I LOVE BEING TAN. ARE TANNING BEDS SAFER THAN SUN EXPOSURE?
SKIN SHORT: No.
MORE SKINFO: Tanning beds are as dangerous as the sun, and possibly more so because they emit predominantly UVA light which, in addition to the skin cancer and aging also caused by UVB light, causes immuno-suppression and other damage.
Instead, faux that glow by using a self-tanning cream or our new Tarte-à-Tan Antioxidant Bronzing “Coco” Powder (which is actually good for skin).
