just watched a program on Channel4, it suggested only going on a sunbed 10 times a year at a MAX...other wise the likelyhood of getting cancer is massive...

Hi, i would think i only went about 10/12 times but got a good tan, usually i lie in the sun like most and that adds up to a lot of sun bathing.I find it is good if you are sensible and with my shaved head it does not look like I am ill. Tried fake tans, spray ones but tend to go orange.The doctor told me to stop going, give up drinking, stop smoking and going with other women, He said I would live twice as long.I said it would just seem twice as long.

everyones different :)
sunbeds normally are 3-6 times stronger than midday sun... hence the only go 10 times a year MAX.

eeek couldnt do it. im pale, yellow in the summer (due to not being 100 english), and seethrough in the winter! i think id prefer that to dieing of cancer any day! lol :D

saying that im not your average type of girl.. lol

I've never been on a sun bed, but have heard of it's pros and cons. As long as you use them wisely and dont become tanorexic.
Here are some pros : Tanned skin protects you against sunburn, thought to be the main cause of melanoma. If you avoid getting sunburned, the benefits of moderate sun exposure will far outweigh the possible dangers.

Sunbeds can be a good source of vitamin D in winter in Britain, Sunlight is the most effective way for the body to manufacture Vitamin D. Yet in the UK, our bodies can only manufacture Vitamin D from exposure to the sun during the months of May to October. Outside of these months, the sun is simply not strong enough.

MYTH: THE ELDERLY DON'T NEED AS MUCH UV EXPOSURE AS THE YOUNG
TRUTH: Your ability to manufacture vitamin D diminishes fourfold from age twenty to age seventy. Older people are especially receptive to the alarmist warnings about excessive sun exposure and often decrease their exposure at a time when they need it most. Since vitamin D is directly linked to bone health, this age group should be more concerned about fracturing a hip because they are vitamin D deficient, than the risk of getting wrinkles or skin cancer.

sunbeds are bad news, damage your skin very severly... can end up with the brown spots people call "age" spots, which are actually from overproductive melanin in certain patches on the skin from over exposure to sun...that whys u see old ladies with them on their hands and chest ect...always in the sun

Onv sunbeds can produce these at a much earlier age, damage allover the body rather than just hand and chest...can also damage the retina of the eye if u dont wear proper eye protection.

I used to go on them until i realised how dry and awful my skin was,

dont look nice tbh, get a tan when i go on holiday once a year and thats it, and i always wear sun cream

OH and i bet you dont wear factor 25 when ur on the sunbed lol

Slightly connected to this story - I'm very fair skinned and have never liked the idea of sunbeds. So about 10 years ago I decided I'd have a professional spray tan before going to Egypt for a couple of weeks, so I wouldn't look like a ghost for a week (I'll wear factor 50 when in the sun ! !) It looked really good.

Get up on my first day, stroll to the pool, read a book for a couple of hours then decide to go for a swim. Dive in the pool and then there's a trail of brown behind me as the fake tan disappears. Apparently fake tan and Chlorine don't mix. I was brown in Egypt for a total of 2 hours and spent the rest of the holiday as white as a sheet.

Gix, whats it like living in a sunny place? As in tan wise. I know the locals get accustomed to it and they generally have darker skin for this reason as protection. Is it just a matter of keeping out of direct sunlight? Will you over time just become darker skinned and able to tollerate it more?

I guess when you live somewhere sunny you don't go sun bathing but still, working on cars/doing the gardening etc all times when you could be out in the sun or is it just a matter of doing everything in the shade?

Sorry this post doesn't sound very clear.

Think of a "tan" as skin damage and to whatever degree you want to brown up, even more damage as you go along. Which is why, in Oz for example, when I flew out in a September following a particularily good UK summer,I was the darkest person around. In every primary school this slogan abounds:
[i]Slip, Slop, Slap!
It sounds like a breeze when you say it like that
Slip, Slop, Slap!
In the sun we always say "Slip Slop Slap!"
Slip, Slop, Slap!
Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat,
Slip, Slop, Slap!
You can stop skin cancer - say: "Slip, Slop, Slap!"

After a few chats with "them in the know" I've never let myself get so tanned since, even taking to wearing a hat with the top down despite a thick head of hair...and I hate hats.
Skin cancers can develop many years after the trigger damage. The husband of a girl at SWMBO's school died from skin cancer a few years ago.It was attributed to his pastime of scuba diving in the Med a couple of times a year when the sun (she said) concentrated in a sort of prismatic way onto his skin while he was in the water! He was fine for years, and dead in one.

Why is everything we enjoy best the worst for us?

There are lots of ways people can enhance their attractiveness to the "oppo" so personally I don't see how the risk of killing yourself is worth it.

12 years here and i still seem to get caught out a few times a year with sun burn.

In summer i'm fine as i know it's gonna be hot, dry and sunny for 4 months, so it's shorts, teeshirt, sandals, sunglasses and a big hat.

I've never sunbathed in me life, so no idea how that works.
On the beach i usually slap on 50 sun cream and a hat and sit under me shade chair thing.


What catches me out is the rest of the year.
I went walking and shooting t'other week and it was a bloody freezing (around 13c), when walking ya needed a jumper on, but when stopped you really needed a coat and a jumper.

So knowing it was this cold i didn't take a hat or sun cream.
I got sun burn on me receding forehead and looked like a fooooooooookin panda from me sunglasses :wallbash:



So in 12 years i'm not really any darker skin colour wise,and i don't seem to have a higher tolerance for the sun either.
Much to the amusement of the Gypo skin tned Greeks :whistle:

:lol:

Come Sept though and even without sunbathing i still get a bit of a tan, only them am i a bit more immune to sunburn.
