Tan or Sun and Tan?

Summer is drawing closer, the days are getting longer and the sun is beginning to blaze hotter day by day. As the days get warmer, you find yourself wearing less and less and you become increasingly aware of how pasty and white your skin is after having been deprived of the sunshine over winter. Grab your bag, grab the suntan lotion and sunglasses, and get on this tanning business.
While doing tanning beds, using spray tan or applying tan developer are easy quick fixes, where is the fun in using them? They can be expensive, they can give terrible results, they are proven to be bad for you skin, they rub off on your clothes and bed sheets, they are rarely realistic looking, and none of them involve any social atmosphere or actually enjoying the sunshine. Where is the fun factor??

Tanning bed prices range anywhere from 6 euros for just one session to up to 400 euros for membership.While a sunbed starts at a slightly more expensive price from 20 euros and up this is for a day of relaxation as opposed to 6 minutes in a box. As well you can get packages which include drinks and food too.

The main question in regards to tanning that everyone asks is in regards to safety. So which is safer: sunbeds or tan beds? The answer is sunbeds. Tanning salons’ employees are trained to tell you that tan beds are “smarter” because they cannot tell you it is safer when it is not. Getting UV light directed into your pores while they are wide open is of course not safe but the                                                                                                                                                                                                  selling point is the “control” you have over how much exposure to UV light you are getting. However this is slightly ridiculous as you are getting a much higher concentration of the wavelength of UVA which causes deeper damage to the skin than being in the sun wearing sunscreen. According to the skin cancer foundation frequent tanners using high pressure sunlamps may receive as much as 12 times the annual UVA dose compared to the dose from sun exposure, and are 74% more likely to develop melanoma than those who avoid tanning indoors. However still nearly 30 million Americans still buy into this business, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation; per year, knowing that it is not safe.  
However if you get yourself a sun bed you get to actually enjoy the atmosphere of being on the beach under the sun, you can go with friends, your skin gets a chance to absorb some vitamin D, you get to throw on that swimsuit that has been hibernating for the past few months, and for a bit extra you can get a drink and some nice food thrown in. What’s more is when you book a place you are 100% guaranteed a sunbed! Ditch the tan beds and book yourself a relaxing day at a private beach. Take time out with some friends, chill out and get a natural glow. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!
