white-space-for-blog37Not a massive surprise I am sure to Cult Beauty blog readers, but the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has just announced that they have reclassified UV-emitting tanning devices - sunbeds to you and I -  as “Carcinogenic to magda-something-about-mary3Humans”. Twenty independent studies have shown that the risk of cutaneous melanoma is increased by 75% in individuals who begin using tanning devices before the age of 30.

These results reinforce current recommendations by the World Health Organization to avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours, on top of the advice of every dermatologist and doctor in the land. With the quality of fake tans out there at such a high standard there is no excuse to continue with this madness.
