Post Is tanning for me???

*I'm (deleted) years old and I am pretty pale. I wanted to go tannig for about a wekk or two because we are swimming n a little while for school. Im really scared of getting burnt or getting skin cancer. But I don't think it will hurt me if I just go for those 2 weeks. Am I right? Will I get cancer if I only go for 2 weeks? And if not, is there anything i can do to help myself to get tan and not burnt?

Get a self tanning lotion if you don't want to get burned.
Quitters always lose, and winners never give up.

Whatever you do, only go like 5 or 6 minutes the first and second times. I made the mistake of going like 8 minutes the 1st day and 9 the next. OUCH!! I think most places~most professional places anyway~ only let you go that amt. the first few times anyway!
