  1. Is a tanning bed really that much worse than laying out in the sun? I always lay out during the summer time but I hate being pale in the winter and was debating on whether I should get a membership at a tanning salon is worth it

  2. I have this fear of doing this because. what if you get trapped and can’t get out

  3. Some white people want to tan their skin because they think they look more beautiful. But in the Philippines it’s the opposite. Many Filipinos wants to lighten their skin because most of us think that the whiter the skin the more beautiful they are. There are many whitening soap or bleaching soaps advertised on TV here.

  4. Some people actually benefit from tanning if they have a skin issue like atopic eczema or psoreasis. I know that shouldn’t be a good excuse for tanning, because it really is super dangerous, but I would personally rather live ’till I’m 75 with good skin until I’m 60, than live with my skin issues until I’m a 100. I know you should always strive towards living as long as possible, but a long life doesn’t equal a good life with self-esteem and self-value. So if tanning makes you feel good about yourself, my opinion is, you live right now, so do it now. You could die in a car accident tomorrow and never get that cancer.

  5. How much do bulbs usually cost and how often do they have to be replaced?
