Over time, the material fades as it emits out the light energy that it absorbed. Since glow-in-the-dark pajamas are a novelty item, they need not be used if one has concerns about long-term or environmental effects of glow-in-the-dark materials. ...Read more

Are tanning beds safer than natural sunlight?

Are tanning beds safer than natural sunlight?

Tanning beds don't offer a safe alternative to natural sunlight: Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation damages your skin, whether the exposure comes from tanning beds or natural sunlight. This damage increases the risk of skin cancer and premature skin aging. In fact, tanning beds emit UVA rays — which might increase the risk of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. If you'd like the golden glow of a tan without exposure to damaging UV radiation, consider using a sunless tanning product. Avoid tanning beds, and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen whenever you're outdoors. ...Read more
