Why is it important to build a base tan before vacation?

Developing a base tan using an indoor tanning bed on a gradual schedule is a good way to create a progressive production of melanin in your skin.  Melanin is made in the inner layer of your skin, and is what give your skin a tanned look.  Melanin also acts as a filter by absorbing some of the UV light and preventing it from reaching the dermis, where it can cause damage. Building a good base tan before you go on vacation can help prevent burning and longer-term skin damage that may not become apparent until years later.
