California minors under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to use tanning beds anymore. This week, the state’s Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law to prevent children and teens under 18 from using tanning beds, the Washington Post reports. Although Texas has banned the use of tanning beds for children under 16, California is the first state to set a higher age limit, which will go into effect as of January 1, 2012. Is this the start of a tanning revolution?
