What Does Tanning Cause?

Just because one likes tanning does not always mean it is a good thing to be doing. Tanning causes wrinkles, brown age spots, blotchiness and leathery looking skin. UVA rays tan one, but can cause a lot of damage still. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin. Sometimes they can reach clear to the dermis, where the blood vessels and nerves are. This can damage the immune system which fights diseases and illnesses like melanoma the most serious type of skin cancer. If this happens it can also prevent ones immune system from fighting none related sun illnesses.
