I have very white skin, and I can't be in the sun much, but I like to look tanned. My doctor-dermatologist recommends tanning products as an alternative way for me. He said it's much safer and the coloring process takes place only in the surface layers of the skin. Have you tried any tanning products for yourself?
I also just found out loreal has tanning wipes... they are like a butt wipe but with tanner in them and much easier to not miss places... again.. it just gives a light glow.. not a big tanner...
I'm super fair too.. I hate being SO fair.. even just one treatment and I feel better about myself..
I did a spray tan once.. which I loved but it was 45 bucks.. no thanks...
Try those :)
And wash your hands after you apply and nail beds :)
