City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

In case you haven’t heard, attempts to restrict tanning for teens in both Texas and Florida were made over a week ago. The proposed bill in the Lone Star State would require minors to get a doctor’s note before using a tanning bed and would also require parental supervision during the treatment. In Florida, where sun-kissed skin is standard practice, lawmakers are going as far as to propose a total ban on fake baking for teens under the age of 16.

With beach season around the corner it’s time to address the issue of sun exposure and tanning. As a girl from Long Island I can tell you that bronzed was the way to look all summer long, if not all year long courtesy of said tanning salons (though I’ve actually never been). With brands like Jergens introducing daily moisturizers that provide your skin with a natural glow as opposed to a full on Dina Lohan orange tint, I can’t see the benefits behind the fake bake.

If you’re one who likes to look sun-kissed without the risk of um, skin cancer, than pledge to be part of Jergens Glow in the Dark campaign. The campaign was created to encourage women to give up their harmful tanning routines in favor of safe alternatives that allow you to glow without the sun. For every pledge made, Jergens will donate $1 to The Skin Cancer Foundation with a minimum donation of $10,000. Actress Rachel Bilson has already pledged to Glow in the Dark this summer despite her Northern California address. The campaign runs now through August 31st so log onto http://www.Jergens.com to pledge. I’ve already done so and to prove it you can find my name on the site’s pledge wall.
