Tan Still Working: More Details
E-mailed you last month about how Fake Tan is improving my skin [Fake
Tan is Improving Her P]. One month later and my front is virtually
clear although my back is still covered. Which is my proof that it works
(‘cause I can’t reach my back to apply it!).
different brands with varying success, best one I find is St Tropez (same
as Victoria Beckham).
mad. Can’t believe I am advocating this as a cure, but would love
to know if it has helped anyone else.
Response: Thanks for the
follow-up, Jo. Don’t say
that you’re advocating it as “a cure.”
Say, instead, that you're advocating it as a “treatment that
works for me.” Most simply
put, we think of a “cure” as something that makes the condition go
away. The “cure” is
applied, the condition goes away, then neither the cure nor the condition
need be bothered with again. A
treatment that works, on the other hand, is something — often some thing
and some process together — that, so long as it is taken, applied or
undertaken, thwarts the symptoms of the condition.
To be a cure, you would not have to continue to use Fake Tan once
it has gotten rid of your P. I
believe you are advocating Fake Tan as a treatment.
Let us know what happens if/when you stop applying Fake Tan. If your P stays away forever, I would be most happy to retract my semantic argument! ;)
Meanwhile, any other readers that are using or intend to try fake tan products, please let us know how your P responds. -Ed
