TEXAS-As of yesterday, minors in the state of Texas can no longer use indoor tanning beds.
The state of Texas is one of five states that have decided to ban the use of tanning beds for all minors under 18.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, exposure of ultraviolet (UV) light is found more commonly during childhood, which increases the chances of skin cancer later in life.
California, Illinois, Nevada and Vermont are the other four states that will also take part in this ban.
