No more Tanning Beds for Minors in the state of California.

For many years people have associated a sun kissed glowing tan with health and vitality.  Millions of people have utilized tanning beds aka  “Fake Bake” to achieve this look.

Tanning Beds are not safe!   As we know UVA & UBA rays cause cancer.  Tanning beds often exceed “safe” UV limits.

Teens are especially at risk  because their bodies are undergoing such accelerated growth rates that their cells are more prone to the damage from UV radiation says Susan Evans MD.

The FDA and the CDC both suggest that you avoid using tanning beds in order to prevent skin cancer. There really is no such thing as a safe tan from a tanning bed. In addition to the risk of developing skin cancer, exposure to UV rays causes your skin to age prematurely.  This I know first hand, I utilized tanning beds for many years from ages 16 – 30.  BTW, nobody asked me for my parents consent.

On October 9th, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that prevents minors from utilizing tanning beds. (backed by health-care groups)  California is the 1st state to adopt this legislation, and will go into effect January 1.

Under current law, children 14 and younger cannot use the beds, however those ages 15 – 17 can do so with permission from their parents.

Teenager or Adult we are all taking the risk when using a tanning bed or trying to get a tan at the beach or pool side.   Protect your health and your skin, you owe it to yourself.
