Ever wonder how tanning even became a fashionable thing to do? Some of the blame goes to Coco Chanel. It used to be that women's clothes covered so much that a body tan was impossible, and a tan on the face and hands signified what it still does in developing nations - that the tanned person is an outdoor laborer, most likely of low social status. Lily-white skin remained a sign of a lady even after industrialization, but legend has it that when Chanel was accidentally sunburned during a trip to the Riviera and developed a tan from the burn, her new hue took hold among the fashionable as a symbol of all she herself embodied: modernism, luxury and independence.
If you don't want to get over your love of the tanned look, don't despair - self-tanners today are so good that you can still have all the glow without any of the risk!
