Post Tanning

I've heard that the better the tan, the better the cut looks. Is this true?

I agree, I think tans look beautiful. Unfortunately, I'm pale and fair-hair/eyed naturally, and I had a skin cancer scare already (only in my mid-twenties, too), so I've cut the sun and tanning beds out of my life. There are some high-quality sunless tanners that look great, though, and they just get better-looking as your fitness level improves. But the overall look is really noticeable!

tanning definitely makes you look better and leaner. Take tyrosine and zinc before you tan, it makes a major difference.

Try the new BOOTHS for "spray" tans! There is NO skin damage from UV exposure, and believe it or not, you CAN get a very dark tan that looks natural! It's like being air brushed, and I've seen it personally, so I do know, it is not orange, there are no drips, no streaks, and it's natural. It won't last as "long" as a tan from the sun or tanning bed, but then again, you save your skin in the long run and can get much darker much quicker.

And yes, it works on all kinds of skin.

And yes, it definitely makes you look a lot leaner and more cut than you would otherwise.
