As the first official day of summer strikes, you start to become more conscious and aware of the way you look, or should look. Looking good, however, goes a long way and does not stop at dieting, getting fit, shaving, or finding that perfect bikini. There are many more aspects that tie into the idea of what it means to “look good”, or feel good for that matter.

Everyone desires that ultimate killer tan and that perfect bronzy finish, but what’s the best way to get that or even close to that. Whether you’re tanning in the sun, getting your glow on in a bed or salon, it is very important to be mindful of the dangers that come along with these toasting methods. Most people are aware that artificial tanning boxes have always been a major cause of concern because the UVA and UVB rays can lead to cancer. This type of exposure is very risky and typically exceeds safe UV limits, even though salons say that they don’t. Even just tanning under the sun has its own dangers, such as damaging burns, premature aging, skin cancer, eye impairment, and more.

Spending constant hours tanning is also a source of permanent darkening of the skin, creating a leathery texture, and dark spots. Some preventative measures that can be taken include using sunscreen, wearing hats under the sun to block your skin, and even trying to drink as much water as you can to keep the skin hydrated and refreshed. However, these preventative tactics only go so far and only “prevent” so much, meaning the risk of potential danger is always there.

Nowadays, people devote their hard earned money on costly high-end creams and ointments that end up overfilling their cabinets and more often than not, end up almost never getting used. Fortunately, there are more effective techniques for treating your skin, but first you must be aware of the issues that may arise from over-tanning and over-processing.
