Kelowna, BC (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
As Canadians try to make the most of our notoriously short summer, the Joint Canadian Tanning Association (JCTA) is reminding sun lovers to tan responsibly.
The association, which represents professional tanning salons across the country, is offering educational advice to coincide with Tan Awareness Week, which runs from June 17 to 21.
“In Canada we want to be outside enjoying the summer sun any chance that we get but it’s important to take some precautions,” said Steven Gilroy, Executive Director of the Joint Canadian Tanning Association. “Tan Awareness Week lets us explain the proper ways for Canadians to enjoy spending their summer outdoors by doing just a little bit of preparation before stepping outside. Research has even shown that tanners independent of their tanning experience have a 'more relaxed and less tense mood' when exposed to UV light.”
The JCTA offers the following tanning tips for anyone looking to enjoy the sun this summer.
