Tanning is Badding
The true cost of those trips to the tanning bed salon is premature aging and a 75% increased chance of developing melanoma. Everyone loves a radiant summer glow. A tanned complexion has become a common beauty standard in America. A healthy glow is great, depending on how you achieve it. A growing trend for quickly gaining a warm tan is the use of tanning beds. In 2016, the tanning salon industry grossed 2.6 billion dollars. Forget that, regular tanning increases the likelihood of developing melanoma by 75% or that 58% of teenagers receive burns from exposure to tanning beds. The temporary, radiant shade that tanning beds produce can lead to premature aging, which without costly treatments, can ruin your complexion for good. Studies have shown that bulbs using UV-A rays to create tans penetrate deeper into the skin, affecting more cells and causing more premature aging. Consider the future of your skin before you step into a booth.
