Tanning can be acquired from hours of lazing in the sun, on some beach. Better still, is the idea of wearing a tan regularly by resorting to tanning under a tanning bed, under artificial conditions. While the latter form of tanning may look very authentic and satisfactory, it is a process of tanning that is fraught with the risk of cancer.
Tanning is the 'in' thing and people are exposing themselves to UV radiations to get the skin tone of their choice. There is nothing wrong about it But you must know that prolonged exposure could be dangerous!
