    Fake tan that you put on yourself like the gel or cream normally dosent have any side effects, but you could have an allergy towards it. But the pills that you can take to get a fake tan can have bad side effects such as dizzyness and sickness.. X

    No fake tan doesn't really have any side affects like sun beds do or actually tanning in the sun. But there is a possibly that you can get a blood poisoning from the sunless tanner because the skin and pores absorbs then tanner basically staining your skin and there is a chance that it can go into your blood stream or infect your pores.

    But that is very highly unlikely, my sister uses fake tanner all the time because she is very conscious of skin cancer and shes never had a problem with it.

    Hope this helps!!

    Best wishes!!

  • No.

    The best way to apply is to shave/ exfoliate (pay attention to elbows knees and ankles) then use a light moisturising body wash to cleanse. Use a pad to put it on - so it goes on evenly, and the best type is a mousse. It's light but effective - following this will help you to avoid the orange streaky look favoured by so many teenage girls. :D

    Good luck.

    Erin - re-read the question - duh! lmfao.

    Edit: Amanda, it's a chemical reaction with the top layers of you skin, it doesn't go near your blood!!! - which is why it "fades" or, more specifically, your skin sloughs off and it goes.
