Is it ok to get an artificial tan from a tanning bed or booth?
One word of warning about tanning beds and booths. These induce skin tanning by means of Ultraviolet A radiation, which, though very efficient in tanning the skin without burning, still significantly increases the risk of skin cancer and is no doubt extremely efficient in causing premature skin ageing. Something that perhaps most people may not be aware of is that a tan acquired from these tanning units does not protect their skin from sunburn when they go out in the sun (since Ultraviolet B rays are responsible for sunburn).
