Did you know indoor tanning dramatically increases the chance of developing skin cancer?
Indoor tanning exposes users to two types of ultraviolet rays, UVA and UVB, which damage the skin and can lead to cancer. Exposure to indoor tanning, particularly in adolescence, increases the chances of developing skin cancer over a lifetime. According to a recent study, people who use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent.
In addition, indoor tanning causes premature skin aging, like wrinkles and age spots, changes your skin texture and increases the risk of eye disease.
