Tanning Tax is in Effect

The tanning tax is officially in effect since July 1st, 2010. Anyone getting an indoor tan will pay an extra 10% tax for the services. Many tanning salon owners and customers are outraged and feel like they’re being punished. 

“It’s terrible,” said Jan Meshon, owner of City Sun Tanning in New York City.

Meshon goes on to tell cnnmoney.com, “We’ll do everything to keep our customers, but they are very upset by this, he said. “When they first hear about the tax, their reaction is, ‘What? How did that get in there? Why are they attacking me?”.

The constant articles and information out there on the amount skin damage and cancer caused by indoor tanning doesn’t seem to affect the millions that tan each day. Don’t people realize that they aren’t being attacked for tanning. They’re being looked after, their health and well-being is being kept in mind. Maybe if it hurts their pockets they’ll reconsider it.

The tax will not affect self tanners and spray-tans. For safe ways to get the same glow from tanning beds check out, Glow Kardashian Style and Jergens Will Make You Glow.

Snooki Approves of Sunlove

Self-proclaimed guidette, Snooki, does not step out the house without a bronzed complexion. Recently she’s been spotted promoting Sunlove’s self-tanners. It’s a spray tan you can give yourself at home. The formula is blended with natural ingredients that start working on your skin up to three hours after it’s been applied. The radiant glow will last on your skin for up to three days. Go as dark as you want by layering the mist on the body.Sunlove is designed for everyone in mind wanting a safe tan. 

You can see pictures of her on their website and she might even be filming a commercial for sunlove.  Snooki told allure magazine:

“I just heard about Sunlove not too long ago and then I tried it out. It doesn’t leave your face greasy, and there’s no bad smell to it like other spray tans. I never used spray tanners until this one because I usually just went tanning. But you know after the taxing, you don’t want to deal with that, and friggin’ cancer—so this is a great product to replace all the bad stuff of tanning.”

No word on whether she’ll stop using tanning beds altogether, but the tan still looks great.
