A recent study shows if you are tanning indoors especially before you turn 25, you are at a significantly higher risk for skin cancer.
Researchers say nearly 6 percent of Americans choose to have a bronze glow.

Doctors say the biggest misconception is that tanning beds are better for you than outdoor sun.

According to the analysis, indoor tanners are 67-percent more likely to develop skin cancer than someone tanning outdoors.
Last year, California became the first state in the country to ban indoor tanning by minors.
