Tan Quotations

I don't mind being pale. In high school, it seemed like everybody cared about being tan all year round, but I haven't really thought about it since then. I don't go to a tanning bed, and I get bored when I lay out. I put sunscreen on when I'm in the sun, and sometimes I get tan, but I don't really think about it very much.
Taylor Swift

I love the sun but don't have the time to get a good tan and keep it year-round, so I am a huge fan of tanning products.
Kim Kardashian

It was simple reality - most competitive tennis players in my day were privileged, spoiled, entitled and white. Also, many of them were beautiful, fit, tan and of good stock - great big hair and white teeth and long legs. Then there were the rest of us.
Anne Lamott

I always wear bronzer because I love the way my skin looks when it's tan.
Lauren Conrad

I know white clothing is supposed to enhance that summer glow, but writers don't tan.
Diablo Cody
