Warning Facts About Tanning

A fake-tan done well is flattering, but constant exposure to sunlight or tanning bed/saloons can cause more harm than not.

World Health Organization reports revealed that tanning beds are toxic. It's being misunderstood by most that tanning beds are safer than the sunlight. Those who start using tanning devices before age 30 increase their risk to melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, by 75%.

Any unprotected sunlight isn't good, because any ultraviolet light damages the skin's DNA giving you wrinkles, brown spots and skin cancer.

Wear sunblock everyday, even if it's cloudy. Use at least an SPF 30 if you're fair and SPF 15 if you're darker.
