Texas Bans Indoor Tanning for Minors

Tanning Bed The state of Texas recently passed a bill into law that prohibits minors from using indoor tanning facilities.  Teens under the age of 16 1/2 are no longer allowed to use indoor tanning beds and those between the ages of 16 1/2 & 18 will be required to have in-person parental consent before being allowed to tan.

The United States Department of Human Health & Services has declared that UV (ultra violet) exposure from both the sun and artificial sources is a known carcinogen (causes cancer).  It's estimated that over 2.3 millions teens per year use indoor tanning facilities.  Over 1 million new cases of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, will be diagnosed this year and many of these new cases will be teens.

Personally, I applaud Texas for passing this law.  People don't seem to realize the danger that indoor tanning poses.  I hope that the rest of the United States will follow Texas's example since there are so many safer and healthier alternatives to exposing oneself to UV rays.

Question:  What's your opinion on the Texas legislation?  Do you think this new law is fair or unfair?  Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.  Thanks!

Brazilian Waxing Being Banned in New Jersey

Waxwoman Brazilian waxing (also known as waxing your "nether regions" completely bare) is possibly about to be banned in the state of New Jersey due to 2 complaints from women alleging they were injured after a Brazilian waxing service was performed on them.

Aestheticians and Cosmetologists perform thousands of Brazilian waxing services each year, and for the salons who offer this service, it could result in a HUGE loss of income.

Being a licensed aesthetician and skin care practice owner myself, Brazilian waxing is service that I offer and is extremely popular with my client base.  I'm not in NJ, but I would be livid (and so would my clients) if my state board decided to ban this service from my practice's menu.

QUESTION:  How do you feel about a governing body taking away your right to choose a service, whether it's Brazilian waxing or let's say massage therapy?  What are your thoughts on this?  Please leave a comment below.  Thank you!
