Ban on Tans

Bad news for those tan-o-holics, there is a new tanning law in effect starting July 1st. The new Health Care Reform Bill will include a 10% tax on all indoor tanning sessions.

And if that isn’t a deterrant enough, the FDA is currently debating rather to add serious restrictions to tanning beds. New studies have found that indoor tanning can increase cancer risk 75%.

Now you have even more of a reason to run out and get an airbrush tan!
