Miley Cyrus gets her tanning fix all the way in London!

While visiting London to sing at the Royal Variety Performance, Miley Cyrus stopped in to a tanning salon on Dec 6. Why, Miley, why? “It is shocking that she would use a tanning bed only months after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) made a major announcement that indoor tanning is more dangerous than previously thought in terms of skin cancer,” says Dr. Howard Sobel, an NYC cosmetic dermatologist. In addition, “Using a tanning bed when you’re younger can be very harmful because there will be more cumulative sun damage as well as signs of premature aging or lines and wrinkles. According to the National Cancer Institute, women who use tanning beds more than once a month are 55% more likely to develop melanoma,” Dr. Sobel adds. With all the overwhelming evidence that tanning beds DO cause cancer, why are you still fake baking, Miley? There’s no good excuse. If you think you look better tan, try out one of these great self-tanners. They’re a risk-free bronze in a bottle! – Marta Topran
