I love to tan. Yes, even the bad cancerous 12-noon type of tan. There's nothing like lounging in my bikini, poolside all day to achieve a flattering bronze, which not only makes me look more exotic, but magically makes me look about five pounds lighter as well.

However, as I started reading more and more about the possible wrinkles, age spots and discoloration that I may start to develop from continued intense sun exposure, I sadly bid my favorite past-time goodbye.

At a ModelCo event a few months ago, despite my usual bad luck, I won a raffle to get tanned by their Chief Makeup Artist, Bianca Valerio, naked. Despite my initial prudish reaction, I decided to give it a go. Besides, what can beat turning an instant few shades darker sans the skin damage?
