I've been rubbing Johnson's Baby Oil on my arms and legs prior to heading out. Looking to cook my skin even more :D

I'm proud of my slightly ridiculous looking tan, and love giving anyone how rips the wee-wee out of it an earful about how it's been earned!!!

No matter how much I go out my legs seem impervious to sun - the only bit that changes colour at all is the bit between the shorts and my knee (and this is only by a shade or two), so I just have a faint 10cm strip across the front of my legs above my knee - the rest just refuses to change colour, most annoying!!!!

I'd gained one hell of a cycling tan but...... i've just been on holiday and ended up with burn't ankles, i just forgot about them still being that bluey white and didn't baste them in lotion. Prat

Amen. If you go to the beach on holiday, cycling gear must be brought along!
