Watch What Happens to Your Skin Every Time You Get a Tan

You probably already know that hopping into a tanning bed is putting you at a major risk for skin cancer.

Still not scared straight? The video above from Dark Side of Tanning shows you just what happens when you get a tan. Above the surface you see a golden glow, but just underneath the skin your cells are in survival mode. Excuse us while we slather on the sunscreen; SPF 100, please.
