NICE have further warned the public about the dangers of sun exposure while getting a suntan.
There is no safe or healthy way to get a tan from sunlight, new guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has warned.
The health watchdog’s latest guidance also says an existing tan provides little protection against sun exposure.
Many adults in Britain have low levels of Vitamin D and the NICE guidance states that some exposure to sunlight can help to build this up.
NICE also says it is not possible to get enough Vitamin D by sitting next to a closed sunny window, or from sunlight between October and March in the UK.
