    It's just Vitamin D that you get from the sun, but Vitamin D does help you absorb Ca from the gut into the bloodstream.

    Re: Conan's Pale Force
    When I first saw that cartoon thing of his I absolutely couldn't stop laughing!

    The guy who does the skits with him is Jim Gaffigan. They have "Pale Power" and use their paleness to fight crime. They have a "Legion of Pale", a "Shade Cave" and I think there was something about eating Wonder Bread? Seriously, I don't know how they come up with skits because they are off the wall.

    My father in law had cancer years ago and went into remission and since he started tanning (he opened a salon for a family member), ever since he has been tanning he has been able to stop his shots competely. He was having to take several shots each month just to keep him going, his blood levels were always out of wack and even though the two may not be related it is weird.

    Thanks, xoxo. I love dogs too! I love your seal and polar bears. Animals are the best!

    greeneyedbeauty-That tanning connection is weird! Sorry to read about you father-in-law but I'm happy he's doing better now.

    I am pale and when I do tan, I just get a little glow if you can even call it that. All the fake tan stuff makes me turn orange and I just turn out even worse. I think that naturally pale people are fine and look good. But I do think a golden tan looks good too, and I would love to have it!

    I hit the tanning beds quite regularly, I'm afraid. Where I live, we don't have a lot of opportunities to bake in the sun. I know the beds aren't the safest alternative, but admit I go as much for the relaxation time as I do for the tan.

    me too. I can tan because of my olive skin but i dont go outside long enough to do it. And i'm not someone who enjoys just lying in the boiling hot sun all day. In the past i've done so, and slathered myself in baby oil- that stuff burns, but makes you brown if you can go brown, thats for sure!

    Here where I live I have to be doing something outside. I can't just lie there and bake. It's very humid here in addition to the heat and it just saps you of all energy. On the beach in Miami is another story. In general I don't feel the heat the same way there even when it's just as hot. I credit the sea breeze. Very relaxing.

    My skin is light, but I tan very easily. I prefer my skin in the summer, when I'm tanned. It's just too pale in winter.

    I am very fair and my skin is very weird--i can be outside for hours sometimes and not get ANY color but other times i can get a burn just from driving in my car to work. My face burns soo easily though and i always wear sunblock. My nose gets so burned even with block that it swells. Even fake tan on my face makes it look dirty. I don't mind being pale but i hate the look of pale legs in shorts and skirts so i used fake tan. I have all the risk factors for skin cancer and i have had soo many blistering sunburns i feel it's just a matter of time before i get cancer. Thankfully i don't have many moles.

    it depends on the person really, whatever is natural to you. so if your naturally dark then a tan looks good but if your naturally fair and then you go out and force a tan i usually dont like it as much. just be true to yourself basically and then you should always look your best

    I def look better than. I have olive skin, so if im pale i do look sick. I also tan really fast. If Im really pale and lay out an hour a day for 3 days I will look like I spent a year in St Barths. I also feel better too. The sun really isnt as terrible is people make it out to be, sure prolonged exposure is serious and there are bad UV days where its best to stay inside, but on a regular basis Ive heard every day, 20 minutes of direct sun exposure, is actually very healthy for the average person. But I do believe is varies based on your skin type

    Actually that little bit of sun we get every day does take its toll--thats why they tell everyone to wear sunscreen year round, every day, even on cloudy days & during winter. But if you have naturally thicker/darker skin you can probably sustain a little more before noticable damage.

    Go out and get your sun but always use protection!!! lol
