Don’t Use Tanning Beds: Growing concerns about the dangers of indoor tanning have recently led to new taxes and restrictions to help deter the practice among young people. Contrary to what tanning parlors may claim, the radiation that comes from indoor tanning is as damaging to the skin, if not more, as direct, prolonged exposure to sunlight and the UVA rays used in the machines penetrate deeper into the skin.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, studies have found that individuals exposed to tanning beds under the age of 35 have a 75% increased risk of getting melanoma. What’s more, tanning booths increase the risk of non-melanoma skin cancers.

Know the warning signs of skin cancer: A skin growth that changes in size and appears pearly, translucent, brown, black, tan or multicolored; a mole or birthmark that changes color or texture or increases in thickness, is irregular in outline and larger than the head of an eraser; a spot or sore that continues to itch, scab or bleed and does not heal within 3 weeks. If you notice one of the signs above see a physician, preferably one that specializes in diseases of the skin.

Get screened once a year: While it’s important to examine your own skin regularly for any suspicious lesions, a dermatologist is trained to spot abnormalities you might not pick up through a self-exam.
