True or False ?

Artificial UV tanning sessions let you tan in complete safety


Tanning is the skin's defence mechanism against UVB rays. Yet UV tanning beds diffuse UVA rays in doses higher than those in sunlight: insidious because they are painless, they only provide a superficial tan and encourage the production of free radicals which are responsible for skin ageing and alterations in the cellular system. Therefore UV tanning beds speed up premature skin ageing and increase the risks of developing skin cancer.
