Gwyneth Paltrow’s view on tanning is making waves among beauty blogs.
In an interview in the August issue of Cosmopolitan, Gwyneth Paltrow dares to express her honest view on tanning and her love for the sun:
“We’re human beings and the sun is the sun – how can it be bad for you? I think we should all get sun and fresh air. I don’t think anything that is natural can be bad for you – it’s really good to have at least 15 minutes of sun a day.”
This her statement has ignited an explosion of negative comments in the beauty blogosphere. Many self proclaimed beauty experts are expressing their anger over how it is possible to promote being in the sun.
Here is one example of a brain-washed comment by @Camilla for the Beauty Stop:
I will give her a break and not make it a huge issue. Perhaps she meant that the sun exposure would be “good” if you were slathered in sunscreen. Getting outdoors is great, I don’t want to promote a fear of the sun and everyone is entitled to their opinions, but this just seemed like a really ignorant comment.

@Camilla, your ignorance and inability to think for yourself or just do some elementary research about the benefits of regular UV-exposure is amazing!
Gwyneth Paltrow knows the benefits of tanning and the dangers connected with avoiding the sun.
Having been diagnosed with severe vitamin D deficiency after a Tibial plateau fracture surgery, gp was found to have severe vitamin D deficiency. This is how she wrote in her goop magazine in June 2010:
“I suffered a pretty severe Tibial plateau fracture a few years ago (requiring surgery) which lead the orthopaedic surgeon to give me a bone scan, at which point it was discovered I had the beginning stages of osteopenia. This led my western/eastern doctors in New York to test my Vitamin D levels, which turned out to be the lowest they had ever seen (not a good thing). I went on a prescription strength level of Vitamin D and was told to…spend a bit of time in the sun! I was curious if this was safe, having been told for years to stay away from its dangerous rays, not to mention a tad bit confused. As we are all well schooled in the dangers of overexposure to the sun, I thought it would be interesting to hear Dr. Frank Lipman’s very informative (if possibly incendiary) opinion on the benefits of sunshine. Below is his article about the dangers of Vitamin D deficiency and the benefits of catching a few summer rays sensibly.”

With this, gp joins the steadily increasing number of stars who “have seen the light” and realize that most of their colleagues in the movie and fashion business have been duped into the very unhealthy advice to avoid sunshine (and sunbeds too, for that matter).
