Tanning beds are lethal (my opinion)

I am 29 used tanning beds for years from i was 16 to 23ish maybe twice 3 times a week.in november i had melanoma removed from my thigh i was very lucky that caught it early.
I would advise you if you are using tanning beds or thinking of using tanning beds dont!!its not worth it theres plenty of cream tanning lotions out there that arent harmful for your skin.Anyhow pale skin looks good.

apart from dangers of skin cancer theres also aging.i know people who look older than they are because there skin looks like leather from bed use.

I agree with the above. Tanning beds are like smoking. They can and do cause melanoma and premature aging of the skin. It's not worth it in my opinion.

love the skin you're in.
