I am thinking about tanning again (haven't intentionally exposed my skin to UV in a very long time). But I'm worried about skin damage. I saw a girl at the local library who was very tan, obviously goes to a tanning bed. She couldn't have been more than 20. But she had "chicken skin" on her neck and chest! I've seen that on folks who tan before. It's that pebbled look & texture of the skin. What can you do to prevent that other than not tan? Is it from overexposure or does everyone who tan eventually get it? TIA.

No, I am not sure what that is but I have tanned for 15 years now and tan regularly. If you tan in moderation and do not over do it, use good otions and moisturizers you will get a good tan and take care of your skin at the same time. Hope this helps.,

I have been tanning for years now and these bumps that i break out with are embarable! I itch constantly! I have tried all kinds of creams for itchy skin and nothing is making it go away! The bumps are mostly on my kneck and chest and somewhat on the rest of my body. I have been taking benedryl too and nothing is helping. I even take a day or two break between my tanning days. I own my tanning bed at home. Please can ya help me. I want to get just my base tan and I cant even get that right now cuz the bumps are so smothered on me.
