I always love sharing healthy alternatives with you on the blog ESPECIALLY when it comes to taking preventative measures for your skin.
I’m here to tell you 3 reasons why you absolutely need to stop using tanning beds!
Summer is coming which means everyone is super pale and wanting to get TAN and QUICK.
I’m sure you know it, but tanning beds are SO awful and completely preventable.
Not to mention, they are dirty AF. Ew
Here are just 3 reasons why you need to hop out of the tanning bed and fast…
- Premature Skin Aging: Wrinkles, Age Spots, & Skin Texture
Basically unprotected exposure to harmful UV rays break down the collagen and elastin fibers in healthy young skin (AKA YOU READING THIS) and cause wrinkles and loosened folds. Frequent tanning can cause you to have permanent dark spots and leathery skin texture.
According to Melanoma.org “Research indicates that just one blistering sunburn can double your chances of developing melanoma later in life. In addition, using tanning beds before age 30 increases your risk of developing melanoma by 75 percent. Occasional use of tanning beds triples your chances. Research also suggests a strong dose-response relationship – meaning the more sessions, hours and years spent tanning, the higher the risk of developing melanoma and other types of skin cancer.”
Um… Scary AF right? Let me ask you this… Are you REALLY willing to risk your life just to look a little bit more tan? Is it worth potentially having chunks of your skin taken off? I don’t think so!
I’m going to make this quick… Some chick just sweat her ass off in the tanning bed before you… NAKED… and then you are going to go get comfy for 10 minutes and leave your OWN sweat ring?
Hmmm, need I say more?
P.S. Tanning beds are known for carrying TONS of gross diseases…
Okay okay, you get the point. Basically, nothing good comes out of using tanning beds because there are SO many alternatives to get that bali glow.
I have naturally tan skin but around the winter time I tend to get a pastey, olive-ish look and I can’t stand it. I’ve tried lots and lots of products but I find myself looking like a flaming hot cheeto.
Well, I got news for ya…
I’ve found the holy grail product.
Kim Biermann’s very own Kashmere Kollections is SO amazing!
I am in love with all of her products but two of them really stick out to me.
I like to use her Silken Body Polish to exfoliate. I use this alllll over to get all of the dead skin cells off my body, leaving me with a smooth surface. This also has special ingredients to fit cellulite- rub that on your booty, ladies! You’ll thank me later.
Once, I’ve exfoliated- I use her Sunless Tanning Lotion which is to DIE for. Smells delish too!
My favorite thing about Kashmere Kollections is that everything is cruelty free & vegan!

I really really encourage you to not only try her products but to stop using a tanning bed!
Treat your skin like your baby, it’s the first thing people notice when they look at you, and you have it forever!
