Tan skin is damaged skin, and that’s not pretty. Tanning beds emit the same UV radiation as the sun. To avoid the wrinkles, ages spots and skin cancers caused by the sun and indoor tanning, stick with your natural, beautiful skin tone. If you start tanning between ages 18 and 24, you boost your risk of melanoma by 91%. For more information, visit www.mdanderson.org/sunsafety.
