Tanning Is Bad For Your Skin - Or Maybe Not?

I am sure you often hear and read how tanning is bad for your skin. It cause wrinkles and premature aging in general.

Here is an article about a guy who has been tanning all his life (and the last 30 in tanning beds at least once a week in average).

In a skin-analyzer, his skin comes out "younger" than 91% of all others of his age.

He also compare his face to one that has (even if unknowingly) followed the advice from dermatologists and kosmetologists.

Here is the link to the article:
which-tanning-advice-should-you-follow.

Just wonder which tanninglotions he uses? They must be good!

The thing with tanning beds is that it produces fake UV rays just like the sun emits. Over exposure to UV rays cause cancer, rashes, skin discoloration and blisters.

There is no such thing as "fake" ultraviolet light, just as there is no such thing as "fake" visible light.

See how little people actually know about Indoor tanning and UV light? How much would a little basic scientific education be in helping the public understand the truth about UV light?

We do everything we can to educate our customers in person and via social media. How do you suggest we reach the masses?

Re: Tanning Is Bad For Your Skin - Or Maybe Not?

In my opinion, we should turn the tables on our opposition. 1) The debate needs to be changed from indoor tanning to UV light. Since most people equate the 2, if you can point out the natural benefits of, and the physiological need for UV light, you indirectly legitimize indoor tanning as well. 2) We need to point out the complete hypocrisy of the dermatology industry, who; a) uses artificial UV light to treat skin disorders and lines and wrinkles, while calling anyone who provides it at a reasonable price, dangerous. b) point out their abysmal record of performing operations for skin cancer that are unnecessary and actually make the patient worse. c) the ridiculous idea that freckles and moles that you are born with are pre-cancer, d) Even though indoor tanning is shrinking, cases of melanoma are rising. 3) We need to remind the public that our industry is and has been regulated on the federal (FDA) and state levels since the beginning of the industry. The implication is that if the FDA sets safe limits for tanning session time and equipment, and it is followed, then there should be a perception that the practice is blessed by the FDA aka the US government. 4) The use of tanning beds are at a 10 year low, use of sun screens are at an all time high, and cancers of all types for women are on the rise-what is wrong with this picture?

This would require this industry to go on the offensive and get creative. But regardless of how much we avoid the obvious no-no's of the making medical claims, we will get sued, so we should prepare to be represented by groups who protect free speech and usually do it pro bono.

I have never seen an industry that takes its strategy talking points from their opposition like this one does. If you look at many other industries who faced similar discrimination, (Milk, Coke, meat, oil, etc.), no one has sat around and said nothing to the public while their industry is being dismantled by their detractors. These folk will not leave us alone, just because go and sit in the corner. They want your money and your livelihood.
