Thanks for posting someone useful.
I havent tanned since I worked at a tanning salon, but I dont think the tanning beds at the gym would be any good to use. Its a part of my membership so I wanted to know if anyone who actually tans, uses them.

Quoting Momma to L♥:" nope, my days of tanning are over.... I realized how dangerous it is and causes you to get wrinkles and what not, so yeah, no way! now I just stick to fake tanning, lol."


Same! I turned 25 this year and noticed tiny forehead wrinkles and I'd rather not make them bigger and more noticeable. I'll still play out in the backyard with my son for an hour and get a little bit of a natural tan but nothing excessive and no tanning beds.

Also to answer your question, my gym doesn't have tanning so I don't use it. I am kind of nervous to use any of the stuff - the pool, the sauna, etc. because of staph infections. I do my work out, sanitize, and get out, lol.

I have tiny ones by my eyes too but they don't bother me because they are the ones from smiling, but the ones on my forehead remind me of old man forehead wrinkles! lol. Seriously, I didn't think we were supposed to have wrinkles already in our 20s!
