Indoor vs. outdoor tanning...and the tanning industry vs. the FDA

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Which produces a better looking tanning? Indoor or outdoor?

Which is safer? Indoor or outdoor?




Also, the tanning industry claims that lots of the warnings out there are exaggerated or false and vice versa with the FDA and health officials.

Outdoor tanning benefits is not the only thing you should know while relaxing in the sun
Indoor Tanning

well, everything else aside: i think you get a better tan from indoor beds, just because the beds are designed to make sure it comes out even, while the outdoor sun isn't. also, no tan lines

Fact is you don't have a perfect diet. Guaranteed you have stored waste in you somewhere. This is the beginning of cancer, the food it feeds on. You need the sun. You don't need a tanning bed. Caution anything that costs you money. When someone has a hand in your pocket, how can you trust them?

That being said, my mother, who had a less then perfect diet, died of malignant melonoma, skin cancer, at the age of 32. She was fair skinned and fair haired. She tanned religiously. 32! That is 5 years younger then I am today. I remind myself of that every time I go outside and I live in FL. I love the sun and I love the beach. If you don't use sunscreen or good judgement when taking in sun, or a tanning bed, you are an idiot. Everything you do has a consequence. Pick your battles wisely because it really isn't about the quantity of life, it is about the QUALITY of life.

Outdoor is better for you, IMO. Indoor tanning makes u look mad orange. I would never go to a tanning bed!

When you go to a tanning salon, your skin actually produces a tan in the same way that it does when you're outdoors. One of the dangers of outdoor tanning is exposing yourself to TOO much ultraviolet light. The benefits of indoor tanning is that it allows you to control the amount of UV light that you are exposed to.

Agreed.

Indoor tanning equipment utilizes the same two kinds of ultraviolet light, UVA and UVB rays that are emitted by the sun. There's not one better than the other. Indoor or outdoor...there's still the same risks. Too much sun is never good for all those reasons.

i would not listen to the tanning companies...of course they want to make it sound like its not harmful, but I've known too many people who have tanned all their life and look horrible when they hit 40 (age spots/wrinkles - no thanks)

Some self tanners can make you orange. Tanning beds do not. The lotions that are used with tanning beds have bronzers in them most of the time and they do not turn you orange as you may think they would. (There are TONS of different lotions so some may have a self tanner in them but I have not seen one that did.) I was very wary of them but I have used them in combination w/a high pressure tanning bed and have gotten great results with no orange hues whatsoever.
