I am a 39yrs old and have 2 children. I have light fair skin and I went to a tanning salon to try to get some color before our family vacation. I went 6-8 times and was using a stand up tanning booth. My nipples/areolas have always been a light shade of pink and now I have noticed that my nipples/areolas have turned more light brown in color. I am no longer tanning but I am concerned that my nipples will never go back to their original pink color. Have I permanently changed them? I do know how dangerous the sun is and artificial sunlight is and can be even worse. It was something I did for a very short period of time but now I am afraid that I have permanently changed the appreance of my breasts. If anyone has any information or knowledge about this please respond. Thank you.
i tanned everyday for 8 months, and you do notice changes like that and it is 100% normal i was an idiot and asked the front counter lady and my doctor because i thought i had burnt them or fried them but apparently it is normal! it tans just like the rest of your body, so its something that should be expected!
