    it doesnt matter how many times youve gotten sunburns. a tan causes just as much damage to your skin as a burn. if u have a family history of skin cancer then go to your doctor and see if you are at risk.

    Don't use the low SPF 45 is better. Check yourself and if you have ANY moles that you didn't think you had BEFORE you started tanning tell a parent and go to the doctor. If your family has a history of skin cancer talk o your parents and doctor about it.

    I DO NOT at all sugest uing spray tan tanning beds or anything that isn't a nice and natural tan.

    Stay away from the tanning and the tanning beds!!What is more important-your life? or brown skin? Be happy with the skin you were born in, it part of what makes! You are a perfect candidate for skin cancer, my brother in law passed away from melenoma at the age of 44, he always had a suntan-I wish he would of listened

    you never know, but i would stop tanning. tanning is soooooooooo dangerous. so, no matter how big the spf number is, you should rarely tan in a tanning bed, lying on the beach tanning is less dangerous
