Local dermatologist says no such thing as a safe tan Caroline McDonald, a senior communication studies major, started using tanning beds her senior year of high school. After her first time tanning, she went every day for two months straight. Today, McDonald tans at least three times a week.
“I know that it’s bad. It’s like people who smoke cigarettes.” McDonald said. “They know that it’s bad, and it can kill you, but you still do it. It’s more of a trend. It’s for self confidence.”
