Sunless Tan Lotions: Models Avoid Sunbeds

Yet more reasons to use sunless tan lotions to get yourself a deep, brown tan came to light this week.

London Fashion Week is about to begin and (as part of Cancer Research UK’s R UV UGLY? campaign which works to raise awareness of the dangers involved in using sunbeds) the leading British model agencies have joined in a ‘no sunbed’ policy.

With perfectly good sunless tan lotions available, model agencies such as Storm, Elite and Union have agreed to a rule of no sunbed use for all their models.

Cancer Research UK have campaigned to highlight the risk of skin cancer involved in the use of sunbeds and have been instrumental in lobbying for new legislation in England and Wales to prevent under 18s from using sunbeds.

Sarah Doukas of Storm Model Management says, “Supporting this campaign makes perfect sense as the wellbeing of our models is of paramount importance and we take a serious approach to their health.”

Using sunless tan lotions to get the tan you want makes sense, especially when you understand the risks of sunbeds. Using a sunbed before the age of 35 increases the risk of worst kind of skin cancer, malignant melanoma, by 75 per cent.

It is an encouraging sign to see model agencies, which get such a bad press with regard to subjects such as thin models, take such a responsible stance.
