Airbrush Tanning Reduces Cancer Risk
Tanning beds are not safe tans. They can increase your risk of developing skin cancer; can also cause eye damage and immediate skin damage such as sunburn, irritation, redness and swelling.
The quest for a tan has sent malignant melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, soaring among young people. Malignant melanoma rates have tripled in 30 years among Brits aged 15 to 34.
In 2009 the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer division of the World Health Organization, classified tanning beds as "carcinogenic to humans" - the agency's highest cancer-risk category, which also includes radon gas, plutonium and radium. A person who uses a tanning bed increases by 75 percent their risk of developing melanoma - the deadliest form of skin cancer, which has the potential to spread.
'Tanning salons still tend to claim that UVA is safe but that's nonsense. It may be more carcinogenic than previously thought,' says Antony Young, an expert in the effect of sunlight on the skin.
Tanning without burning can still cause skin damage, premature skin ageing and skin cancer. Each time you expose your skin to UV radiation, in the sun or in a solarium, you increase your risk of developing skin cancer.
Airbrush tanning is becoming a more popular way to fake a healthy glow without risking skin cancer. Spray-tan salons are now using organic formulas and shades that are custom-matched to your skin tone. If you want a flawless, professional tanning application, head to a spa. Most beauticians are well trained in tanning course.
