    has anyone heard about the barbie pill?

    it has been developed in australia and is currently undergoing final tests. apparently it will be avalible in 2 years time.

    what it does is activate the body's natural tanning mechanism giving you a natural looking tan without any sunlight.
    it will also protect the skin from UV light as the body has already started its nautral protection process.

    it has been developed to help reduce skin cancer cases, but i can totally see it being taken by everyday people to give them a tan.

    so is this the end of sun beds, fake tanning products etc etc.......

    i would certainly take them

    Urgh. I can't seem to be WHITE (I tried this summer to refrain from ALL sunlight and use sunscreen like it was breathing air) or TAN. I'm just an in-betweeny. I would take this pill, proven that it's approved and safe.

    Soon after its release we will see articles and Oprah shows on people who are addicted to Barbie Pills..or people who overdosed on the pill.

    Ugh it would be a bad thing if I took this. I'm already skinny enough. And I'd look terrible with a tan! I like my porcelain skin. (Except when people come up to me and have to announce YOU ARE THE PALEST PERSON I'VE EVER SEEN!) The horny part of it doesn't sound too bad though... :innocent:

    I just saw a pill like this in a commercial (Elusun?), just without the advertised side effects!

    (It was a sketchy commercial, I thought. :unsure: )

    I would be too afraid to take it, plus I like having fair skin :innocent:

    Hopefully it doesn't get into the wrong hands...

    ie: Paris Hilton/Britney Spears/Lindsay Lohan :rolleyes:
