Base tanning my thoughts
I have to hit the tanning beds before vacation and before the start of the spring/summer months here at home. I not only burn fairly easily but I also get a rash from being in the sun (polymorphic light eruptions is what the doctor called it). Certain tanning beds don't give me the rash and others do. Generally I need 6-8 weeks to build up a base that is strong enough to keep me from rashing and burning but I still always wear spf 30 or higher when going out in the sun. I figure I'm upping my skin cancer risks by hitting the tanning beds so I'd better be good when out in the real sun.
