Tanning Lamp Hazards

So if you frequent tanning salons, Health Canada suggests you minimize your risk by:

    * Reading the warning labels on sunlamps or tanning beds and following the directions closely.
    * Always wearing safety eyewear.
    * Having the salon operator recommend an optimal session length based on your skin's sensitivity.
    * Allowing at least 48 hours between sessions.
    * Making sure there's a physical barrier, such as a clear sheet of acrylic, between you and the tanning lamp.
    * Limiting the total number of tanning sessions per year.
