The truth about sunbeds
For those of you using indoor tanning beds, beware that artificial sunlight can be as damaging to your skin and eyes as the real thing. In fact, artificial UV rays from tanning beds and sunlamps can be as much as 20 times stronger than natural sunlight. The proven dangers have prompted several medical organizations to advocate a ban on their use and some regions in the U.S. are considering or have already instituted a total ban of tanning bed use by teenagers. A safe alternative is self-tanning products that provide gradual and even colour. Look for 2-in-1 body moisturizers with self-tanning capabilities for a convenient and easy way to achieve that healthy golden glow.
