Dangers of sunbeds – Stay tanned – Stay Safe

The Dangers Of Sunbeds

With summer approaching (fingers crossed it’s not a damp squib) we want to look our best when we get the chance to show off a little skin. Having a little colour, beautiful, glowing bronzed skin always looks best.


Achieving that look however is a little more difficult in our (Scottish) climate, when the sun tends to show up with the same frequency as a world cup. So how do you acquire this look?

  • There are many brilliant self-tan products in the market where you can apply yourself.
  • You can get a spray tan done by a trained professional therapist
  • Lie in the sun (when it comes)
  • Or, go for a sun bed.

Sunbeds Ayrshire

Now, the last two options may give you a natural tan (although we rarely get the sun in ayrshire) but the effects, & especially in the long term, can have a profound consequence to your skin and to your overall health. i will admit, back in the day, i loved a sunbed. i would go every so often, and i would top up if i was going on holiday, my hubby would follow suit and and grab a wee 15mins so we were not to pale for the beach. 

Sunbeds give out harmful UV rays which damage your skin and can make it look wrinkled, older or leathery (not a good look) The UV rays from sunbeds can also damage the DNA in your skin cells, and over time this damage can build up to cause skin cancer. Sunbeds can sometimes be marketed as a ‘controlled way’ of getting a ‘safer tan’. But actually, sunbeds are no safer than exposure to the sun itself, and the amount of UV people receive varies enormously too. And you have to think, is it really worth it, really? 

Sunbed Damage

dangers of sunbeds

Cancer Research 

IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) agrees there is sufficient evidence to show that using sunbeds causes malignant melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. They also conclude that sunbeds provide no positive health benefits. Sunbeds don’t protect against further damage from the sun. Modern sunbeds emit mostly UVA rays, but UVB rays can make up anywhere from 0.5-4% of their total output. These emissions can be comparable to the midday sun. And the amount of UVA given off can be 10-15 times higher than the midday sun.

The video below highlights what sunbeds are doing to your skin

Fake Tan All The Way 

Modern day self-tan & spray tan products have come a long way, and the majority (not all but most) out there give a brilliant natural colour.  You no longer have to suffer looking like an Oompa Loompa or that you’ve  had a casual affair with a bag of Wotsits.  With proper prep, application & aftercare you can look AMAZING, and keep your SKIN LOOKING YOUNG AND HEALTHY. Dont risk your health for a little colour it is simply not worth it.
