I’ve been meaning to write this post for awhile, since the #KylieJennerChallenge post on lip injections post I wrote a little while ago.
Girls and women alike are using tan injections to make their skin darker, say what? This cannot be healthy! From what I’ve learnt it is a chemical compound called Melanotan II which darkens the skin – this has not been fully tested or approved for consumption and yet thousands of people across the world are ordering this product to give themselves a fake tan. I simply cannot believe that something that can make you change color can possibly be any good for you!
Recently a man called Ryan Ruckledge went on ITV This Morning to talk about his addiction to tanning injections, to date he claims he has spent £25,000 on the product.
He said ‘I get nausea, stomach cramps, dizzy spells and panic attacks. I don’t know if it’s from that though, I might just be being dramatic because I’m quite a dramatic person.’
WHAT!? This young man should stay away from this potentially harmful and untested product. However, you can tell he is clearly addicted, also saying ‘‘It’s an addiction. I could never walk down the street pale, I’d feel physically sick. I just hate being pale,’
I’m extremely worried about the usage of tanning injections and how many of our young it may be affecting.
Let me know your thoughts!
