The Truth about a “Base Tan”

BTW, May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, the following might be of some interest to you.

The Truth about a “Base Tan” - SkinCancer.org - Sun Safety Tips for Memorial Day Weekend and Beyond :

"Those tempted to kick off summer by getting a “base tan” should be aware that there is no such thing as a safe, healthy or protective tan. The misconception that a base tan will protect the skin is dangerous; even for those who never burn, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation can lead to skin aging (including wrinkles, lines and age spots) as well as skin cancer. In fact, about 65 percent of melanomas and 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with sun exposure."
