Woman Was A Big Fan Of Using The Tanning Bed Until It Almost Destroyed Her Face

Date March 15, 2018 14:49

Tanned skin was not always considered something beautiful. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, it was actually the pale skin, which was a standard of beauty. Pale skin meant noble status in the society. It was because a noble person wouldn’t work under the sun, thus couldn’t have a tan.

Skin damage

Nowadays, things have changed quite a lot. We see a lot of women lying on the beach to get that perfect tan they have always dreamt of. This, however, may lead to some horrible consequences. Risk of getting melanoma is significantly higher if you are often exposed to UV radiation.

There is, however, a much scarier thing: tanning bed and booths. They always come with health warnings, and now, you have to be 18 to use those. Skincancer.org reports that “People who first use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent”.

Victims of tanning beds

Tawny Dzierzek was only 27 years old when a horrible thing happened to her. Using tanning beds destroyed her natural beauty and left awful scars on her face. The chase for beauty gave her skin cancer.

And now she’s trying to warn everybody to use sunscreens and get a simple spray tan. She wants to prevent people from making the same mistake!

Another victim of tanning beds is Mallory Lubbock.

She shared a picture of her removed cancerous spot and told her story to warn people. She admitted that 16-year-old Mallory went tanning every single day for 2 years, and she regrets that so much right now. Mallory says:

I will try like hell to make sure my daughter will not be lying in a single tanning bed while she is under my roof and I hope her just hearing about and seeing Mama go through this will be enough.

People's reaction.

Many people are agreed with Mallory. They support her position against tanning beds and share the similar stories of their own.

We don’t understand why young women keep on using tanning beds despite awareness of skin risks and health damage. Is it a tragic cost of beauty? Maybe it’s time for tanning beds to become a thing of the past?

We pray for the girls' health and wish them victory against cancer!
