Now a little bit of background information if you’ve never used a sunbed before …
MYTH 1: SUNBEDS CAUSE MELENOMA … There is NO evidence that moderate use of a commercial sunbed will increase your risk of melanoma
MYTH 2: SUNBEDS EMIT UV 10-15 TIMES HIGHERTHAN THE MERITERRANEAN SUN … Sunbeds are required under European law to have a UV output the same as the Metiterranean sun
MYTH 3: NO SUCH THING AS A SAFE TAN … Tanning is the body’s natural reaction to gradual, moderate UV exposure. Burning is an uncontrolled, over-exposure to UV and must be avoided.
MYTH 4: AN UNSAFE SUN-BATHING ALTERNATIVE … Under professional supervision, sunbeds provide a specific UV dose in a controlled environment, avoiding the risk of burning. UV levels from the sun will vary significantly according to location, time of year and time of day.
MYTH 5: ANYONE CAN USE A SUNBED … Not everyone can use a sunbed or sunbathe. You need to check your skin type and for other contra-indications.
MYTH 6: NO BENEFITS TO USING A SUNBED … UV light is the most natural source of Vitimin D which is essential for good health … and people look and feel better with a tan !
MYTH 7: USING A SUNBED BEFORE A HOLIDAYWON’T HELP PREVENT SUNBURN … A few sessions on a sunbed before you jet off to a hot destination is a great way to help prepare your skin for the intensity of the summer sun.
It’s still important to ensure you wear appropriate sun protection in the sun and above all, avoid burning.
