Not dissing your point turrifield, just pointing out that "Before sunscreen" people had a habit of dying before the disease had a chance to develop. Sunscreen may well be full of carcinogens for all i know, but the answer to your question is, people didn't live very long, and also, they wore hats.

 

Personally, i tan quite easily, but burn if i overdo it, even in Shetaklnd, so i tend to wear a hat, or put sunblock on the tops of me lugs, where i burn :oops:

 

I agree people in the past probably did die before they developed cancer but the point I was making was that they would have been outdoors alot and would have developed a tan there fore would have been protected from sunburn by their tan.

I have always found false tans excellent, and much better than going on a sunbed. I have already had a couple of moles removed which makes me even more against them...

 

There are products on the market nowadays that are checked and tested, and do not go orange... if buying from net best read the feedbacks.. to see if people liked them or hated them...

 

The problem is..young girls are seeing all the female celebrities in magazines and on the tv, and they want to be like them, and if they are tanned they think that they want to be like that too ... but what they dont realise is that most celebs dont go to sunbeds ... they use false tans... i.e. st tropez and fake bake to name but a couple.

 

There are so many of these products on the market nowadays that you dont know which ones will make you go orange, or not... I have tried most...and the best I would say is fake bake... either the gel or the mousse. and as someone rightly said... remember to exfoliate properly first, and moisturise elbows, knees and ankles.... and go easy on your face with it, otherwise you will end up looking like dale winton. ewwwwwwwww 8O :wink:
