It's already been proven that too much sun exposure can lead to skin cancer, but one woman shared her horrifying story to warn people how dangerous tanning beds can actually be.

In April, Tawny Willoughby shared a picture on her Facebook of the potential disturbing effects of undergoing skin cancer treatment. The photo has since been shared by almost 60,000 people.

According to her post, the now 27-year-old did the majority of her tanning when she was in high school, laying in a tanning bed an average of four to five times a week.

Her Facebook post (below) shows the graphic image of her face during skin cancer treatment:
