The “tan” look has reached further attention due to recent stories in the news and media. While most people who admit to tanning don’t go to the extremes seen recently, it does help demonstrate a few important points about sun exposure. Sun exposure, and in indeed, cumulative sun exposure is damaging to the skin. It does prematurely age skin and can predispose to skin cancers.

Second of all, tan and overly tan individuals do not look healthier than untanned individuals. Finally, if you really want that tan look, consider spray tanning as an alternative.
