    Sun tanning
    sarad90 posted:
    Is sun tanning every day for about 30 minutes bad for my skin?
    igetadeal responded:
    Sun tanning is a very bad effect for your healthy skin. It could be your skin dry and rough which is the cause of many skin problem. We have to use a skin care product to protect our skin. I use Obagi nu derm set. It is very good for me.
    Mohiba K Tareen, MD replied to igetadeal's response:
    Obagi Nu Derm is a great system but can be very expensive for some people. The active ingredients that are in NuDerm are sunscreen and a retinoid. Those are the two main keys to keeping the skin looking young and healthy.

    I hope that helps
