    I know the answer already ... But is there there any way that tanning is good for you ? please god! lol

    I stopped tanning for the obvious reasons and when i did, my skin changed some how (Obviously I was a little lighter). But it just looks different. I cant quite explain it. but man do i wish being tan all year icon_cry.gif

    So again is there any evidence you know of that says tanning is ok ?

    I don't know any evidence but as a personal belief - sparingly works fine. Only when it's Thanksgiving and Christmas will I tan myself more then once every two weeks. And when it's not, it's sometimes months between. It really depends on the person - someone who is naturally pale - usually from the northern European nations will be more open to damage then someone whose from Italy or southern countries.

    Like smoking: I honestly don't think having a cigarette once or twice a month is going to fuck your lungs up. I really don't. Same thing with tanning. Everything is bad for you in excess.

    Vitamin C facial lotion may give you the glow you're looking for, and it will keep you young and fresh faced for longer.icon_smile.gif

    I know that excessive sun exposure isnt healthy, but I cant get enough of that natural vitamin D. I just try to always where block and moisturize and use repairing creams to help my skin.

    Apparently the UVA and UVB bulbs in tanning beds helps people control or get rid of eczema. I used to have a small patch of eczema in the pit of my chest, but I would notice it would go away after a tanning session (either in a tanning bed or in the sun).

    Also, the lamps in hospital operating rooms are UV lamps which are germicidal. They won't give you a tan, but its known to help sterilize/kill germs - which may have something to do with why tanning beds help with eczema.
