    Tried Google with no luck!

    I am wondering if suntanning on a sun bed tones up your skin?

    After 3 kids and always getting back to pre-pregnancy weight it has just left the front of my tum slightly lose on the skin.

    Luckily avoided stretchmarks, I am just left with this loose wrinkly bit of skin.

    Would tanning pull the skin tighter? Random question I know!

    I know, I am not a sun bed person. Havent used one since before the kids. But I have to admit I will sit out in the sun for ages.
    I just get sick of no matter how much weight I lose it will always be there! Maybe cellotape will do the job

    see this is it, I see these mums at school who you can tell physically are bigger than others, but always 'look' smaller than most due to being tanned! Strange how a tan does make you look slimmer.

    Beth, your healthy mate thats all that matters, and your lucky your slim...you could of course get fat to fill out the wrinkly bits lol x

    haha I have to say when im preg my skin looks fab!! Don't think I want to go through it all again though for just 9 months of nice tummy skin!

    At least from a distance you cannot see it. Will have to have all holiday photos taken by hubby about a mile away

    +1 dont do it!!!!

    Sun beds most certainly do help with weight loss, even with a full appetite

    in fact alongside fatigue its one of the best ways of diagnosing cancer.

    I'd waaaay rather tap a chick with a slightly flappy belly than a chick with horrible dry sunbed skin. Especially if you're blonde. I don't get why girls use sunbeds, it just ruins them.

    I'm guessing not

    OP, What a strange thing to ask

    You need to decide whether you want a white loose wrinkly bit of skin or a tanned loose wrinkly bit of skin.

    That's Gregg Valentino isn't it? He holds the record for the biggest biceps. But he is now known as the man whose arm exploded Link, not nice of his arm after surgery

    haha I am so greatful for that picture! I will not be wasting my money or time on the beds. Will just have to hope the firming cream I bought yesterday which is supposed to show visably good results within 7 days works!

    Transit yes it was a strange thing to ask, But if I didn't ask, I would always wonder.

    Tanning not only damages the skin, but also the collagen layer beneath the skin. So effectively it would make you saggy!
    Suppose that's what happened to that poor woman in the picture.
    Hate plastic surgery, but if ever there was a case for nip'n tuck, then that is it! Scary oO
