Fake tanning is being encouraged by a school in Scotland with the object of preventing children from jeopardizing their health using sun-beds. Seminars are proposed to be conducted in schools by Fake Bake, a cosmetics company. Sun beds are reportedly resulting in the number of skin cancer cases rising.
Many students of the Thomas Muir High School are reported to be going in for sun-beds sessions, prompting the school authorities to contact Fake Bake. The organization also has plans to introduce the system across the country. A golden tan can be acquired as easily through the use of cosmetics, according to company sources.
The parents are also in favor of this as they feel that children should pay greater attention to their education rather than their personal appearance. More and more children are trying to look like their favorite bronzed celebrities. Scotland has also been witnessing higher deaths as a result of skin cancer.
