All you have to do is checkout the Skin Cancer Foundation website to realize just how dangerous tanning beds and overexposure to sunlight can be.3

The facts:

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed annually. Treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers increased by nearly 77 percent between 1992 and 2006.

4SOver the past three decades, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined. 

One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.

Just one indoor tanning session increases users’ chances of developing melanoma by 20 percent and each additional session during the same year boosts the risk almost another two percent.b16C

Among people ages 18 to 29 who have ever used a tanning bed and were diagnosed with melanoma, 76 percent of those melanoma cases were attributable to tanning bed use.

People who tan indoors just four times per year increase their risk of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma by 15 percent

But:

There is a safe, effective and easy way to have the golden glow of the sun without the risk: Fake Bake. In fact, Fake Bake is guaranteed not to streak, turn skin orange, have a bad odor or stain clothes; and guarantees “to provide the richest looking tan in the most luxurious way without the sun.”

It takes about 20 minutes to sufficiently dry after application and only needs to be applied once a week because it doesn’t wash off — it just fades like a real suntan.

However, this is not sun protection. Fake-Bake Sol Survivor — a spray-on SPF 30 sunscreen — is a perfect companion product. Specially formulated to use over your existing Fake Bake tan, Sol Survivor provides protection against the sun and harmful UVA & UVB rays. The refreshing mist is non-greasy and dries quickly.

Fake Bake is perfect for your winter holidays on the beach or your next cruise. You’ll have all the beauty of a tan without any of the risk.
