Fact or Myth? Tanning booths are safe as long as they don’t contain UVB rays.
Myth! We know that tanning in the sun is unhealthy and can lead to skin cancer and premature aging. What about tanning booths? Tanning booth companies often say that they are filtering out the so-called “sunburn” UVB rays. When you go to a tanning booth, you’re still exposing your skin to UVA rays, which penetrate deeper into the skin and cause damage that can lead to premature aging and skin cancers. Protect your skin and always wear sunscreen!
