Do you think tanning at the beach is bad?

The only reason I don't like sunscreen is because it's sticky. Other than that, why not do something that is actually there to help you. Just because you don't get sunburn, doesn't mean your not at risk of getting skin cancer.

The wavelength of the sun is divided into UVB and UVA. UVB which causes skin cancer at a higher degree is blocked by many sunscreens. However, it doesn't mean you can go and cook yourself just because you have sunscreen. UVA is also blocked but to a lesser degree. UVA causes a far more dangerous type of skin cancer called Melanoma which is pretty deadly.

With or without sunscreen, tanning is a bad idea. That doesn't mean exposure to the sun is a bad thing. It actually produces Vitamin D in your skin. Just don't overdo it.

When I'm on holiday I do, but too be honest, its not likely that you'll get a really good sun tan in the UK so... I don't put any on.

I think I could use a tan and I think I need it. I'm whiter than a piece of paper.

I took health class in college and from what I learned "there is no such thing as a healthy tan." even at a tanning salon.
