Just in case you needed more incentive to quit using tanning beds (besides skin cancer -- HELLO!), you're about to pay more.
Like many other women, I feel like I look better tan -- healthier, skinnier, prettier. And like many women my age who celebrated their 20s in the early-mid '90s, I spent a good amount of time (and money) at the tanning salon. As a breast cancer survivor, I cringe just thinking about it, but I did.
Back then, I was likely addicted to tanning beds, much like the Jersey Shore reality stars, as I used to hit the tanning bed a few times a week slathered in some sort of tan "accelerator." These days, I slather on the sunscreen daily and, while I do swim outside and thus get color, I feel better knowing I'm not blatantly courting skin cancer.
