Moderate Exposure to UV Light Provides Vitamin D, but be Careful Not to Burn Cautions Tanning Association

WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With spring break upon us, The Indoor Tanning Association (ITA) is encouraging beach goers to tan responsibly. While moderate exposure to UV light is necessary for good health, overexposure to UV light can be a dangerous byproduct of too much time in the sun. In order for tanners to get all the benefits of UV light, such as Vitamin D, without the negative effects of overexposure, such as sunburn, the ITA recommends knowing the seven following tips:

  • Tan moderately. Getting a tan can be healthy, but overexposure is not. It is important for tanners to be conscious of how much exposure they are getting.

If you visit a tanning salon to get a base tan, be sure to start out spending only a few minutes in a sunbed and gradually work up to longer sessions. Ultraviolet light from a sunbed is just like ultraviolet light from the sun. If you don't tan outdoors, you will not tan indoors.
  • Indoor tanning is safer than outdoor. A good way to minimize the risk of contracting sunburn is to tan indoors where the beds are regulated by the FDA, professional staff can monitor how a particular skin-type responds to UV light, and your body can benefit from an even tan without overexposing any one part.
  • Know the effects of medication. Some medicines make certain people's skin more sensitive to sun and UV exposure. If you are taking any medications, do the necessary research to find out what, if any, side effects they mig
