Do you tan on a regular basis? If so, do you miss it when you skip it? Research now shows that tanning can be addictive. Now that I think about it, it doesn't surprise me. It does seem like some people are obsessive about staying dark, and I guess this explains it.
It again makes me question, though; why does our culture regard a tan as attractive? This is the opposite of some Asian cultures. And I must admit, I feel like I look better when I have 'some color'. Women spend millions on makeup to make their face appear as if they do. Does our culture affect what we find attractive? If so, what does that say about how we choose who we marry and date? Would we not have been attracted to the same person if we had been raised in a different society?
