A WOMAN has shown off the noticeable difference in her tan before and after a week of going on sunbeds.
TikTok user Halle Wilford uploaded a video showing her bronzed look after her sessions, but has been savaged for being a “proud tanner.”
On her @hallewilford account, she wrote: “Day one on the sunbeds vs a week later.”
Halle added: “The difference of a week on the sunbeds hahaha.”
Her video has racked up thousands of views, but many people slammed her for promoting the dangerous beauty treatment.
One said: “I went on sunbeds when I was younger and now I have stage 3 cancer at the age of 27. No amount of tan is worth dying for.”
