surfing The American Dermatological Association REALLY does not want us  to get in the sunlight at all.  And now we realize the valuable  properties of exposure to the sun (vitamin D) and the ways to prevent the skin  cancer of the past (moderation, high quality sunscreen, etc.).  Also now we know that the sun we get today  can rear its ugly head twenty or so years down the road IF WE DO NOT  TAKE PROPER CARE.  What has been done, has been done.  There  have been all sorts of ways designed to placate the die hard tanner  such as regulated tanning beds to prevent weekend warriors…remember, moderation and a reputable tanning salon will  see to that.  There is also spray tanning…nothing more than a harmless sugar compound that react with the dead protein in skin cells but really stinks.  And then there is Tantra MTII that causes your body to produce more melanin naturally and allow you to get as dak as you like from the inside out.  The color comes from your melanocytes so you will only turn brown where they are, not on the palms of your hands, and because it developes deep in the dermis, you can't shave it off or scrub it off, it just slowly fades away over about three months.  it's beautiful, streakless and you control the color.  Why don't more people do that?
