Picture of the week: Tanned out

The perils of the tanning bed

 

We thank the extraordinarily colourful character and well-known florist Orlando Hamilton for this week’s picture of the week.

 

A tan too far

Goodness knows where he found it, but readers you might need your sunglasses to look at this one. In it, a lager swilling woman provides illustration as to why sunbeds should indeed be avoided. This bleach blonde haired creature further highlights the perils of her ‘look’ with a dress and matching nails that would better suit Katie Price or a member of the cast of The Only Way is Essex.

 

Did this woman look in the mirror before heading out? We guess not but on a more serious note, she ought to look into the health dangers of over-tanning. A 2009 study by cancer experts for MSNBC found that “tanning beds [were] as dangerous as arsenic and mustard gas” and that “people who used tanning beds before their 30th birthday had a 75 percent higher risk of developing skin cancer”.

 

The lesson here is simple. If you don’t want to die, turn off the tanning bed.

  1. AAH! It’s leather face!! It’s one thing when a bride to be is more pale than a piece of copier paper and doesn’t want to clash with her wedding dress on her big day, or the teen who is about to do Spring Break in Florida and doesn’t want to burn. It’s another when vanity and post-modernist thinking drives people to turn their face into a saddle bag.

  2. I don’t think it’s acceptable in any circumstances – bride-to-be, headed for spring break, SADD, etc. Tanning beds are dangerous and should be done away with. And that woman does not look healthy or attractive – she scares me.

  3. oh dear. I used a tan bed before I was thirty, but not after. But I moved from Essex, so that may have helped. Five may be six years ago Good Housekeeping magazine asked travel journalists to have their skin analysed many years ago, and I was one of them. No one agreed!!!
