Rates of malignant melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, have more than quadrupled in Britain over the past 30 years, and it is the second most common cancer among 15–34-year-olds.*

Experts have warned that using a sun bed just once a month or more could increase the chance of developing melanoma by more than 50%, while also contributing to premature wrinkles and pigmentation.

This is why Cancer Research U.K.’s R UV UGLY campaign is calling on people to face some of the cosmetic damage being inflicted on their skin in pursuit of a tan, by offering free skin assessments at skin clinics across the U.K. Visit www.sunsmart.org.uk.
