skin_cancer_treatment_tanning_booths_sun_exposure_cancer_preventionWomen who want a tan but not the associated skin cancer risks that come with tanning booths and sun exposure may want to reach for a bottle of sunless tanning product.

Researchers say that women who use sunless tanning products decrease their “intentional sun exposure” and use of tanning beds.

Nine out of 10 of the women surveyed in the study said they believe tanned skin is more than attractive than their natural un-tanned skin. Nearly 80 percent said they feel better about themselves when they’re tan.

The study was published in the Archives of Dermatology.
