Scientists have developed a tiny implant that be placed under the skin to give a three-month tan without using sunbeds, it emerged today.

The capsule is no bigger than a grain of rice but it is implanted under the skin and stimulates the production of melanin.

By releasing the chemical, the skin would become darker and could resemble a healthy bronzed tan.

Although the implant was initially developed by medics in order to alleviate skin conditions, experts believe it could be taken up by the beauty industry.

An estimated three million people a year use sunbeds and any products that could improve tanning are likely to be popular. Millions more use spray tans.

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, hello

With the Lights out it's less dangerous
Here we are now entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now entertain us
A mulatto an albino
A mosquito my libido

It's so stupid it's not even funny gaah.gif This industry is just going to hell so fast, totally unregulated territory so I wouldn't be too excited about this, as opposed to sunshine it most likely has none of the benefits but all of the gloss and chemicals sad2.gif

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
