We all know that being out in the sun for too long isn’t great for our skin and with the harsh sun that often comes along with living in Australia, we want to protect our skin as much as possible.
So, to still get that striking tan, a lot of us head out for a spray tan or opt for at-home tanning options.
But now, there’s a new and very bizarre way to get your tan on:
Edible gummy bears…
That’s right, Scottish/British company Utan & Tone have invented “the world’s first edible tan supplement.”
Their website explains, “Tan Gummies help to accelerate and enhance the perfect bronze tone to pale skins, with and without the sun.”
They suggest that, for adults, optimum tanning results can be reached by sucking on two Tan Gummies per day, two weeks prior to sun exposure - like going on a holiday to Europe or Hawaii.
They can also be used on their own to achieve a light-golden colour, which will develop gradually over three or four weeks.
The gummies “allow potent actives to be held in the buccal cavity for a considerable time, resulting in ‘direct absorption’ through the membranes in the cheek walls.”
Remember! Any sun-induced tan is damaging to your skin as it accelerates ageing and also significantly increases your chances of developing skin cancer.
So slip, slop, slap, and be sure to not spend too much time in the sun!
