Fake Tanners: What Is It About A Fake Tan That Appeals To You?

Postby amoz76 » Mon Jul 10, 2017 3:18 pm

This is a question that I pose to people who get spray tans.


Obviously there's the whole 'Because it won't give me skin cancer' thing, but spray tans look completely different to sun tans. So I ask my questions with that fact in mind. For example, a sun tan looks natural, (generally) even and nice. Whereas a spray tan looks artificial, uneven and obvious.

What is it about a spray tan that appeals to you and makes you want to keep getting one?

What is it about a spray tan that you think appeals to other people? (As in, on you.)

Have you ever had someone tell you that you look don't look nice with a spray tan?

As a pale redhead, I've asked this question before.

Most of them said because it makes them look healthier.


But I think it goes something like feeling prettier. Girls think that guys like tan girls...and most of them do in my experience. So they think that if they get a spray than, they will be more appealing to men. And I would guess that they pick a spray tan because they don't have time to go out and get a real tan.


I remember getting highlights in 9th grade because everybody was getting highlights. It made me feel prettier and I got attention and compliments from them.


Maybe that's why the do it....for attention.

I don't know I have seen some people who can look good with a spray tan. But my friend got one and..well it looked unnatural. Like with a real tan the inner part of your arm doesn't get tan but a spray tan makes it tan. And you can just tell it's fake. But I think if you get a really good spray tan it could look good. It just depends where you get it and if it's in a booth or if a person does it for you. I personally have never had a spray tan before. And I also have never been to a tanning bed either. But I do tan a lot in the summer if I go outside a lot :)

There are no fake tans that are appealing. They're all oompa loompa gross
