For years people have been told tanning is bad for you….Stay out of the sun! Wear sun screen 24/7…. There are so many rumors and myths that have been spread around about tanning, in any form. My question is, why did people in bible days live so long and they were out in the sun almost non stop? Regardless….
You are in charge of your own health and it is up to you to decide which is best for you. If you burn very easily and skin cancer runs in your family, then you probably do not want to start tanning, or if you do tan, limit it to only several times a month.
What is tanning?
Tanning is the process of darkening the skin through the use of ultraviolet (UV) light which can be obtained from tanning beds or naturally outdoors. For whatever reason, people exclude outdoor tanning from the fear they have of the process. The truth of the matter is that tanning can be dangerous if you overdo it.
The absorption of UV light is actually moderately good for you. It provides and promotes extra vitamin D production which is great. Problems arise when you start tanning too much. Excessive exposure to UV light makes you more prone to certain health risks such as skin cancer. But, if you follow the general guidelines of safe tanning you don’t have much to worry about.
For the next few days I will be reviewing several indoor tanning lotions that I was given to try for free. I will be 100% honest in my reviews. As with any beauty product, each person may have different results. I will be posting about MY results..Yours may be different.
:o) I like the stand up tanning beds that my salon offers the best. They only run for 8 minutes.
