October 24, 2008, Newsletter Issue #164: Tanning Risks

Tip of the Week

Whether you tan at an indoor tanning salon using a commercial tanning bed or indoor tanning booth or you tan outside, there are risks that you should be aware of. Ultraviolet A (UV-A) light penetrates the deepest skin layers. Too much exposure may promote premature aging, including dry skin and wrinkles. Ultraviolet B (UV-B) light affects the outermost surfaces of the skin and is most responsible for generating a tan.

As with UV-A, UV-B to excess can result in skin damage -- sunburn. Due to environmental damage to the ozone layer, more and more UV-A and UV-B rays are penetrating the atmosphere and reaching the Earth's surface. This makes controlled outdoor exposure difficult. Home tanning beds and commercial tanning beds both emit UV-A and UV-B light in a more controlled fashion. People becoming educated about proper tanning techniques minimize the risks. By tanning you can further prevent sunburns and problems with the skin.
