Safe skin options
Hi there

Sorry for the dumb question but I don't know who else to ask. I have a light skin with a lot of moles. The sun just gives me freckles so I try to stay out of it. Is sun tannning lotions a safe option even to use over a long period of time. Have you ever heard of it damaging skin, causing permanent stains etc.

Dear Wondering,
Sun tanning lotions are fine to use - just remember that the quick-tans do not usually have sun screen in it and that you still have to put a factor 30 on if you go into the sun.
