Skin Tanning

                           Skin tanning means darkening of certain parts of skin due to
exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Early morning sunlight is beneficial for human being because it helps in the production of vitamin-D by human body, where as excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays has health effects like sunburn, skin cancer and it hastens the process of aging. That's why one should always take precautions because " precaution is better than cure '' , before exposing their skin to ultraviolet rays. 
        To avoid sunburns and other side effects some people use sunscreen to the exposed body part and some uses umbrellas. Some people tan or get sunburnt more easily than others.Some people think having a tan gives them healthy look or u can say its an "IN" thing.Its ok in moderate amounts.
