You're right. We don't "need" to smoke. Neither do we "need" to tan. Limiting sun exposure reduces the chances of getting skin cancer. It just makes sense not to do anything that might increase cancer risk.

The answer to the original question of whether HRT makes tanning beds any less safe is "no" it doesn't.
I did find this about premarin and tanning:

Premarin side effects


This drug may cause blotchy, dark areas of the skin on the face (melasma). Sunlight may worsen this effect. Avoid prolonged sun exposure, tanning booths, and sunlamps. Use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.

Although the original poster has never been back to read the replies to her question, others may find this article interesting:
