You should wait several months post tane to tan by sun or tanning bed. Your skin is very sensitive and it's been described as being *paper* thin during this treatment. I want to tan as well but I don't want to risk ruining my skin. Tans don't last so long, maybe a week, two weeks. You'll want to take care of your skin. Why don't you try Mystic Tanning or some sort of spray tanning done professionally in the salon. These tanning systems enhance the natural melanin in your skin. That's what I'm going to do! I've seen people that used this method and it looks both great and natural. Good luck. :)
