Yes they will be banned in Queensland from December 2014, it was recently announced. Which when you think about it makes sense if you're in Queensland you normally get plenty of sun exposure as it is and skin cancer rates here are insanely high. In Spring/Summer there's probably no need to go to a solarium when you can lie outside instead anyway. In winter it's a different story and it can be hard to find a fake tan that looks brown on you not orange so you might need to do some shopping around.

I still go to a solarium in winter when it's too cold to be in the sun because some UV light actually helps my skin a bit because it dries it out so much!

Cant stand fake tans. Used to get them every week for like 3 years!! get over the wetness in bed and smell. I know solariums arent good for you but what is these days plus if you dont over use them i dont see every now and then to be a problem. I go occasionally to boost up my colour but im usually always at the beach anyway.

im 5 weeks post op and have started back this week. just be really cautious that your skin has been stretched, therefore it is thinner and will burn very easily! I did a 9 minute session with the towel covering my boobs as i will just fake tan my chest, just in case! plenty of sunscreen!

Correct girls I work for the health department and solariums will be illegal soon - you may not be in them for long but the effect on your skin is irreversible. Fact you are 59% more likely to get skin cancer if you have used solariums! check out the link
