Sure!: Hey, I think this myself. It's a cultural issue. When I see teenage girls who want to be tan in my practice I say Go for it! But be sure and use the self tanners! They work great to give you the tanned look you want. You can control the color easily. They are inexpensive and you have no tan lines to deal with. Last but not least, you re protecting yourself from deadly skin cancer!
