Teen Vogue writes some good articles about teens and their tanning habits. And now that it's summer, the word should be spread even more. Read this today, pass it on, etc. Because it's such a silly thing to risk your life for!

Here's some advice for you: I put sunscreen on my face every morning on sunny days. Not just an spf make-up but real sunscreen. So far, it's been worth the time it takes to work into my 'beauty routine' (which is basically just putting on mascara). For all of you pale-skinners out there, you ought to too!
