CVS to Ditch All Sun Tanning Products!

If the heat in New York City has anyone ready to hit the sand and lay out tan, you may be surprised to run into some loopholes if CVS is your skin-bake-savvy drugstore of choice. The mass retailer is getting rid of all sun care products under SPF 15.

On a mission to bring awareness to how important it is to protect your skin, CVS teamed up with Johnson & Johnson and the American Academy of Cancer in a new “Long Live Skin” campaign which prompted the retailer to get rid of sun tanning products. En-route to greater skin, CVS will be rolling out weekly deals on sunscreen products, a moving social campaign, and post tips on their site to help achieve healthy radiant skin.
