This girl, for one. Clearly she hasn't heard (or doesn't care about) the news that tanning beds can cause cancer — and neither have the people in a new Archives of Dermatology study. Researchers surveyed 2,869 adults to examine who's fake baking and why they do it. Some findings after the jump.

Snooki from Jersey Shore is famous for her attitude, her hair, and her serious tan. Today she found a lot of joy in that last detail, enthusiastically tweeting, "My one love is SunLove! Sunlove.biz to look tan like me! Get Snookerized."
While I personally do not plan to be Snookerized any time soon, I do give her a big thumbs-up for changing her tune on tanning. Whereas she used to sing the praises of tanning beds, she's now pro-faux. Tanning beds can cause cancer, and the only safe tan is a fake one. If Snooki can step away from the UV light, anyone can. Glad to see her doing it.
Picnik is a cool program for editing and aggregating photos online, especially if you don't have a copy of Photoshop handy. But recently, they introduced a lady-geared suite of features called Touch Up that has options like Sunless Tan, Highlights, Teeth Whitener, Blemish Fix, and my least favorite, Insta-Thin. (Because, you know, we girls always want to be thin.)
I decided to try it because I find the whole photo-editing thing dubious; I understand that this stuff's an accepted part of our culture, but I'm just saying that I don't think it's so great for our psyches to worry about "perfection." To find out what my experience was like, just read more
If you make frequent stops on the Bella train, then you'll know that I'm all about safe sunning — which means no tanning at all. But that doesn't mean you have to lose the look of a day at the beach. While I love the benefits of a self-tanner, sometimes I don't want to deal with the smell of DHA combining with my skin's chemistry or the affliction of streak-mania all over my body. So, I've come up with a few tricks to fake a tan, all without the sunburn or chemical reaction. Check them out when you read more
'Tis the season for fake tans, and while I'm partial to bronzers and self-tanning lotions, I don't frequent the spray-tan booth. So I'm curious: Who among you has gotten a tan professionally sprayed on?
All the young Hollywood starlets fake bake religiously. Hey, everyone looks better with a tan, I'm the first to admit it - but these gals take a "healthy glow" to the next level. Who do you think pulls off this look best in the middle of winter?
