You and George Hamilton.


Ok, big brother mode. I can't tell you not to get tan. I get it. I tan in the sun every summer, but tanning beds? Not healthy, and skin cancer is a lot worse skin condition to get.


Go outside, lay in the sun, do it the natural way. Your body will love the vitamin D it soaks up. Make sure to use sunscreen. I'd say gradually ease back into tanning just to be on the uber safe side.


Will your tanning cause an OB? It can in some people, and the only way to find out is to get a book, put on that bikini, and go lay by the pool for a little bit. Drink plenty of water, and if the guy from 4B walks by and smiles, smile back.


That first ob is usually the worst, so don't expect to go through that again. It's not common for them to stay the same or get worse.

There are TONS of conversations on tanning here - check out the FAQ section and use the search button so you can get everyone's experiences, but for the most part you should be ok ... Like @Sparks said, it's more of an issue with Oral herpes and even then it's not guaranteed to cause a problem - you just have to see if it's a trigger for YOU ;)
