Depends on how to you define “harm”.

@BIW:  You’re going to get a lot of negative responses here! I’d wait the days. You REALLY don’t want to risk peeling or getting blotchy. The extra tiny amount of tan is really not worth the risk of completely fcking your day. Right?

I wouldn’t go more than every other day.  You’re more likely to get dry and peely.

When I used to tan, I’d go in high level beds, for 8 minutes at a time, every other day.


Then I got a precancerous mole removed from my back.

It depends on what kind of base you have. If you have only just begun to tan then I wouldn’t go more often than every other day.

If you can’t use spray tan, can you use self-tanner that you buy at a drugstore or beauty supply store?

Being a public health geek with a mentor that died of skin cancer, I would strongly recommend never tanning in a bed again, and the use of sunblock daily.
