Looking into the news; not safe to use UV tanning

Tanners are torn between two lovers; get a tan under Mr. Sun or get the same with Mr. Cream. Tanners all want the same love, security, and lasts. A lovely golden tan through a safe method that lasts.

Basking under the sun does have its health benefits. Sun exposure increases the production of vitamin D and helps modulate immune function in the outermost layer of skin, called the epidermis

An example of a benefit of exposure to the sun is curing Psoriasis; a skin disease that causes red, itchy scaly patches. Psoriasis is quite common the light-skinned people. Natural sunbathing is not monitored in a medical setting like phototherapy. However, this can heighten your risk of sunburn and skin cancer. Treatment usually starts with a 10-minute exposure at noon with a gradual increase of 30 seconds per day.

Improper use of UV tanning technology will give you skin troubles. So, we checked the news, and here are what we easily found:

https://www.newswise.com/articles/tanning-beds-and-skin-cancer-heeding-the-call-to-action Newswise — New Brunswick, N.J. April 28, 2021 – There is substantial evidence that indoor tanning is associated with increased risk of skin cancer – the most common type of cancer nationwide according to the American Cancer Society. Skin cancer can be disfiguring, debilitating, and deadly, but it is largely preventable. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from indoor tanning (and the sun) is a well-established carcinogen that causes most skin cancers. Research has shown that even one session of indoor tanning at a young age greatly increases risk for melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. “Young people who use tanning beds prior to the age of 35 have a 59% higher risk of melanoma,” Dr. Hunt says. “Tanning bed use increases the risk of melanoma far more than sun exposure alone.”

She wasn’t a sun worshipper, but Griffitt admits that she would pop into a tanning salon before pageants, dances, and other special events. “I noticed a spot on my leg while my anatomy class was studying skin,” she recalls. A biopsy revealed that the spot was a serious type of skin cancer known as melanoma. Griffitt underwent two surgeries at UAB Medicine, which was the wake-up call she needed. “I haven’t stepped foot in a tanning bed or missed a day of sunscreen since then.” Dr. Hunt cites an article published in the British Medical Journal that calculated a 1.8% increased risk of melanoma for each tanning bed session per year.

The Skin Cancer Foundation this to say; “Fake, don’t bake: If you want a golden glow, consider sunless tanning products. There are many options that can give you a bronzed look, but you still need sun protection!” (https://www.skincancer.org/risk-factors/tanning/)
