Tanning Beds = Horrible

So as I've stated in a previous post, I haven't been in a tanning bed in quite some time. I used to work at a tanning salon and loved to tan was obsessed with tanning every. single. day. I. could. I was darker than any of the other girls I worked with and I loved it. It wasn't until I stopped working at the tanning salon did I realize how horribly bad it was for your skin. I can honestly say that I have a few fine lines which I believe came from tanning so much. Recently I've seen this lady on the news (I'm sure we've all seen her by now) and this is a prime example as to why I stay away from tanning beds now and am a believer of self-tanning. When you tan in a bed or in the sun it prematurely ages you. You may think that you look good now, but trust me, the more you tan the faster wrinkles will appear and the more your skin looks like leather. Also, you are a hundred times (well, I don't know if it's really a hundred but...) more likely to get skin cancer. You can essentially DIE from tanning people! It's not safe. My recommendation for everyone is to try safely tanning by using a self-tanner or going to get a spray tan. This way you can look good and not have to worry about wrinkles or skin cancer. Here are a few pictures I found for encouragement. :)

Cute. real cute.

My thoughts exactly...
You know I couldn't talk about this without having Snooki in at least one of the pictures

    1. Well, there's really no such thing as a safe tan. The UV rays from the sun and from the tanning beds are both bad for your skin. It can cause premature aging and melanoma/skin cancer. Thanks for your comment. :)

  3. Tanning beds disasters. I thought these are banned already (in some states).

  4. Actually, yes both are prejudicial... I think the tanning beds even more. But you don't have to avoid the beach and the sun as long as you're protected right! And that doesn't just mean a high SPF, there's a lot to know about sun and protection but you can indeed fight that premature aging - when you see an anti-aging sunscreen it doesn't mean it's just for older people, it's for everyone, to stop that premature aging. It's not 100% but it's really high. So tan, but be safe!

  5. EXCELLENT! I work in Dermatology and have seen many of these photos already. Shocking isn't it? You would be equally as shocked to find out how many people still use tanning booths despite being warned. ..very unfortunate.

    1. Yes, it is unfortunate. I've seen girls come out of tanning beds with the most leathered looking face. They look at least 10 years older and they've just started tanning! It's sad and I regret tanning as much as I did.
      Thank you for your comment! :)
