How to use tanning in a sentence?

  1. Lucy Skinner:

    I have been working on some experimental tanning to create replicas of the individual scales, the ancient methods used for making this type of leather are not really well understood. Materials will invariably change chemically and physically after being buried for thousands of years, so there are a lot of complicated scientific processes involved in finding these things out.

  2. Brenda Cartmel:

    At gyms and apartment complexes use of the tanning facilities may be unsupervised, when this is the case users could use the tanning facilities much more frequently than at a tanning salon, where use is generally restricted to twice a week, the more frequent the exposure, the greater the risk of skin cancer.

  3. Margaret Karagas:

  4. Margaret Karagas:

    Pediatricians should counsel parents and patients about the risks of using tanning beds.

  5. Lauren Utvich:
