EG offers a healthy alternative to UVA tanning

A recent study published in the Archives of Dermatology found that women who were given sunless tanners along with a bit of skin cancer education were 33 percent less likely to sunbathe to develop a tan, compared to only 10 percent of those who were not given sunless tanners.  Two hundred fifty women were recruited to participate in the study during their visit to a public beach in Massachusetts.  The researchers found that their tanning intervention, which promoted sunless tanning as an alternative to UV tanning, “had a short-term effect on sunbathing, sunburns, and use of protective clothing and a longer-term effect on sunbathing and sunless tanning.”
