Looking to cheat your way to a summer glow? That won't be so easy for teenagers in Germany, where the country's parliament has passed a law banning people under 18 from using tanning beds. Or should we say solariums, as the Germans do?
The goverment aims to reduce the prevalence of melanoma and other types of skin cancer, according to Allure. German doctors see about 140,000 new cases of skin cancer annually, and with 4 million under-18s visiting sunbeds once a month or more, it's easy to see why preventing young people from developing a habit is a practical first step.
The UK currently has no such restriction, and age limits in America - or requirements for parental consent - vary state by state.
Do you think more countries should have a ban like Germany's?
