UV Ray Tanning Bed

On May 1st  Ontario began enforcing a new law regulating tanning beds. It is primarily aimed at those under 18 years of age. Known as Bill 30, Skin Cancer Prevention Act (Tanning Beds), the law makes Ontario the eighth province to regulate tanning beds and also restricts advertising aimed at the under-18 market.Additionally, tanning salons must post four warning signs throughout the business warning about the dangers of UV ray exposure and requirements to check IDs of users. Self-service UV tanning has also been banned. There must now be trained personnel on-site at all times. The law also requires all operators of tanning beds to register with their local health agency.

Raising awareness of the dangers of tanning beds and UV rays for all users is also the focus of the bill. Sunburns at early ages can have serious consequences years down the road causing skin cancer and early aging of the dermis. The idea of having a glorious tan can be compelling to a teenager and they often don’t heed the advice of elders and doctors. Regulation of tanning beds should help to reduce the number of melanoma cases in years ahead.

Sunless tanning should be the path chosen by those seeking luxuriant, darker skin. Melanotan 2 is a proven method of developing a long lasting tan without over-exposure to UV rays. Anyone spending time in the sun should always use high quality sunscreens such as  being TRUE Essential Absolutley Radiant Facial Moisturizer SPF 30. It is also imperative  that sunbathers use effective moisturizers like BABOR SeaCreation The Cream.The dermis is the body’s largest organ and certainly the most visible. For those who prefer using tanning lotions be sure to use one that is highly effective and does not streak or stink. Phytomer Sun Radiance Self Tanning Cream is a product that provides a short-term even tan.

Whatever method you chose, maintaining healthy, radiant skin is imperative to avoid potential skin cancers and premature aging of the skin. If you want want to be tanned, be careful and make smart choices.
