Now why do I bring this up here in this place? Well, because this place it the best starting forum to go and get an "unconventional" not the bullshit mainstream answer.

It is the end of October almost and both my wife and I still have our summer tans. Other reported symptoms are cuts and sores that take abnormally long times to heal. In August we spent two weeks on vacation only to get about two days of it in real sun so almost three weeks of tan retention seems more than a tad weird. What is in the food? Change in the spraying formulas?

Anybody else notice this and is this a new thing.

The tanning thing is all about how high the UV factor is depending where you are on the globe.
I don't know know about how thin or non-existant the ozone layers are over the planet but when the ozone gets thin it lets in more of the UV rays and will then cause a higher tan or burn to form on the skin.
hope this helps.

Hi Minuteman,

It's hard to say without a lot more information, but I can give you a few ideas about the tanning and the reason why it lasts. First of all, you want to make sure it's not a drug reaction. Certain drugs make people more sensitive to the sun, and also certain medical conditions like lupus or other autoimmune disorders.

The tan not resolving could also be a need for antioxidants, especially Vitamin C, since vitamin C is needed for wound healing, so that ties in with your other symptom.

So there's the biochemical level, and then there's a spiritual level. The sun is a powerful spiritual force that is helping us develop the "I am" sense of higher self. We have to bring our own spiritual forces to bear to meet the power of the sun, so the sun is like a counterforce stimulating our development. That's why we're told to stay out of the sun, so that we don't develop the higher spiritual capacities.

We're going through a time of acclimating to higher spiritual forces, and tanning is a way of protecting ourselves before we're ready to take the "charge." It's a process, and not a linear one, so we all may be having some unusual experiences with sun tanning as we're going through this process.

When you had the sun exposure last summer, did you burn at the time? If it was a burn and not just a gradual tan, it might have caused an energetic trauma, that can be treated homeopathically.

Slow wound healing could also be a sign of hyperinsulinemia, so watch your diet for excessive carbs especially sugars and starches. But I think more commonly it's due to stress - the sympathetic nervous system on overdrive. When we're in fight-or-flight, the body diverts energy away from healing and growth, to meet the perceived emergency. Then it's gets stuck in the "on" position and doesn't go back to the relaxation state.

How to work with that therapeutically is another thing, but I hope that gives you some useful ideas.

-Karen

You're right, Karen, many pharmacuetical drugs as well as some foods will make a person much more sensitive to UV light. Lists can be sourced online.

This is in my area of expertise. Firstly, moist skins tans best and will aid in tan retention so use quality moisturizer with hemp seed oil after you shower or bathe. How dark your tan will get is determined by the amount of melanin in your skin. Your tan will fade a bit everyday that your skin is not being exposed to UV by way of washing, friction on your skin from getting dressed/undressed and rolling about in bed. The golden rule of smart tanning is 'Don't Ever Burn' because burning your skin repeatedly over the years can lead to complications or even skin cancer. You can learn more about tanning your skin at www.tanningtruth.com www.smarttan.com and www.tanawareness.com

Research has also recently discovered that women dramatically reduce their risk of breast cancer by getting Vitamin D from controlled indoor or outdoor UV exposure.

Hope this helps.

for the input. I'm 53 and neither I nor my wife have done anything different like taking meds or changing suppliments. I live north of Boston and love to get out in the sun but most of the month of August was overcast and dreary. I bring it up because it is a change we don't understand. The biggest change is that my ozone maker died.

UV can penetrate cloud cover but the index won't be as high as with a clear sky.
