Maturing Industry

The tanning industry is a 2 billion dollar market that targets mainly sixteen to thirty year old women. Everyone tans because it is cheap and only takes a little of your time a day to look good. Depending on how long one wants to go tanning and the type of bed one uses, the prices flexuates anywhere from one dollar to over seven dollars ( Fig. 1). Skin damage is the true price of tanning though. The tanning industry not only huge because of tanning itself, but a lot of the profit comes from the lotions; such as tinglers and bronzers that are suppose to help tan one faster.
