This article talks about why tanning beds are bad for you.
These are some reasons why tanning in tanning beds are bad for you. Tanning beds can cause you to age three times as fast than the tanning out in the sun. Tanning beds can cause you to have age spots quicker and make your skin look bad after a short period of time. Your skin will start to get wrinkles and have a leather texture to it after using a tanning bed. You get this effect by over using a tanning bed. This looks really bad on a person. Once a person has reached this stage your skin cannot be repair itself. Most people will notice after a period of time of using a tanning bed they will start to get spots and freckles on their face. This is caused for damage from the tanning bed. Also if you are not carful you can harm your eyes if you do not protect your eyes with proper eye wear. The light that reflects off the bulbs are very bright and can cause loss of vision. When tanning in a tanning bed the tan you get does not look as good as one that you would get from the sun. The tan from a tanning bed looks fake and has a odd brown color to it that looks like a tan but does not really justify itself. The tan from the sun usually has a nicer and healthy look to it. The sun has vitamin D that is good for you when a tanning bed has no vitamins at all. Basically you are getting tanned from light bulbs that put out bad radiation to your skin. The sun does gives out radiation but the tanning beds is worse because the rays are closer to your skin. This increases your chance of cancer.
