Teens in Illinois will soon be banned from tanning.  A new law prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from using tanning beds.  Supporters argue that the UV rays in the beds put minors at a higher risk for skin cancer.  The new law takes effect next Wednesday, January 1st.  

Teens will still be allowed to get a spray tan.
