There was a day when the harsh winds and cold temperatures of Winter were forgotten for a portion of your day as you would go to your favorite tanning salon and work on that off-season tan in the warmth of a tanning bed. Not so much these days.

Fake Bake. Mostly likely you've done it at least once or twice in your life. That golden glow that makes you look like you've just returned from a week-long tropical vacation.

Indoor tanning involves using a device that emits ultraviolet radiation to produce a cosmetic tan.

The number of U.S. adults who use indoor tanning beds, which are strongly linked to skin cancer, declined to 4.2% in 2013 from 5.5% in 2010, according to a dermatology published report in JAMA Dematology.

I have noticed that you don't see the tanning bed salons like you used to back in the day. If you are one that still frequents commercial tanning salons or if you have a tanning bed in the privacy of your own home, beware of the negative effects it can possibly have on you, i.e., skin aging, sunburn, skin cancer and infections.
