Before visiting a tanning salon, it’s really worth considering the facts about how sunbeds can damage your appearance – and your health. Cancer Research UK's R UV UGLY? campaign is calling on young Britons to face the invisible damage being inflicted on their skin by sunbeds.

Here, Binky Felstead of Made In Chelsea takes a R UV UGLY? skin scan to see the underlying damage caused to her skin through exposure to UV. Binky offers her tanning tips using her favourite self tan and campaign partner Vita Liberata.

Cancer Research UK's new SunSmart campaign, R UV UGLY?, is offering free skin assessments at all UK sk:n clinics. To book call 0800 822 3037 quoting R UV UGLY? or text R UV UGLY? to 63757 (standard rates apply).

Cancer Research UK has teamed up with the UK’s No.1 skin clinic, sk:n, to offer two free UV skin scans to sunbed users. This allows young sunbed users and older ‘influencers’ of sunbed users to see the hidden damage lurking beneath the skin’s surface. The hi-tech scans give an uncompromising close-up of what skin really looks like, revealing wrinkles, areas of dehydration, sunspots and damage caused by over-exposure to UV rays from sunbeds and the sun.
