Why That Indoor Tan May Not Be Worth the Risk

Wearing sunscreen is an important part of skin cancer prevention. As this video points out, avoiding indoor tanning beds is also key for protecting your skin.

Cancer care experts caution the public to minimize sun exposure because of UVA and UVB rays, which can damage the skin and contribute to melanoma and other forms of skin cancer. What some individuals may not realize is that indoor tanning beds emit the same UVA and UVB rays, and can be just as dangerous to the skin as lying out in the sun.
