Tanning after c-section
MOST HELPFUL POSTS
You shouldn't use them at all. Sun beds cause skin cancer and cause the skin to age much more quickly by drying out and wrinkling. Sun beds, also known as "Tanning beds" should always be avoided.
Instead, invest in a good sunless tanner. Sephora has a great selection, most under $40. Hempz also has a great one for only $20. One bottle usually lasts about a month if you apply it every other day. Use the tanner every other evening, and a regular moisturizer with SPF 50 every morning and you will keep your skin looking young and healthy, and avoid the cancer.

Tanning beds are considered so dangerous that they are now banned in Australia. They are more dangerous than direct sunlight. In fact, it is estimated that one in six melanomas in people aged 18-29 are attributable to sunbeds.
If I were you, and I'd just had a baby, I would want to be there for my child until they are at least an adult, so I would choose a safer tanning alternative.
