Health Tip: Talk to Teens About Tanning
Make sure they use sunscreen

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Many teens want their skin to cast a bronze hue, but tanning can cause significant skin damage and serious health problems.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says teens can protect themselves by:

  • Using sunscreen.
  • Wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoiding direct sunlight when taking an antibiotic or birth control pills.
  • Avoiding tanning pills or tanning accelerators.
