Yes. You increase your risk of getting skin cancer. You can reduce your risk of cancer by adopting healthy habits: Eat a mostly vegetarian diet, avoid alcohol, tobacco and street drugs, avoid excessive exposure to sun, maintain healthy weight, get HPV vaccine, exercise 30 minutes each day, drink enough water so your urine is mostly colorless. Wish you good health!

Indoor tanning beds pose a risk for certain kinds of skin cancer like melanoma,because of the uv rays they emit .They can also cause premature aging of the skin and serious damage to the eye .Some people can also have an allergic rash if they are sensitive to the UV radiation. FDA is trying to regulate the exposure by having the manufacturer post a recommended exposure schedule .
