Are tanning beds as bad for your skin as sun exposure? Is there a safe way to tan?

tanning beds are just as bad as the sun. THe only "safe" tan are the spray on tans or the self tanners

Actually... tanning beds are worse because they have a higher concentration of UVA rays. This is worse because those penetrate the skin more and are the cancer causing rays.
There is a reason people call them death beds. Don't die of vanity. Slap on some spf and go for a run. You'll be browner and thinner.

tanning beds are infinitely worse than "sun exposure". They're comparable to spending 8 hours lying on the beach working on your tan. Neither is healthy. Spray tan, or get a tan by simply doing stuff outside- swimming, running, etc., with a sunscreen.

What SPF is recommended when working/running outside?
Wednesday, April 05, 2006, 3:36 PM
min 15, 30 is ideal. Many studies have shown those SPF 50 claims aren't so accurate. I'd personally find a really good brand at a health food store, or recommend one from Nutrimetics.

I've always heard that, anything over SPF 15 is essentially the same, because you'll sweat it off or wear it off before that much time is up, and you need to reapply anyway.

Honestly I use SPF like 70.. sometimews 85 if I'm going to be outside.

I agee with all the posters. However, a little sun exposure without sun screen gives you much needed vitamin D. Even if you drink milk and take supplements, 10-15 minutes of sun exposure a la naturale (no sun screen) is good for you. It is best to sun bathe when the sun is not as intense, before 10AM or after 4PM.

I only agree 1/2 with the last poster... I think its good 10-15 min outside but not just laying there.
