Jan. 26, 2010 - PRLog -- TO TAN OR NOT TO TAN

In California tanning is a regular activity and the smart women know if you want to stay looking younger and avoid skin cancer you would be wise not to indulge. Realistically, tanning is not so fashionable, in fact the beauty and fashion industry frowns upon tans.  If they need you to appear tan they'll spray it on!  This is the only safe way to tan.

More importantly there is no such thing as a safe tan, whether on the beach, or in the salon, you'll likely get burned.  Sunburns are always very damaging to the skin.  Imagine cooking your collagen (that's the stuff below your epidermis, which helps you look young and vibrant).  The difference between real sunshine and a tanning bed, is the advanced ability of the bed to literally burn through to your collagen level, depleting the skins ability to repair itself.  Ouch!

INCREASED SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS

Now there's increased scientific consensus that there's no such thing as a safe tan (okay tell us something most of us already don't know)!  Recent findings by The World Health Organization's cancer division (sounds official)  conclude that tanning beds are "definitive cancer- causers, right alongside the ultraviolet radiation that both they and the sunemit. "There' s no doubt for years tanning beds have been considered 'probable' carcinogens, but what tipped the scales was an analysis last summer."  Women participating in a study using tanning beds had a 75% increased risk in getting melanoma skin cancer.  The study included women in their teens, twenties and thirties.
