MONDAY, Dec. 19 (HealthDay News) -- Young women who get their tan out of a bottle may spend less time sunbathing or using tanning beds, two riskier behaviors, according to a new study.

The report was published in the Dec. 19 online edition of the Archives of Dermatology.

For the study, Chen's team surveyed more than 400 women, age 18 and older, about their use of sunless tanning products and their tanning habits.

Almost 50 percent said they had used sunless tanning products at least once in the last year. Most had used self-applied products, with 9 percent saying they got a professionally applied spray tan. The products were used by women of all ages, the researchers noted.

More than 70 percent said they had tanned in the sun in the past year, 26 percent said they had used a tanning bed and about one-quarter said they did both, Chen's group found.
