Although indoor tanning is considered a cosmetic exercise in the United States, the industry’s roots are therapeutic and many Americans do in fact use tanning facilities for that purpose. People enjoy sunlight and tanning—outdoors, under the sun, or indoors in a professional tanning facility—for many reasons. Tanning facilities in the United States are equipped to deliver cosmetic tans using protocol designed to minimize the risk of sunburn. People simply enjoy the way controlled exposure to UV light makes them look and feel. What’s more, moderate tanning, for individuals who can develop a tan, is the best way to maximize the potential benefits of sun exposure while minimizing the potential risks associated with either too much or too little sunlight.
