I’m 20 and addicted to tanning – I use sunbeds, nasal sprays and oils to get my glow, I’m not bothered what people think | The Sun
THERE’S nothing better than having tanned skin, right?
Many of us love the feeling of having a tan and will slap on some fake tan from a bottle from time to time to achieve a faux glow.
But one woman has revealed that she will go to extreme lengths to get her tan – spending her time sitting on sunbeds, taking nasal sprays and using tanning oil.
While fake tanning from a bottle is inherently safe, using sunbeds and nasal sprays come with their serious dangers.
The tanaholic is just 20-year-old and shared her tanning story on TiKTok under the username ‘mindurbusinessx2’.
She uploaded the video with the caption ‘My sunbed journey’.
