Is there such a thing as a safe tan or is my only safe choice to get a self tanner product?
How Can I Tan Safely?
Doctor Answers (1)
Self tanner is your only safe option
A sun (or tanning bed) induced tan is your body's defensive response against damaging ultraviolet radiation.
The only truly safe way to bronze your skin is to use a self tanning product at home or to get a spray tan.
