    What the best most cost effective tanning product.

    OK we all know that we look 10-20 times better when we are darker. Hell I look like I have abs if I tan right(trick is to layer the cream in circular spots so you appear to have a colored in six pack, got the idea from tv and sounds cheasy but it works!) anyways...What do you guys think is the best stuff for indoor and out door. The best fake tanner by far for me is bain desol the two tube package, its expensive but doesnt turn me orange. Im asking this becuase I hate spending 80 bucks at my salon because some hottie tricked me into buying some over priced lotion. I know the lotions work because I dont get any color if I dont put cream on. Its mostly genetics but I like the dark look, besides with a very latin name and white features I look weird.

    try living in the uk!! we only get a tan if we go on holiday for long enough

    some other countries seem to have this big bright thing called "sun" in the sky and that does the trick! we have these things we call "clouds" but they dont seem to tan us too well

    Nothing like good ole Vitamin D sunshine... Best tan you will ever get. However, I do spend some time in the sun beds, usually in the winter or before summer hits to get a "base tan">

    I use swedish beauty tingler. It is expensive but the shit works well. Once you get your body pretty dark you really don't need lotion to maintain the tan, IMO. Best thing to do is try and get as much natural sun as possible.

    Those fucking chicks are hot though!!. You must tan at Planet Beach.

    my advice is a little expensive, but it does have other perks....take a vacation to Aruba---80-90 degrees, Sunny beaches and a nice breeze that makes laying around easy to soke up some rays!!! WAAALAAAA...your a bronze god when u get home.

    If you do decide to go with the beds and DON'T want to get ripped off by your salon.....NEVER buy their lotion. Try the link below for the SAME products and SAME cost your salon pays. I personally use "Titanuim" and works AWESOME for only $29.

    oh yeah you can take L-Tyrosine too to help with tanning. The key is to keep your skin moisturized tho. Get a good moisturizer and use it 2 or 3 times a day. I recommend Hempz from Supre. Available on that site for a crapload less than i paid for my first bottle.

    AHH I made up for the price gouging by taking one of those tanning salon girls out and leading her on into thinking I was looking for a relationship, but really I just wanted her tan little ass. :-), dumped her a week later, no that should be worth the 70 bucks I paid for the stupid tanning stuff.

    Like we all know that tanning is not good for your skin.

    Anyways, I was watching Entertainment TV ( E!) and they had a thing about tanning.
    They were showing how you could get tanned at a salon where they put some kind of lotion on you and you look really tan. You don't have to go in tanning bed or on the sun. They just apply it evenly, leave it for 30 min then take a shower. The stuff did not turn theyir bodies orange or nothing. IT was like a perfect tan. They said it was the safest tan passible and most of the models get it.

    Did anybody watch that, becasue I want to know where can you get tanning like that. I forgot to write the stuff down. Anyone.

    I use tanning lotion also, its the two tube bain d'sol looks like a mentadent toothpaste dispenser. It works very well, but you need a base tan for the right color. It doesnt smell too good and you have to leave it on overnight, and too many showers or sweats will take it all off.

    There's a new process I heard on the radio where they air brush you in the salon. Sounded interesting.
