"I have never fully understood the appeal of fake baking. For me, a little bit of bronze glow (ideally after a week-long vacation at the beach) should be a natural occurrence, and in my case, one that happens despite the SPF 45. Although, I admit, I have been in a tanning bed before (maybe five times total?), the results were nothing more than painful patchy burns on the palest parts of my body that don't typically see the sun. So, yeah, I'll be forgoing the sunburned bottoms, fake orange-y color, and voluntary UV damage from here on out."
