Nail Salons may pose Skin Cancer Risk

Recent studies have shown that weekly exposure to the UV lights used in nail salons to dry and cure your mani and pedi may offer similar cancer risks to tanning beds.  We strongly recommend that you avoid the UV dryers and allow your nails to dry naturally.  It is also possible in some salons to turn off the lights and only use the fans to help speed drying.  Ask.  And at a minimum bring your own 30+ sunscreen to your salon and ask that it be applied instead of lotion at the end of your service.   Please don't take unncessary risks with the your health.
