Why Wont My Legs Tan?!

Recommended Posts

My legs never get dark! I have been laying out at the pool getting my base tan on so I don't burn in Mexico and I am getting drak....but my legs are still so white. I have always had this problem.

 

Even when I would tan in a tanning bed (bad, I know) my legs would not get very dark.

 

I know other people that lay out and/or tan and their legs get dark! smile105.gif

I know, soesn't that suck?

 

It is supposedly because we exfoiliate them a lot by shaving, so we are always taking off the top layer (the tanned skin)

Martha....we are women. With that being said, unfortunately we get the shit end of the stick a majority of the time. My FI goes outside for 5 freakin minutes to pick up the damn mail and he comes back looking like he was on a 3 week vacation in flippin Jamaica! Me on the other hand...I lay out..and lay out..and go tanning (yes I know its horrible but I'm stopping after the wedding!) and still NADA on my legs!!!! I heard that the fattier parts get the darkest fast..which would explain my stomach getting darker than crap..and the top/back part of my legs getting burned..but does that burn turn to tan....NOPE! It sucks!!!

 

I think self tanner might do the job...but it always rubs off on the inside of my clothes..so I'm going to try the spray tan..everything gets tanned..EVENLY and it's supposed to last a week before it starts to fade..no dripping, or rubbing off either....however, it supposedly gets your palms and bottoms of your feet tan too...so like I said

Shit end of the stick...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
