    Man I tanned obsessively in high school, hoping to bring out my hidden Italian / Now my skin is getting a little dry and occasionally flaky and I'm only 21 I told myself I would never tan again. Don't go out sunbathing, please, it will make you age faster If you are in the sun, use sun block, but not the regular brand you buy at George's Grocer, or Walgreen's. Get UV Naturals. It's all natural (no synthetic chemicals and preservatives).

    Its not that I want to tan at all, I just like doing outdoor things in the summer like swimming, going to the beach etc. I'm highly allergic to sunscreen and even sunblock, a dermatologist said that it is contact dermatitis or something like that. I've tried everything, it all makes me get hives. Its hell. The only place I'd worry about getting sun is my face, because that can lead to quick aging, so I'll just have to wear a hat from now on, nobody likes doing that though.

    There's supposed to be a nonallergenic sunscreen made from a company in Australia called Blue Lizard that you could look into. I was going to do this for myself. I was using Coppertone SPF 8 at the beach and it was causing contact dermatitis on my shoulders only, even though I was covered in it.

    Maybe I could get a free sample of it online to see if it works, thanks!

    Actually, it may even be more common in women. One of the reasons blonde hair has historically held such a strong sexual appeal is the connotation of youth it gives.

    Many, or even perhaps most, blonde women will see their hair darken somewhat after they've had children. It's a hormonal interaction. This isn't always the case, but as far as explaining why many blonde women become light brown, or sometimes even a darker brown as they age is largely due to having children.

    My hair was a rich, medium golden blonde....then.....I had my daughter at age 19. It darkened somewhat to a dark golden blonde...and the reddish undertones came back. My father, on the other hand, remained a super pale-blond his entire life

    And that's why there's HAIR DYE! Better living through chemistry people. Heh heh

    PS: Once, when I worked as a phlebotomist at a plasma center, I had this black dude tell me I was *way too pale and needed a tan* Of course, I got a little miffed by this....so my retort was....."Well fine....Let me borrow some of YOURS!"

    It was a witty comeback....and not insulting in any way. He just shut up after that one lol
