There is no such thing as a safe tan if it involves UV radiation. We all know that tanning beds cause skin cancer. So does sun bathing—prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. But, truth be told, there’s a hole in the ozone layer. The ozone layer, protects life on earth from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. The depletion of ozone means less protection, and thus more skin cancer.
Tanning beds use UVB radiation to darken the skin. Recently, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, labeled tanning beds “high risk” and carcinogenic to humans. In fact 20 minutes on a tanning bed is equivalent to spending one day at the beach! There’s nothing healthy about tanning indoors or outdoors these days.
To drive the point home I’m going to list the following risk factors involved with using tanning beds:
Skin Cancer: You face a 75% increased risk of getting skin cancer, including malignant melanoma when you frequent tanning beds.
Wrinkles: Tanning beds, like sun bathing, cause premature aging and wrinkles. Who wants to look older than their time? Don’t you want people to say, “She looks good for her age.”
Rough Skin Texture: Do you want soft and supple or rough and leathery skin? If you selected the latter, continue using tanning beds. If you select the former, practice safe sun and get a spray tan.
Broken Blood Vessels: The cumulative affect of sun bathing or tanning beds causes sun damage and broken blood vessels. Who wants that? Bottom line.
Practice safe sun! Ditch the tanning beds and get a spray tan. Our spray tan solutions are natural and enriched with vitamins that feed your skin.
