In the year 2014, after so much bad press about fake tanning, you'd think the term "tanorexic" would be practically extinct. Not so. Despite the well-reported dangers, many still use tanning beds on the regular ... like 33-year-old Anna Taylor, who would tan for an hour every night, six times a week, for three years.
After more than 900 hours on a sunbed, she decided to switch to tanning lotion, but by then, it was too late. A year ago, doctors discovered a tiny spot on her face was a kind of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma, reports The Daily Mail. And she was forced to have a surgery that required excision of part of her cheek, which required 29 stitches, which left in their wake a huge scar from her eye to her mouth. So. Horrible.
