Beach Bum Shows Off Their Lindsay Lohan Love

If you happen to be in New York City today and pass by the Beach Bum Tanning Salon at 239 7th Avenue, take note of their interesting bright orange accessory. The fake bake salon is showing their support and devotion for Lindsay Lohan — a valued longtime customer — by staging a protest and wrapping the store in an orange ribbon to speak out against her jail time. In addition to the solidarity ribbon, employees created homemade signs that read, “We love you Lindsay! Come home soon” to picket with during their “Free Lindsay” rally. Clearly, the business is missing her unwavering support (ahem, money) and those regular visits needed to keep up her perfect orange glow. But interestingly, she’s not the first starlet to gain support from Beach Bum during her time in lock-up, as Paris Hilton was the subject of the salon’s protest back in 2007. Poor Beach Bum. They’ve been the subject of two injustices this year: dealing with the tanning tax and losing out on two weeks of Lindsay’s visits.

The Tanning Tax And 5 More Reasons You Shouldn’t Be Fake Baking

The new tanning tax goes into effect today. And if you are upset about it, you shouldn’t be. Sure, it adds 10 percent to the cost of most fake bakes, but tanning is seriously bad for you anyway. If you absolutely can’t part with your brown summer hue, you can always go outside—because that is free. Or, you can spritz on some of that spray stuff for a nice glow. Alternatively, take a good, hard look at Lindsay Lohan and Snooki and think about whether you really are interested in getting that “weathered” look.

If the increased cost isn’t enough to dissuade you, here are you a few more reasons why you should steer clear of tanning beds. Keep reading »

With the July 4th holiday weekend almost here, it’s time to address the beauty issue that no one really wants to think about but is always a possibility: sunburn.

In an effort to save our skin from the terrible pain that sunburn causes, here are a few tips on how to deal with the blistering pain, before and after the burn takes hold. Keep reading »

Snooki Shows Off Her Sun Love

Really, it was only a matter of time before one of the cast members of “Jersey Shore” scored a tanning deal of some sort. With their penchant for GTL — emphasis on the T — and the brand-new tanning tax, the guidos and guidettes need a new way to keep up their perfect orange glow. The first to not only find a solution to her tanning problems, but also cash in on her addiction is Snooki, who fell in love with Sunlove‘s spray tanner. Obviously, the company jumped at the opportunity to have her “celebrity” face repping their brand, realizing the power behind her deep tan and diminutive stature. Now she’s displaying her cancer-free bronzed glow as the company’s little spokeswoman, touting its streak-free look and golden hue. If you want it, you’d better buy it now, before it sells out at the shore. [Beauty Blogging Junkie] Keep reading »

Keep reading to find out how to put a stop to this travesty. Keep reading »

The Deep Tan Is Officially Not Back

A recent blog post by Elle UK tells us that the deep tan is back. All we can say is ohgodno and pray that this doesn’t give an army of Snooki wannabes sanction to bronze until they’re black. So we have a proposition: Before you sit in the sun for weeks straight, or whip out the über-dark spray tan, take a moment to consider how much “tan” your skin can really handle. If you’re of the naturally olive persuasion, the answer may very well be “a lot,” and we’re ready to support you through the process of getting there. If, however, you tend more towards the pale and fair, consider a lighter hand in your bronzing, trendiness be damned. All we ask is that you think for yourself when it comes to artificially bronzing.

The study found that tan-oholics also use way more alcohol and pot than those who did not fiend for the tanning bed.
