Despite Knowing the Skin Cancer Risk, Many Millennials Continue to Tan

Thursday, 4 July 2019

An estimated 10 million commercially insured Americans are living with skin cancer, up from 9 million last year, reports the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA).And of all the generations, millennials are more likely to engage in risky behavior in order to get a tan, according to a BCBSA survey. The millennial findings show:

 

 

 

58 percent think a tan makes a person more attractive
53 percent believe a tan makes a person look healthy
31 percent use tanning beds to get a baseline tan
“It’s well documented that millennials are a lifestyle-oriented generation. In general, they choose lifestyle over other areas of life,” Dr. Larisa Geskin, director of the Comprehensive Skin Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian and Columbia University Irving Medical Center, told Healthline. “I think [this behavior] is really driven by the desire to seize the moment and enjoy their life.”
