The fairer folks among us that covet bronzed, luminous summer skin should perhaps reconsider their obsessions. While spray tans are a safe alternative, many folks still opt for tanning beds. If you’re one of them, consider one of these reasons to swap the tanning bed for the airbrush.
3 Reasons To Avoid Tanning Beds
1) The UV radiation so prevalent in tanning bed lights is a classified carcinogen. More than 419,000 new skin cancer cases are attributable to indoor tanning each year. Of this, 6,199 are melanoma cases.
2) UVA rays break down collagen and elastin in the upper layers of the skin, often leading to permanent damage such as premature skin aging, eye damage, and even immune suppression.
3) The risk of developing melanoma increases by 1.5 percent at each tanning session. Those who begin tanning before the age of 30 have an increased risk of melanoma to the tune of 75 percent.
