A preliminary investigation of the predictors of tanning dependence.
Am J Health Behav 2008 Sep-Oct; 32(5):451-64AJ

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

To investigate possible predictors of tanning dependence including demographic variables, exposure and protective behaviors, and other health-related behaviors.

METHODS

This study consisted of an online survey of 400 students and other volunteers from a university community.

RESULTS

Twenty-seven percent of the sample was classified as tanning dependent. Tanning dependence was predicted by ethnicity and skin type, indoor and outdoor tanning and burning, and lower skin protective behaviors, as well as smoking and body mass index.

CONCLUSIONS

Young adults are at risk for tanning dependence, which can be predicted by specific demographic and behavioral variables.
