Cool What about sunless tanning?

It's that time of year again. I will start laying out in the sun around the end of next month when it warms up here. But I usually start using sunless tanning about this time. You know, the lotions that give you a sunless "glow"? Are these safe to use? I wasn't so sure about the spray on tan, but what about the lotions? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: What about sunless tanning?

I think you'll get mixed opinions about this. I opted to be on the safe side and not use any.

As a side note: It hasn't even gotten cold here yet! It's 70 degrees right now and it's February! This is supposed to be our "cold" month!! Gotta love Texas weather!

Well, what about that new lotion out now? Oh, I forget what it's called. But it was really big last year, and I used it. All it was was a lotion. It was supposed to give you a glow?

Re: What about sunless tanning?

Thank GOD for sunless tanning creams! My dr. said it was prefectly safe and ok to use these. The sunless tanner only tans the dead skin cells on the top level and are safe to use while pregnant!

This has really helped me not olook so washed out, especially in my first trimester.

I would use sunless tanner and not worry about it. I don't think it is a big deal...Skeeter made a good point, it colors the dead skin cells and isn't likely to seep into your body.
