Tanning beds and too much sunshine can lead to cancer. We all know that, or at least we should know that.But some of us don’t. Or at least we’re not putting two and two together. We spend oodles of money every year on sunscreen, anti-aging regiments and beauty products…and then get in tanning beds…and that just doesn’t add up.If you know anyone who has melanoma (or any other cancer or life-threatening illness), you know the pain and suffering it can cause. Wouldn’t you do whatever you could to prevent it to happening to someone else? It’s always heartbreaking when young people pass—but even more so when it could have been prevented.
Here is a few stories about young people whom thought tanning made them look beautiful but thier quest for beauty turned into a battle aganist melanoma.
Clare Oliver (right), age 26, died from melanoma on the 13th of September, 2007. Her death was just one of over 1,200 melanoma-related deaths each year in Australia. Just before her death, Clare wrote, “If I could go back and talk to myself when I was 19 I would tell that girl not to use a solarium…Subconsciously I did know that cancer was involved with solariums because I was aware of UVA and UVB rays. But when I was 19, I saw a cheap offer: ‘Buy 10 sessions and get 20.’” Megan (left) was just 27 when she discovered that a mole on her thigh had changed. Luckily, she got it checked out right away–and was diagnosed with skin cancer. Looking back now, Megan regrets not using sunscreen during those summers in the sun, but, she says, the tanning beds definitely played a role.
Just say no to tanning beds.
So how you get that coveted gorgeous glow? Easy. There’s an entire industry devoted to beautiful, UV-Free tanning. I know, I know. You don’t want to look orange. Thankfully, it’s 2012 and not the 1960s. Over the past sixty years since over-the-counter sunless products made their first big, icky splash, the sunless industry has come a long way! Sole Sano Salon uses a product that blends antioxidants, moisturizers and a beautiful golden color that does not streak and can be customized for all skin types to create that natural tan.
