As soon as the spring ends and summer begins, the majority of tan lovers turn into tanning salons to get a sun-kissed bronze beauty. Just as the indoor tanning techniques like UV tanning beds and lamps became popular in these few years, their horrible consequences unleashed too. Apart from the general public, teens are observed getting into this activity at large. The problem is that the UV bed industry is coming to a dramatic end and turning into a dead business.
The reason lies in the fact that UV bed industry offers indoor tanning through UV tanning bed that is terribly harmful to the skin. The skin is the most sensitive part of the human body, which makes is highly vulnerable to breakdown and damage. The bronzing up tanning beds emit UV radiation that induces the high risk of developing skin cancer; squamous cell carcinoma, basal and melanoma.
Do you think tanning is that necessary that you would put your health and rest of your life at risk? What happens is that when the body skin is exposed to UVA radiation on a tanning bed, it causes the outer epidermis to burn. It further leads to the formation melanin, a pigment in brown color, resulting in the change of your skin color from light to dark. This production of melanin may get abnormal in nature and form tumors. This is when the skin cell becomes cancerous.
Furthermore, since the epidermis layer is damaged, the dermis is affected too. The dermis is where the blood vessels and nerves are, and in case UVA rays hit the dermis layer, you’re at high-risk of a detrimental immune system.
As per recent researches, it was found that every year approximately one million adults/teens are diagnosed with skin cancer caused by tanning. Not just this but the number of patients is increasing, not deteriorating. It is true that sun tan is dangerous too but keeping the possibilities in cue it can be concluded that indoor tanning- UV tanning bed is more hazardous and unsafe.
A number of organizations have worked out to create awareness about this alarming truth that had led to the gradual shutdown of UV bed industry. Nowadays people are more inclined towards using safe indoor tanning technique like the self-spray and lotion. Who would risk their life for the sake of bronze beauty when there are alternatives available?
