Is there a safe way to tan? | 180

UV light cannot be used to safely tan. The skin is harmed by all tans. Melanin production increases in reaction to the damage caused by UV radiation when they penetrate the skin. Many people think that using tanning beds is the most secure approach to get a tan. Many businesses promote their use of “safe” equipment. Indoor tanning emits radiation in quantities comparable to those of the sun, and occasionally even more so. According to studies, UV rays from indoor tanning cause DNA damage to skin cells. Indoor and outdoor UV radiation exposure over time can alter the skin’s texture and speed up aging. Over time, the harm grows and the danger of developing skin cancer rises as well.
