You know that feeling that everyone is looking at you and judging you for your bikini or for how extraordinarily white you are, that you almost reflect the sunlight? Yeah me neither.
But seriously it’s the beginning of summer, how am i supposed to be super tanned or have the perfect bikini 👙 to bring out the tan if i am super, ghostly-white anyways, and i do not get any sun in winter days? Get real people.
Well some of you might say, we have self-tans creams or we use that coffin-like machinery to get a tan. I used self tan creams in the past and i still do when i feel like it.But it tends to make stripes of deep brown lines on places i was not applying carefully enough.
I will never be on that tan machine. I am claustrophobic.
So that leaves me with the actual SUN-tan.
I could refer to it as sa-tan because it’s my worst nightmare. I sit for hours melting, literally, under the sun, sweating, burning, feeling so hot I could rip my skin of only to get home and see a tinie tiny tan line, and lots of red spots in places with no connection to each other. Is it my skin, I wonder? Am i a sunblock myself? Am I a vampire? Does the sun don’t like me anymore? Why Lord? Whyy?
Many people believe that using a tanning bed, booth, or sunlamp to get a tan is safer than tanning outside in the sun. But the truth is that just like sun tanning, indoor tanning also exposes skin toultraviolet (UV) rays, the cause of most skin cancer
No regrets here though:
But ok there are some great face tans too.
There are also dangers according to specialists: Research indicates that just one sunburn can double your chances of developing melanoma later in life. In addition, using tanning beds before age 30 increases your risk of developing melanoma by 75 percent. Occasional use of tanning beds triples your chances. Research also suggests a strong dose-response relationship – meaning the more sessions, hours and years spent tanning, the higher the risk of developing melanoma and other types of skin cancer.
Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for young people 15-29 years old. Melanoma is the leading cause of cancer death in women 25-30 years old and the second leading cause of cancer death in women 30-35 years old.
Research also suggests that the cumulative damage to skin cells can lead to wrinkles, age spots, premature aging and skin cancer. The United States Department of Health and Human Services and the World Health Organization’s International Agency of Research on Cancer panel have declared ultraviolet radiation from the sun and artificial sources, such as tanning beds and sun lamps, to be a known carcinogen (cancer-causing substance).
