Sunshine is for enjoying, not tanning

Okay people of the world, explain this crazy shit to me.

People go to tanning lounges so they look brown enough to go on holiday.
You can’t be pale on the beach.

But people need to get a tan on holiday so they can show they’ve been on holiday.
You can’t come back looking the same as when you went away.

But often people don’t go out in the sun because it ages your skin and gives you lines.

So all year round people use fake tan lotion to look brown when they haven’t been on holiday, when it’s not sunny, and to avoid getting lines.

And most people who worry about all of these things are women.

Where and when did we get such weird ideas about the state of our skin?
