Skin cancer leads the charts with one million cases each year. But Spring Breakers continue to line up at tanning salons to get that beach ready body.
Those lined up at Express Tan in Bowling Green say they are working on developing a base tan. That's so they don't get burned while on the beach.
"The base tan is what the UVB is gonna do it's gonna build your melon in your skin that's what UVB does... And then when you go in a higher pressure bed that has UVA rays in it.... it's going to help brown the melon in your skin.... that the UVB produced," said Hilary Barnes Express Tan employee.
The American Cancer Society says no UV rays are safe, and any exposure is putting yourself at risk.
Although the ones interviewed at this salon say skin cancer doesn't worry them many say they don't plan on making tanning a habit.
