TANNING

Tanning outside or indoors can have dangerous consequences. While often associated with good health, the “glow” of a tan is the very opposite of healthy; it’s evidence of DNA injury to your skin. Tanning damages your skin cells and speeds up visible signs of aging. Worst of all, tanning can lead to skin cancer. 

There is no such thing as a safe or healthy tan. Tanning increases your risk of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Your best defense is to avoid tanning altogether.

Causes:

Tanning is caused by exposure to Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or tanning beds that causes genetic damage to cells on your outmost layer of skin. The skin tries to prevent further injury by producing melanin ( the pigment that gives our skin its color) that results in darkening – what we call a tan.

This damage is cumulative , starting from the very first tan.

Tanning changes and ages your skin

  • It’s a visible signal of damage that accelerates the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots & weathered skin.

Tanning Facts & Risks

Skin damage starts with your very first tan. Each time you tan, the damage builds up, creating more genetic mutations and greater risk.

Indoor tanning is dangerous: Tanning beds don’t offer a safe alternative to sunlight; they raise the risk for skin cancers.

Tanning damages all types of skin: Even if your skin type is not fair, tanning causes DNA injury that can lead to premature ageing and skin cancer.

You can easily reduce your likelihood of developing skin cancer by practising sun safety.
