Redheads and Pale Women Most Likely to Use Tanning Beds

People Who Really Shouldn't Tan Are the Most Likely to Do It

It's clearer than ever that tanning beds are dangerous, but that apparently isn't stopping the people who are most vulnerable to skin cancer from using them—at least in the UK. The British Association of Dermatologists conducted a study and found that redheads and other pale, freckled people were the most likely to use tanning beds, even though they're at a much, much higher risk of developing skin cancer already. So in lieu of prematurely ageing yourself and damaging your skin, slather on wide-spectrum sunscreen and stick with the self-tanner instead.
