A school head mistress in England is trying to ban pupils who attend her school from wearing fake tan.
If you had children of school going age would you support this ban or not?
Personally I think- although I find bright orange fake tan ridiculous- it's a typical teenage attempt to be 'individual' while being exactly the same as everyone in your year. I have seen some SPECTACULARLY bad tan jobs on uniformed girls AND boys in the last year, streaky orange legs, dark funny looking knuckles, brown necks but with ghostly white faces. Yes it looks stupid, but they're kids,a nd it's not exactly harming anyone.
ON the other hand I see some parents are all for it, putting fake tan in the same bracket as piercings and over the top hair dyes (which I also don't really disapprove of, it's only hair).
What do you reckon, overkill or quite right?
Disclaimer, Etheline and I once tangoed ourselves to ridiculous effect. It took days to wash off and that experiment was never repeated, I now have a perfectly good farmer's tan from running outdoors. Naked, I look not unlike a skewbald horse.
