Oxymoron: "Good tan?" Nowadays, most of us are very conscious of the dangers of tanning, especially for fun. And if you're predisposed to freckles, you will have them show up on your face if you get into the sun. As one who's lost a close friend who was once a tanning buff to melanoma (he didn't see it on the back of his shoulder), I'd urge you to avoid recreational tanning and use sunscreen.
