Myth: A Base Tan Can Prevent a Sunburn

Posted on: August 10, 2012

“This time of year we hear time and again about people working on their “base tan” before summer arrives, thinking that catching a few rays now will protect their skin from getting burnt throughout the summer. But, to set the record straight, there is no such thing as a base tan. Any amount and type of sun exposure damages skin, and the damage is cumulative, so a little here and there all adds up and contributes to premature aging and an increased risk of developing skin cancer. As you prepare to bare, your safest bet is to fake a glow and protect from head to toe”. DermRF
