Consequences Of Indoor Tanning?

For a tanning technique that offers absolutely no health benefits, indoor tanning is quite popular. Some studies have shown that tanning in tanning beds can become an addiction. The truth is that indoor tanning is dangerous. The cons of indoor tanning include exposure to ultraviolet radiation levels several times greater than natural sunlight offers. Skin cancer is often the result. Some tanners have experienced eye damage including burns or cataracts in addition to premature aging. It is generally recommended that those who enjoy tanning lay out in the sun rather than use tanning beds. Yes, tanning beds offer a quick solution to unwanted pale skin, but there are real dangers involved.

How dangerous is indoor tanning if you have been tanning and just found out you are pregnant?

In a tanning bed, the ultraviolet rays enter your body and reflect off of each other (similar to a microwave). Hopefully everything is alright, but I would not continue tanning for the duration of your pregnancy. Indoor tanning is VERY DANGEROUS at the best of times. The harmful rays damage your skin. Stop the tanning immediately. If you haven't over done the tanning sessions, everything should be ok. NO MORE...

How soon do you apply indoor tanning lotions?

This is a very popular question and I'll explain why it's better to apply indoor tanning lotions before tanning. Most indoor tanning lotions have some type of moisturizer in them. Moisturizers help protect your skin because they keep moisture inside your skin that would generally be lost due to the excessive heat inside the tanning bed. Applying lotions before entering the tanning bed at least 15 minutes before tanning allows those moisturizers and vitamins like vitamin E enough time to soak into your skin. If you apply tanning lotion right before entering the tanning bed your skin may not have enough time to soak up all of the moisturizers and UV protection before tanning which can have adverse effects on your skin.
