ive also been wondering about this, dont you worry about cancer?
this is a article from a swedish newspaper telling about a norwegian-swedish study that shows women get a 55% increase of cancer when tanning one or more times per month compared to women that dont tan at all.
does anyone know the limit?
ive heard or read somewere that 6 times per year is enough.
also read that most sunscreens (correct?) dont protect against cancerrays from the sun.

bro, from what i've read, due to a test here in america, women and men who tan on a regular basis (i.e. not every day, but correctly) have a reduced chance for breast cancer, and skin cancer. I have read this many times, but it could be biased.

It depends what's gong on......... If I'm on a cycle then I will tan 3 times a week to keep from breaking out...... but when I'm off once a week is all I need summer or winter.

Ive been tanning twenty minutes a day, five days a week for about 4 months. Problem is its ruined my skin. I have big circular patches on my chest and back that are lighter than everywhere else...not attractive!

I work outside so I get the sunglass tan around my eyes during the fall and winter season so I try to tan 2x a week for 20 minutes at a time during those seasons.
Summer time I am always tan.

And sunscreen reduces the risk of skin cancer by a huge amount...it blocks the harmful uva and uvb rays...however, you certainly won't tan if you're wearing sunscreen...
screw it...i'm white as hell, but i tan whenever i can - despite knowing the dangers...

I tan year round, change it up for how dark I want to be. During the summer, around 4-5 times a week, but during the winter, once or twice a week will keep it up pretty good. My girlfriend has worked at a tanning salon for about 3 years, and her main advice is to make sure and put moisturizing lotion on after every tan. Will help keep the tan, as well as possibly help minimize stretch marks from working out.
