Despite how our ancestors in the Renaissance may have felt about having skin like porcelain, these days, we don’t find that too desirable. So it’s understandable that people turn to all sorts of methods to achieve the perfect tan.

The thing is, when you have a fake tan, you run the risk of having a fake tan disaster. And when that happens, nobody wins… except for maybe the people who get to laugh at you!
