I use meds and acne treatments that say will make skin sensitive, but the sun still doesn't bother me, fortunately. I tan easily.
I also feel and look so much better when I have some color. I have used tanning salons occasionally -- I prefer the 10 minute standing ones -- but will weigh in that the tanning sprays are really good now and easy.
I love the Neutrogenia mist ones, and I use a Clinique face lotion. The color is very natural on me. Clarins is the best, but pricey. I have friends -- usually older ladies who remember Q-T-- who say they can't use them, still.
