It's 100% official now...
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (iarc.fr), which advises the World Health Organization, upped the anty on its warnings about indoor tanning beds after this summer's findings were reported. The warning about using tanning beds and lamps went from "probably carcinogenic (cancer-causing) to humans to carcinogenic to humans".
The findings that were reviewed indicated that melanoma cancer, the most aggressive form of skin cancer, rates were 75% higher in those individuals who started using tannings beds before the age of 30.
Whoa, those are some scary statistics and like smoking, they are COMPLETELY avoidable.
If want a nice healthy glow WITHOUT jeopardizing your health, opt for easy self-tanning products like one of my favorites, Tan Towel. You may also want to consider using a bronzer such as PRIIA's Vacation In A Jar. It's easy to apply, looks totally natural, won't turn you a funky orange tone plus it's extremely economical because only a few sprinkles are needed to achieve the perfect color everytime.
One last word of advice- ALWAYS wear a daily SPF no matter if it's winter, spring, summer or fall. Whenever you're exposed to the sun, your skin is absorbing harmful UV rays increasing your chances of skin cancer and speeding up the rate at which your skin ages.
