Tanning / Sunbathing

This one should, at this point, come as no shocker. When the Earth is tilted on its axis to be closer to the sun, exposed, and especially fairer skin, becomes particularly prone to damage from ultra violet (or UV) light, specifically UVA, and UVB. These light particles are small (not quite as small as microwaves, but small), and can get under your skin, causing cell damage and burns. Over time, that damage can lead to cancers like melanoma. And tanning beds are the worst, as they concentrate UV light. It doesn’t take much, and skin damage is irreversible, so be careful out there.
