Social media smarts could make you less susceptible to skin cancer as new research shows that media literacy skills can help change people’s attitudes about what is believed to be the ‘tanned ideal.’Tone down your risk of skin cancer — Skin Care News — ScienceDaily
World rejoice. Those with higher media literacy were less likely to compare themselves to the ‘tanned’ goddess. Those with less media literacy were more likely to compare themselves.
Interesting study. Curious if this is because those who are on social media embrace the tanned idea but do so using fake tanning products which are very popular among the influencer crowd.
Let me know, do you still think the tanned ideal from the 80s and 90s is still considered ideal? Have we just reached it using fake tanners?
