A skin implant to make you tan?

First of all, dear readers, if you are still laying in tanning beds I beg you to please stop! It’s reportedly a one stop cancer shop…some say worse than laying on any beach! I want you to be readers for a very long time so let’s stick to those wonderful self tanners that are now out on the shelves. 

Now then, on to the big news!  Apparently scientists have discovered a way for us to tan without any risk whatsoever and without spending a moment in the sun! It’s a small implant the size of a grain of rice that will give you a nice brown tan for up to three  months. 

What do you think? Would you go for it? I personally love spending time on the beach and building a slow and steady tan with the use of sunscreen protection! It’s half the fun of holidaying! I know I’m going to get yelled at for saying that. However, I live in London where we see the sun about five days out of the year so I’ve always figured I was just soaking up Vitamin D that I’ve been missing throughout the year!
