Thanks everyone for posting! Some of you brought up some good points! Tanning is unhealthy in general, especially in a tanning bed, but even going outside to tan. Tanning in a bed just exposes you directly to harmful rays, but tanning outside can be just as harmful. Of course, some people tan naturally, but if you don't, don't push it. Thus, you should respect your skin and wear skin protection and NOT tan!
