didn't know we sold SUNLESS TANNING LOTION."
Two hours later, I get home to shower and find myself with dark brown streaks all over my body!!! Between my fingers and toes, all down my legs, and my elbows look like I rolled them in the dirt!
Ofcourse, if I had been using the stuff for the right reasons, I would have applied it evenly yada, yada. But I thought it was for the ******* tanning bed!
Someone PLEASE tell me that this stuff wears off fast!
