Patricia Krentcil, famously known as Tanning Mom on the internet, called people who didn’t like her, jealous and ugly. But she recently decided to take on the challenge of staying away from any sort of tanning procedures and tanning creams. She appeared after a month in a photo shoot in In Touch Magazine revealing fairer, better-looking skin.

Patricia used self-tanners like Jergens four to five times a week claiming she felt the need to tan all the time but wasn’t addicted to tanning . Patricia says, 'Once a doctor told me to stop tanning. But I didn’t listen to him. I wanted to be dark.’
Patricia had a habit of tanning since her teenage years. Evidence of her yearbook photos show that she was slightly tan at that age due to usage of tanning products. She proudly claims she was 'born to be tan,' but even so, for now, she 'done'.
The stories around Tanning Mom appeared in the news when her daughter’s teacher noticed severe burn marks on the five-year-old’s body. When inquired, the girl told her teacher that her mom took her to the tanning salon. This caused an ambush of accusations that the woman took her child into the booth with her. Patricia simply put forward that her daughter got sunburn and she never entered the booth.
Now after seizing to tan for a month, she says she feels weird and pale.

Autumn Nichols, a former college cheerleader in New Jersey would rather look pale than have skin cancer ruin her life due to tanning. She disapproves of indoor tanning salons because she has suffered a horrible cancer scare that put her off tanning. She claims that indoor tanning has recently risen to the front of the national consciousness thanks to Tanning Mom and the stars of reality television show ‘Jersey Shore.’
But the reality is, shoe leathery skin and wrinkles by age 40 is not attractive, so why do it?
