Do you tan?

Recommended Posts

More for the mixed / black people but everyone feel free to contribute.

Basically I tan really easily and get dark quickly. I had this moment when I was walking on the beach in Spain thinking 'this is nice everyone is some shade of light brown here kinda like me' then I looked at my arms and thought 'am I f*ckin black?'

I was only away a week and I come back to find Im darker than my dad and one other African friend I seen today.

So mixed race people how do you take to the sun? Black people do you get darker when you go abroad?

In all honesty though when black people are "sun kissed" it's hard to find more radiant looking skin.

I've always imagined you to be light skin for some reason.

I usually tan nicely... I've been burnt once and that was in America 10 years ago. Dunno what happened there. When I went to Ghana in '05 I turned caramel. Wish I never came back and lost that glow :(

I tan well and keep a fairly decent colour until it gets real cold. My only gripe is that I get very orange before I golden due to the yellow tones
