Summer is right around the corner! You start thinking about slipping on that bathing suit 🙂 Everyone wants that Sunkiss Glow. Many people believe that bronzed skin is a youthful and healthy look but there are dangers associated with sun exposure and indoor tanning. UV rays are dangerous and sometimes deadly. A tan equals skin cell damage and that’s no joke.
You may feel pretty but you are doing serious damage to your skin and in the long run, the results may make you feel not so pretty.
#True Facts of Sun Damage:
*Weakens your Skin
*Accelerate Aging Process
*Most Serious one Skin Cancer!!
Sun burn is more serious than the initial discomfort felt – especially for children. In fact, one serious blister or sun burn more than doubles your chance of developing Melanoma later in life. Melanoma results from intense sun burns.
Did you know?
*There are now more cases of skin cancer from indoor tanning facilities than there are from lung cancer cases associated with smoking? Sadly, that is the case.
People who utilize tanning beds before the age of 30 increase their chances of developing melanoma by 75 percent. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, “melanoma will kill an estimated 8,650 people in the US this year alone.” Tanning beds also increase the likelihood of developing squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma by 2.5 and 1.5 percent respectively.
The solution is simple “DO NOT TAN” indoors or outside!
When you are in the sun, protect your skin. Wear hats and clothing that covers your skin. Use a sunscreen with spf of at least an spf 15 and reapply every thirty minutes. Always, always wear UV blocking sunglasses as sun exposure also causes cataracts. If you are of light skin and hair, you need to exercise even more caution out in the sun because you are more likely to develop skin cancer.
