I had a malignant melanoma removed some years back - and am now thankfully OK.

The specialist told me sunbeds are just as dangerous as the sun, and never to use them.

Moderate exposure may be fine, but sunbeds are inherently intense.

I will be on the when I get back to the UK, can't abide the thought of going back to being pasty, hate it.

Not sure how often or for how long I should go to maintain my 'three months in Cyprus' tan though...

The key is not to get burned. IMO if you're keen enough to roast yourself for long periods on a sunbed, you should use MT2 which in turn will help you tan and reduce how long you need on the beds.

im thinking of using sunbeds just once a week for 6 mins to start. im naturally tanned ish and never pale and also tan easy so shouldnt need much for a nice colour.

need to look into them first before i use them though

Well, my girlfriends 28 year old sister died of cancer last year and her brother had skin cancer this year so after being that close to cancer i'm never going near a sunbed.

Meh... I dont particularly like being out in sun for a lot of hours... I never used sun bed to be honest. If ou want tan just get some tanning wipes or spray i guess man.
