What is the safest way to get a tan? What do doctors say ?
Most doctors agree that any tan is a form of skin damage. Dermatologists say no to any form of tanning while other doctors encourage getting some sun to stimulate vitamin D in our bodies and combat osteoporosis, depression and heart disease. Seemingly, there is no 100% safe way to get a tan. All we can do is get informed on the danger we are exposing to and make our best to decrease it. We all love to bask in the sun and most people look much better with a healthy-looking tan. But how many out there are aware of the hazards of sunbathing? Truth is the more we subject our skin to tanning the higher our risks of skin cancer which can be fatal. People die of skin cancer every hour. It is believed that UV rays from sun lamps and tanning beds just as strong as the UV rays produced by the sun. Teens under the age of 18, people who are fair skinned, freckled, have skin lesions, or light hair coloring should completely avoid utilizing indoor tanning beds and expose to sun as little as possible.
Tanning pills are not an alternative as they may cause internal damage. It seems that the safest way to add some color to your skin of all available methods, is to use spray tans, lotions or creams. However, if you simply cannot resist lying outside in the sun, make sure you always wear SPF 15 or higher to protect you skin. It is highly recommended that you use sunscreen on a daily basis as a moisturizer under the makeup. Moderation is the key in all things so try to avoid overexposure by any means.
