Following an article published for CVT News regarding a new ban on tanning beds for Oakville teenagers, Likewise Skincare offers its support.

August 22nd, Likewise Skincare, a skincare company that is all about anti-aging, comments on an article published for CVT News which provides coverage on the banning of teen tanning in the town of Oakville, Ontario.

According to the article, the law restricting tanning for teens 18 years old and younger was passed by the Oakville town council, while the Ontario government is still studying pertinent information. The article states that the Canadian Cancer Society is thrilled by the actions Oakville has taken to prevent skin damage. Furthermore, it was reported that “the Canadian Dermatology Association says that any level of ultraviolet radiation from indoor tanning beds can increase the risk of melanoma, which is the most deadly form of skin cancer.” In addition, the article claims that increased tanning bed use for teens put them at an 87 percent greater risk for developing melanoma.

Likewise Skincare understands the effects of aging, and they are a manufacturer of an SPF 50 moisturizer. Lisa Shariat, a representative for Likewise Skincare, commends the town of Oakville. “It is truly encouraging to see the people of Oakville taking the effective steps toward preventing skin cancer. By banning the use of tanning beds for teens, Oakville is giving its youth the opportunity to protect their skin as well as gives them the chance to learn how to feel confident in their own skin.”

The CVT News article concludes by stating that legislation to ban teenagers 18 years old and younger has been introduced to several provinces, such as Nova Scotia and Quebec. In addition, it states that The World Health Organization asserts that tanning under the age of thirty increases skin cancer risks by 45 percent.

Likewise Skincare was created by board certified dermatologist and President of Likewise, Inc., Dr. Julie Pena. Likewise daily moisturizers are all-in-one but not one-fits-all. Each moisturizer is formulated with skin-balancing toners to work with your specific skin type. The moisturizers use a combination of anti-aging antioxidants, ultra-protective zinc oxide, and water-resistant ingredients to keep you protected.
