Melanin pigment produced when UV light meets the skin literally enshrouds and shields skin cells in the skin’s epidermis, protecting each cell from getting too much UV exposure. AS the skin tans, the outer layer thickens (a natural process called acanthosis) which is nature’s design to make the skin naturally more resistant to sunburn. The value of a base tan, as any indoor tanner knows, is that it adds another layer to your sun protection arsenal.
Approximately one million indoor tanners said they were referred to a tanning facility by their dermatologist. More than three million consumers frequent tanning salons for self-treatment of psoriasis, eczema, acne, vitiligo,
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and to increase vitamin D levels. The cosmetic and Vitamin D related benefits of exposure to ultraviolet light in appropriate moderation far outweigh risks associated with overexposure and sunburn.
