Summer is starting (except 3and Gypo) and all of us like getting tanned. It looks sexy and yummi but do you know that there is a dark side of it?
According to the Weekly Spark many people assume that a tan protects them, when in fact a tan is actually a sign of skin damage. Tanning is the skin’s reaction to UV radiation from the sun or an artificial tanning bulb. When skin is exposed to UV rays, it tries to protect itself by producing a brown pigment called melanin, which darkens the cells of the outer layer of skin. Tanning is your skin’s imperfect defense mechanism against further damage, and darker tans cause the most permanent damage.
So did you like my new tan ;)
