No Such Thing As A Safe Tan
Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays damages your skin and eyes. There’s two kinds of UV: UVA increases the risk of eye cataracts, skin aging, and skin cancer, and UVB causes sunburn and can lead to skin cancer.
Damage from overexposure to UV rays can occur at the beach or pool, at a “safe” tanning salon, or any time you are outside in the sun. Unfortunately, that’s what your attractive tan is-damage. Freckling and sunburn are also signs of damage. In the long term, damage results in wrinkled, leathery skin and may lead to skin cancer.
