Types of tan.

Just in time for the wrap up of the summer holiday season, we have the common names for the types of tan and skin conditions we see.

Oompa loompa: bright orange skin from a bad spray tan. Totally unnatural in colour.

Tequila sunrise: oompa loompa with a sunburn

Jar jar binks: sunburn on your back and shoulders but not your front

Sheeting: big pieces of burnt skin peeling off.

Skin fail: huge areas of skin that has just started to peel and come off leaving little gaps and a trail of dead skin over their clothes. The fallen bits are sometimes called ‘skin dandruff’.

Deep fried: sunburn so bad it leaves welts and boils, as well as scarring on the skin.
