USA Today released an article stating that, “A dramatic rise in skin cancer rates among young adults is leading health officials to shed light on the risk factors, specifically tanning salons, which women are more likely to use.” In fact, “according to the National Institutes of Health, excess exposure to ultraviolet light increases risk for all skin cancers. UV light is invisible radiation that can damage DNA in the skin and can be generated by the sun, sunlamps and tanning beds.”
Warthan Dermatology Center recommends everyone to stay protected, and avoid tanning beds. If you want to be tan for prom, banquet, or any other special occasion this Spring, use a sunless tanning product such as Tan Towels, which do not expose you for the harmful UV rays. Wear sunscreen everyday too!
