Clothing, Tanning Beds and Skin Damage

Clothing: Clothing does not provide adequate protection against our sun's damaging rays. A T-shirt, for example, provides an SPF of 8. Therefore, use sunscreen all over your body, not only on the uncovered parts of the skin.

Tanning Beds: Every 10 minutes spent in the tanning bed equates to four hours sun exposure. Your skin is not immune to damage in tanning beds. Therefore, if you are using a tanning bed to protect your skin from damage, it's not working!!
