With the summer season right around the corner, some of you may be considering a suntan. While you may be familiar with tanning beds and traditional tanning methods (i.e.: hitting the beach), a suntan isn’t really the most ideal thing for your skin. Sure, teenagers will soon be looking to glam up for prom but perhaps going “au naturale” may be a better option.
A Miami dermatologist will tell you that whether you opt for a tanning bed or setting up a towel and enjoying the Miami Beach ambiance, both methods increase the risk of developing melanoma which as you may or may not know, is the deadliest form of skin cancer. Basically any form of tanning damages your skin, especially if you have fair skin.
If you insist on getting a tan, strongly consider going for a spray tan. No skin cancer, no wrinkles and although it isn’t the real thing, your youthful skin will thank you in the long run.
