We'd hate for you to relive the past self tanning nightmares: your sheets turned orange, your knees looked dirtier than your son's uniform after football practice, and the streaks on your arms resembled highlights a la Snookie. But a new study suggests that a bad sunless tan could send you back to the tanning bed. (Don't do it!)
"Sunless tanning product can be successfully targeted for appearance conscious women as long as the product quality is satisfactory," says Jay Yoo, PhD, assistant professor at Baylor's College of Arts and Sciences, and author of the study that found those who place more value on appearances are more likely to use sunless tanning products. The fear, though, is that the same people may be inclined to hit the tanning beds if they aren't happy with their self-tanners.
