They used to say that a good healthy tan was good for you. It is however, not.The darkening of the skin is actually the cells burning or toasting. Nice thought huh? Too much sun can and does promote skin cancer which can be life threatening. Melonoma is a very dangerous type of skin cancer that if left untreated and checked can kill.
