Copy of My General Post

Hi all,

If you don't already know this, I figured I would get the word out to all industry professionals....

I was busy doing other things, but just caught the end of a new national commercial being aired currently. I may not have it exactly right because I wasn't really paying attention and then it was gone. I looked for it on line and didn't find it, but here's the basic premise:

Some female athlete (maybe skiier?) was explaining why she puts on sunscreen everyday and that everybody should be wearing ORANGE, (like everyone wears pink for breast cancer awareness), except this is for skin cancer awareness.

What I did find on-line was that the derms are designating May 6, 2013, as MELANOMA MONDAY and everybody should be wearing orange accordingly to support it. It is called Sun Spot Orange and oddly enough they sell sun screen products by that name Yes, that was sarcastic.

Anyway, time to batten down the hatches for this next attack and I'm sure hoping ITA hurries with their "offensive campaigns".

Here's the link:

Re: Copy of My General Post

I have been tanning responsibly for years. The truth is, I feel WAY better mentally, emotionally, and physically when I tan. I NEED to soak up some UV rays. I limit my time, never over-expose, use sun protection when I am not exactly sure what my exposure will be, and I lather on moisture. I was never really tuned into how much anti-tanning marketing was out there until recently. My partner and I purchased a couple of tanning salons and figured out quick just how lopsided the information is. When I am talking to a new client (especially an inexperienced one), I am VERY specific about exposure risks and try to help them understand how to be good to their skin, so they get the results they want without causing harm or prematurely aging. People who have been tanning for years have told me directly that nobody has ever taken the time to explain how to tan (and yes, as everyone here knows, there is a proper way!). If you are ever in Iowa, please come by and see us! We are timeless-tan.com

We have two stores and are about to open two more!
