True or False ?

If I have a tan, I no longer need any protection

FALSE
The skin has defense mechanisms to fight the effects of UV rays: it thickens and produces a pigment (melanin) which partially filters UV rays and gives colour to the complexion-- your tan. However, this "natural" protection against the harmful effects of UV rays is superficial because it only partially filters out UV radiation. A tan therefore does not exempt you from using a sun production product.
