Why do people tan?

What's wrong with white skin? Why risk skin cancer from harmful rays? (This is a serious 나귀, 엉덩이 question)

Especially is 'white' is so great.

But anyways, I know better than to argue with 당신 so Imma go back to enjoying my Thanksgiving break rather than a "higher than thou" personality.

And if anything, we can say its a racial issue WITHIN beauty standards but eh. The beauty standards issue is a huge and messed up thing in its own and I feel tanning is among a low low low priority on the list compared to the unrealistic body shapes and how it is a partail cause for the amount of anorexics in the world

There's nothing wrong with white skin and sure, the risk of skin cancer always exists within those rays. Still, those doesn't have to do much with why this happens. At least from my point of view.

As a person who has tanned, I could say it's out of aesthetic. A personal preference. No different from someone applying make-up 또는 dying their hair even though they might still look great in their natural color. Some experiment with themselves. Others just feel like it more. Depending on the person, they could draw 더 많이 attention to themselves this way. In overall, it can make them feel better. A natural tan will go away after a short amount of time so it's not like someone made a permanent choice with no way back that they'll come to regret. In the end, it's all about one's style, I believe.

That being said, there are also those who didn't have any choice in the matter. For many people, the nature of their jobs for example makes contact with the Sun's rays unavoidable. Something that can last for an extended period of time hence they get their own tans albeit unvoluntarily. Honestly, try to come in my Country for the Summer and I can guarantee 당신 that you'll leave with a certain amount of tan UNLESS 당신 hole up yourself in some close 우주 for the whole duration of it 또는 wear multiple layers of heavy clothing LOL !!!!

It may be because some people enjoy the warmth of the summer sun. 또는 because some may want a nicer-looking body, either for themselves 또는 to look 더 많이 attractive to others. I use to get into tanning a few years back, but now I don't really care. I don't mind pale skin, as long as it's not sickly pale to the point where it causes health issues.

I dont think it REALLY has much to do with them not liking white skin as much as it is their personal preference, hobby, etc.

Personally I dont see it as much of a big deal cause I dont really see people getting rude 또는 cruel over people that dont nor do I see people trying to force people to tan so... *shrugs* Who am I to judge what they do for fun?

PERSONALLY, I 사랑 pale skin and my usual pale complexion. I mean I loose it during heavy marching seasons cause those take place between summer and fall so the sun is harsh and we are out a lot so I naturally tan AND burn, but I usually actually try to keep my skin color 더 많이 pale - probably for the same reason as those that like to tan. They probably find it 더 많이 of a suiting look for them and its something they like on themselves

Plus I imagine it must be pretty nice and relaxing to just sunbathe. I dont really know how to relax that well and feel comfortable with it but if I could slow myself down and didnt like being 더 많이 pale, then Id honestly consider it. The sun feels nice when the weather is good and just sitting 또는 laying in the sun could be pretty relaxing I think

Not to say there is anything wrong with tanned skin 또는 dark skin. I just think its something I like on myself. Also I dont actually ACTIVELY avoid tanning 또는 having my skin darken. I dont care that much but if I were given the choice, I would prefer keeping my skin 더 많이 pale.

This is what I’ve heard. I can’t speak on its accuracy but it makes sense to me — It started as a sign of wealth/luxury for white people (around the industrial age I think?) - if 당신 were tan, it meant 당신 could afford to take vacations rather than be inside working all day. Before this, pale skin was desirable for the exact same reason. If 당신 were tan, it meant 당신 were outside working but if 당신 were pale it was a sign 당신 were wealthy enough to lounge around indoors.

There are people who are insecure about their looks and there are people who like to change theirselves just because they want change 또는 like their new selves better. It depends on the person why they want tan skin

A little bit of tanning helps to keep the skin healthier. But too much tanning will do the opposite. The ones who tan excessively are either addicted to it 또는 just can`t get any tan when doing it moderately and want to become darker, I guess.

- Naturally tan just 의해 being outside without trying.

- Ephasises muscles, desirable for fitness community

- Vitamin D

- For entertainment (dancing/stage) The lights are very bright and will wash 당신 out, so tanning is common in dancesport for white lights to not wash them out.

- Personal aesthetic preferences

Nothing is wrong with white skin. I like my pale skin. But as I wear lighter clothing in summer I gradually tan over the weeks.

You're only risking skin cancer if you're being careless with sun exposure. Wear sufficient sunscreen and 당신 shouldn't burn, but will gently tan over time. That's just natural.

As for tanning beds, I wouldn't do that but if people choose to do such things for aesthetic purposes then that is their choice, that doesn't bother me.

Can't speak for everyone but o tan because I'm simply outside a lot. It happens naturally in the summer because I simply like being outside and at the 바닷가, 비치 and stuff. And 9/10 I'm too lazy to apply sunscreen.
