Q: Can I tan safely?
A: No. There is no such thing as a safe tan.
Production of melanin in the skin after exposure to UV radiation (tanning) is a sign of skin damage, just as sunburn is. Over time, the effects of repeated skin damage build up, increasing the risk of skin cancer (and causing fine lines and wrinkles too).
To look after your skin and reduce your risk of skin cancer, use a combination of sun protection measures every day.
It’s also important to be on the look-out for any changes that could be a sign of skin cancer developing. Check all of your skin regularly – not just sun-exposed areas. If you notice any change in shape, colour or size of a spot, or the development of a new spot, visit your doctor as soon as possible.
