Tanning in a pill? Yep, it’s for real. Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital have invented a pill that will tan you by increasing your skin’s melatonin, the chemical that gives your skin its color. That means a natural looking tan without ever setting foot in the sun. This new drug isn’t just for aesthetics – if you are more susceptible to skin cancer, or have had it in the past, increasing your skin’s melatonin is a natural defense against UV rays. So, you’d be getting the look of a tan and natural SPF all at the same time. Thank you, science!
Woah! this could be really helpful for a lot of people. First and foremost tanning can be really harmful to your skin, and can cause skin cancer! Secondly, it's so hard to tan and to get everything even without burning. But my favorite part is that it gives people who are prone to skin cancer a chance to get tan! Not only that but it can help those people build up defenses against UV rays!
