  • bad for baby & do you really want skin cancer. because tanning at all is damagine to your skin. i know someone who died of skin cancer. they worked outside & never used sunscreen. is a tan worth your life?

  • No, never done it. I am not sure what the results could be. I do know you are not supposed to get and stay overly warm, because that could cause probs.

  • UV light does not penetrate through solid very well. Personally I canceled my tanning when I found out I was pregnant, even though all the websites I have found say it' s okay. I did spray tan for a fwe weeks after, which worked for me. I wouldn't do it on your body. Face is probably okay.
