Indoor tanning beds have always walked the tightrope between being safe (when taking the right precautions) and downright dangerous.
There are so many other options out there to get a beautiful bronze look. Technologies have advanced over the years, and new formulas have been developed. But tanning beds are still a prevalent method for many people who want darker skin.
Here are a number of reasons you should consider ditching the tanning bed routine:
1) You’re exposed to harsh UV light, involving a heightened risk of skin cancer. The U.S. Drug and Food Administration makes it relatively simple: Strong UV rays are known to cause skin cancer, and when you’re in a tanning bed, all you’re receiving are UV rays. Thus tanning beds increase your risk of getting skin cancer.
2) You’re exposed to many other risks as well. When you’re in a tanning bed, your tan is a harsh reaction to these harsh UV rays, so of course the skin is affected. The rays seep deeper down though, and can cause other problems like eye damage and weakened immune defenses. UV rays are also known to cause premature aging. Tanning is supposed to make you look and feel young and beautiful, not older.
3) With all the bulbs and circuitry, it’s simply dangerous. The setup of a tanning bed is risky by its very nature. You’re trapped in a box with harsh, electrically powered light bulbs. If the technicians aren’t maintaining or keeping an eye on the equipment, their beds can cause you injury. Add on all the precautions you have to take, and it’s just too much of a hassle.
