Is using a tanning bed once a week bad?
Tips to prevent your skin from tanning:
How do I stop getting tan so easily?
Can you see results after one tanning bed session?
Usually, the skin will not tan after the first session, and the results only become visible after 3-5 sunbed tanning sessions. These sessions allow the skin to oxidize its melanin, darken the cells, and produce a tan. Lighter skin types may need a few extra sessions for the tan to deepen.
Tanning outside or indoors can have dangerous consequences. While often associated with good health, the “glow” of a tan is the very opposite of healthy; it’s evidence of DNA injury to your skin. Tanning damages your skin cells and speeds up visible signs of aging. Worst of all, tanning can lead to skin cancer.
How many times a week should you tan in a bed?
Unfortunately, even tanning once in a while isn’t safe for your skin. The “tan” you get is actually your body’s reaction to UV radiation. This means that your skin changes color because your body is trying to protect itself from these harmful rays.
