Yes, keep in mind that when you are tanned, you still need a sunscreen to protect against UVA rays that damage skin. Even if you rarely or never burn, you risk getting skin cancer later in life due to invisible UVA rays. In less sunny parts of the world, 1 in 3 will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. In the sunnier parts of the world, such as Asia and South America, it’s 1 in 5 despite the fact that people there are usually very aware of sun damage and don’t sunbathe the way we do in the Northern parts of the world.
