What it is with some people (mostly girls, I have to say)? They hop on the sunbed to get a bit of colour (nothing wrong with that you might say, and you'd be right) but then suddenly something happens to them. They don't know when to stop. And they go orange. Someone needs to tell these folk, and I guess it has to be me, that it is not attractive. It does not look natural, we are not fooled. If you think you might be one of these people, try this simple test: switch on your TV and turn the colour knob all the way, all the way up. See the colour the actors go? Now look in a mirror. Do you look like that? If so then you have gone one segment too far. Another symptom that accompanies this condition is the sudden predilection for too much gel in the hair (boys) or the tying of hair in a pineapple-on-the-head style (girls). Yuk.
