I wernt to the doctor last year and he said I am low in iron and therefore anemic. it makes me really pale and it is hard for me to get a tan. I dont burn or anything, the sun just bounces off me. I wouldnt mind except that im so plae that it looks gross. Should I go tanning at a tanning bed for just a little while to get a little color to my skin so I dont look so sickly? Is there anything I cant eat or do to make the sun atrracted to me. (I've tried tanning oil)
I am not a huge advocate of tanning beds or laying out since they can age you, and cause sun damage to your skin, as well as cancer. I would use a self tanner. I dont know much about spray tans and the safety of the chemicals they use, so I cant give a recommendation for that...but self tanning lotions are everywhere these days. try one that is a lotion that builds up over a week or two. I think Jergen's has one called "healthy glow" it makes it less obvious that you are fake tanning, and you are not as likely to get the funky streaking that comes from an instant tanner. I hope your health improves, that is really what is the most important thing! good luck!
Eat more iron-rich foods.
