I tried one sunbed but ended up addicted – now I splash £200 a month on three a week and am obsessed with my dark tan | The Sun

SHE thought she'd give herself a bit of a bronze by booking in for a sunbed.

But before El knew it, she was completely addicted to maintaining a dark tan.

She took to TikTok to share a video of herself showing off her deep colour, as she wrote over the top: "POV: you had 1 sunbed and got addicted.

"So now you’re going 3x a week and spend over £100 a month."

"£200 a month," someone corrected her.

To which El replied: "True".

In another post on TikTok, El wrote: "S is for sunbeds. I love sunbeds.

"I wish I could be on sunbeds all the time."

One of the pictures in the post showed her pulling her bikini bottoms to the side to show the difference in her skin colour.

El now uses tanning sprays and accelerating products to give her bronze an extra boost.

Despite El using her social media pages to promote sunbed usage, the NHS has strict guidelines as to why it's extremely dangerous to use them.

"Sunbeds give out ultraviolet (UV) rays that increase your risk of developing skin cancer, both skin cancer (melanoma) and skin cancer (non-melanoma)," they wrote on their website.

"Many sunbeds give out greater doses of UV rays than the midday tropical sun."

And the risks are even greater for young people.

"People who are frequently exposed to UV rays before the age of 25 are at greater risk of developing skin cancer later in life," they added, before continuing: "Sunburn in childhood can greatly increase the risk of developing skin cancer later in life."

If you're still desperate for a glow, it's far safer to switch to fake tan. We've tested the best ones on the market, and have some top tips to get you bronzed.
