Schools should encourage kids to wear hats and sunscreen and schedule outdoor activities when the sun is low in the sky. And colleges and universities should eliminate indoor tanning beds on campus much as they would prohibit tobacco use, he added.

“We need more states and institutions on board with these policies that discourage or restrict indoor tanning by our youth,” Lushniak said. “Tanned skin is damaged skin.”
You are exactly right. people will soon be asked to reveal whether they tan indoors or outdoors; much like smokers are required to do today. If you admit to doing it, you will faced with higher prices for everything from health insurance, to life insurance. You will be punished.

Re: bad sign

They have been chasing drug dealers forever.And yet drugs are more plentiful and cheaper than anytime in US history.I guess laws and bans work!

I am glad so many of you feel the sky is falling.Sure it is not what it use to be,but what is?

The attacks on indoor tanning is just a symptom of a very sick government that likes to think it is a free country while it takes as many of those freedoms away.And your new surgeon general is just one sick military puppy who is wetting his pants at the thought of chasing tanning salons around.What an A hole he is.Did you read the 112 page report?Can you even begin to guess how many times the word sunscreen appears in there?

How long have the derms been paid to promote sunscreen? And now the fox is guarding the chicken coop.

No corruption there.The least they could do is try not to make it so obvious.

I am a pretty good swimmer. The solution is within each operator. Just take a step back and look at your business. Making adjustments based on trends is important. When you never make adjustments, over time your business model gets so far out of whack that it takes a major overhaul to get back on track.

I am the one person that says don't give up because there is a solution to your problems. Being successful is not easy, it is hard and you must be on top of things every day. Remember what drew you to this business and get that fire back.

Also, no one is going to make it in this industry strictly on UV free tanning. That might be 25% of one's business model at best. It is UV tanning that is in decline and Steve knows it. The misinformation is really disturbing.

The end game for indoor UV tanning will be that it will become so regulated that you will need to be a licensed healthcare professional to administer it. So Steve is right, tanning will never go away, however, soon the average person will not be able to operate a salon by themselves.

Of course the big names in the tanning industry won't mind that; they will hire a couple of derms, put them on the payroll in order to administer their company tanning programs. This will effectively eliminate what is left of their independent competition.
UV tanning is not declining, it is changing because how tanners tan is changing. Spray tanning is the fastest growing segment of the tanning industry and should be promoted accordingly.

When there is bad press for UV, promote spray tanning , bad press impact tanning for short periods of time because the consumer has a short memory. People will not stop doing something that they enjoy and makes them feel good.

There will always be short term reactions to bad PR but it is quickly forgotten. It is all about being aware and making adjustments. Most of you I would never allow to manage a salon because of the way you react to things. Be like water, if something gets in your way find the best way around it. It is simply overcoming objections like with any sale. I want people that are looking for a solution , not a person that only complains about the problem. Most operators only need an attitude change.
