Dark skin, a summer’s tan. Did you know that people’s brains are wired in a way that tan skin makes you look healthier, and more attractive to others. A great tan also makes you more confident, which is again more attractive. There are options to keeping a great tan year round, and some are better than others.

Doctors are now saying that one sunburn, even at a very young age, increases your chances of developing skin cancer later. That’s not attractive at all, and can be deadly if not caught in time. Brief exposure to the sun’s warm rays have many North Dakotans having all types of problems. I don’t think the sun has become more dangerous, but with more people on alert for skin cancer or Melanoma, people of all ages are finding out they have it. If you don’t know someone with skin cancer, you know someone else who does.

But what about the tanning beds, there safe right? Wrong, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. They say “whether you get it on the beach, in a bed, or through incidental exposure, it is bad news”. (http://www.skincancer.org/healthy-lifestyle/tanning) and tanning salons may not be telling you the truth. Tanning beds bulbs produce the same UV Rays that cause premature skin aging like wrinkles, lax skin, brown spots and skin cancer. They also have a study showing more cases of skin cancer are caused by indoor tanning beds than lung cancer cases due to smoking. (http://www.skincancer.org/news/tanning/international) Beds are out for anyone that is serious about looking good and staying healthy. What’s the solution? As the Skin Cancer Foundation says, Fake It, Don’t Bake It. In other words Spray Tans.

Currently, there are two ways of getting a spray tan in North Dakota. One has you exfoliate two days prior, go to your appointment and the technician “used lightly” uses a spray gun to mist you all over. Not bad if it’s your only choice, but good thing for you, it’s not.
