What This Blog Is All About

Show off your tan!

Our slogan says it. We will tell you what you need to know, but it may not always be what you want to hear.

We have no qualms about warning you of the dangers of tanning. But we know that many of you are going to get a tan anyway, since you like the way it makes you look and feel. So we will tell you what you can do to lessen the dangers.

In light of recent advances in the scientific study of skin cancer, many of our older posts are now completely out-of-date. So that you can keep up with the latest information more easily, we are now publishing a monthly digest of articles about headaches.

Remember, it’s impossible to have a tan without cancer-causing damage to your DNA and without causing future wrinkles. For a healthy tan eat carrots and use self-tanner. Remember these simple tips:

  • Use broad-spectrum zinc sunscreen and reapply every two hours or when you get wet.
  • Add an extra layer of protection with a full-brimmed hat and sun protective clothing.
  • Avoid tanning beds!
