Protect The Skin You’re In : Tanning Is Out

I’ve been thinking a lot about Dad lately, so in his memory I play a couple videos for you today. I found the below clip on this blog.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

A while ago, on a weekend morning, I sat down with breakfast on my couch, turned on the telly and saw this:

Tanning is out. In fact, when you are tan or have a sun burn, that’s your body reacting to the sun rays developing melanin in order to protect the skin and tissue deep underneath from getting damaged. But sometimes it does, sometimes that melanin turns to melanoma. Let’s face it, a sun tan, freckles, sun spots, a.k.a. age spots, sun burns…they’re all signs of damaged skin.
