The study was conducted by researchers from the Emory University in Atlanta who polled 415 women in the city who used tanning products such as fake tan lotions or gels and also natural tanning and found that more than 37 percent of them cut back on exposing themselves to the sun or ultra violet rays of the tanning beds.

Writing in their report, the researchers said, "As the appearance of sunless tanning product tans continues to be improved, the products carry the potential to further decrease intentional UV radiation exposure and, subsequently, the risk of UV-related skin cancer."
