Watch Tanning Is Out


kelsey_cmyk_poster cropHi, I’m Kelsey. I’m a college student and I used to go tanning. But, when I agreed to appear in the Melanoma Foundation of New England’s Public Service Announcement on tanning it changed my life. I got the facts about how dangerous UV rays are. Like, did you know that unprotected skin can be damaged by the sun in as little as fifteen minutes? And that tanning beds emit three to six times more UV radiation than the sun? I realized I was taking crazy chances with my body. I stopped tanning and started seeing a dermatologist regularly. And, I have to admit, I love the way my skin looks now.
