Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud is fronting a campaign to raise the age of sunbed use to 18 instead of 16 which i think is really important! In coin opperated sunbed shops there is no supervison to check how old the people are who are using the sunbeds which is outrageous! It can cause such harm to your skin and even cancer if they are used often like many teenage girls do. It's so sad that someone like Nicola didn't feel comfertable being pale skinned and felt like she had to use fake tan etc to be beautiful. I do admit that i felt some pressure to be tanned in the summer months however i just don't suit a tan and feel alot more comfertable being pale now i have red hair than i did when i was blonde. I know alot of people who use sunbeds or live for fake tan so much it rules there lives! Theres even a documentry on tonight on bbc 3 about Nicola meeting sunbed users and people with skin cancer due to sunbed use.

  1. I no sunbeds are so bad I have a friend who used to have one like 3 to 4 times a week because he felt the pressure to be tanned, i feel every now and then is ok but some people can get properly addicted!!! x
