Hi all,

I was wondering how many of you use a tanning oil when you are on holiday?

I am fair skinned and used one once when i was around 14 on holiday and got burnt to a crisp. I think it had SPF 2- big mistake!

I am fair skinned and use a sun bed for 9 mins every couple of weeks to keep some colour.

Would i burn if the oil had a higher SPF? :rolleyes: I don't want to risk it but everyone else seems to get a good colour with one!

Thanks in advance xx

I used Hawaiian oil when I went Tunisia for a week and ended up with severe heat rash. I used factor 30.

The doctor told me the oil is what caused it.

Use cream on your top half and a higher SPF oil on your legs because they're the hardest to tan and you really don't want to get burnt so maybe try that x

I'm very fair skinned I have blistered in England before in overcast weather!. I have found my skin adapts the the weather as time goes on. I have a few sunbeds before I go on holiday to bring my freckles out and take away the Caspar look. Haha Then use 30 for the first 2/3 days then go down to 15 for 1/2 days see how your skin goes then use an oil with 15 factor. If your skin feels like it's burning then have a shower and apply a higher factor.
I hate having pale skin but I am what I am I suppose!!
Hope this helped x

I'm fair skinned and I use factor 50! It's best just to fake it ;)
