Catching rays from inside the bed of a tanning salon may be easier than venturing off to the beach, but it’s not going to do your health any good. Research shows there is a clear link between indoor tanning beds and skin cancer.
The good news is that people are finally taking note and ditching the habit, according to a new study done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Overall, the rates of tanning inside dropped from 5.5 percent to 4.2 percent from 2010 to 2013. However, 1.9 million men still hit the tanning bed (!) and guys between the ages of 40-49, saw their usage balloon 177 percent during the three-year period.
If you’re still one in the 1.9 million, consider quitting today—there are better, healthier, ways to accomplish that look you want. From gels to sprays to lotions, here are 11 self-tanners to try today.
