Ban the use of sunbeds for those under 18

Thumbs up to self-tanning brand, St Tropez, who have started a petition to ban the use of sunbeds for those under 18, and unmanned coin-operated tanning beds. Given that skin cancer is the No1 form of cancer in young women in the UK, it doesn’t come a minute too soon.

Coin operated booths start at the pocket money price of £4 for 20 minutes of exposure; you don’t need more than half a brain to realise that those desperate for a ‘tan’ can use these as many times as they like and often end up with horrible sunburn, which in turn can lead to skin cancer later on. St Tropez need 10,000 signatures before they present to parliament along with a mandate for change.  Visit  www.st-tropezskinsmart.org to add your name to the list.
