I've just heard about this on the PM programme on Radio 4.

Beyond whether or not the lesson is a good idea or not, is it not a sad indictment of the MTV culture that seems so prevalent today that young people are so obsessed about their appearance that they're using tanning salons? Whatever happened to being satisfied with how you look? Not least in Scotland where there's the highest proportion of people with UV sensitive skin, and where extra rays could do serious harm in the not too long-term.

I personally am not a fan of tanned people in particular, and certainly do not share any common ground with the boys interviewed on the radio who wanted to look like Brad Pitt so believed they needed a tan to match. When will people learn to stop using some airbrushed Hollywood airhead as a role model and get on with being themselves?!

I'm not really a fan of the tanned look. What is so attractive about it?

Why not just wear fake tan? It's safe and won't cause skin damage.

The lessons will apparently be teaching pupils just that - the benefits of fake tan over UV. I still think it's being reactive though, and would prefer a more widespread tackling of this image obsession.

I'd look stupid with a tan- I have red-head colouring (not the red hair anymore though :()

I don't see what the huge attraction is, personally.

I'm the same Danni. Originally red, and now gone a variable blond.

I prefer natural Northern European pastey white over tanned any day! :)

It is very sad when people endanger their health for the sake of their appearance.

We wouldn't need tans, hairdyes or anything like that if socioty was less image obsessed. Most pepole who have problems with tanning/dieting/spending hours on make up started out doing that stuff because of pepole making them feel ugly.

Alice is right. We need to teach people that we can all look beautiful without all looking the same.
