Teens Turn to Sunless Tanning
According to new research, about 10% of teens in the US use sunless tanning products. If you’ve ever been to a junior high or high school, this probably comes as no surprise. And while some people may question if teenagers should be using sunless tanning products, in reality they are a much safer alternative to other tanning methods. However, the study also found that teens who use sunless tanning products still frequent tanning beds and are more likely to get burned.
This study highlights the importance of education when it comes to sunless tanning. Although it’s a safe alternative, UV-free way to bronze your skin, it doesn’t protect you from other damage. Tanning beds are still going to be harmful, and if you spend time in the sun, you still need to apply sunscreen.
