    ^^ I've noticed the same with a lot of women quite a bit younger than me too. Yikes!

    Always hated people obsessed by tanning. Thanks to evolution getting rid of them.

    Excessive tanning you say?







    When I lived in southern California, there were quite a few leather-skinned, bleached-haired ethnic northern Europeans around.

    Well I think they can be a good option either to go 3-4 times in the winter to get some Vitamin D, or to prepare for a vacation so that you don't get burnt. I live in Italy, so I don't have a big problem since it's warm from the end of february to the end of november; however I've lived in Denmark, and if I were to live in Scandinavia I would absolutely need to use them, my skin needs the sun.

    Always hated people obsessed by tanning.
    It's not a matter of obsession, some people with darker-olive skin need more sun than what they can get, say, in Finland, in order to feel good and be in good health. I agree that tanning beds are probably not the best option, however for some people there's not much else available in wintertime, esp. where winter is long.

    Vitamin D is available as a dietary supplement.

    But oral absorption is not particularly good, you need large quantities to have a similar effect to 15 minutes of 4-level UV rays. Not to mention that it has been proven (even on scientific studies, if that was needed) that UV light has beneficial effects on mood, larger than those obtainable by substitutes such as the lamps against S.A.D (whose name I don't remember, sorry).

    It is true that it can cause skin cancer if over exposure on it is done. You don't have to worry as long as you know the time to be spent on using it. For the first timer, a maximum of five minutes will do for a couple of sessions and just add two minutes higher every next season until you reach the maximum of 12 minutes.
