Melanotan II is the drug that promises to deliver a perfect tan without the exposure to the sun or UV radiation from a tanning booth.
I have dark skin (olive complexion), and I used to worship the sun, slathering on the baby oil and even lying on tin foil to attract the rays! The darker I got the better I felt. I competed with myself every year. What an idiot…now it is known that this causes skin cancer and as an adult I am gooping on the SPF40! So this drug sounds decent, yet I will not be running out anytime soon to get myself a supply. I am content with how I look and besides, who knows what the side effects are.
Ohh wait, glad I mentioned that – hmm…studies show that there are two side effects that have been detected.
- immediate weight loss within one to two weeks of taking the pill! – Hmm do I have to think this through!? tan and dropping some excess weight. Nah – I will rely on good ole sweat to try to drop the pounds, but…I do have that disc problem that acts up every time I try to do anything remotely athletic. hmm…. I need more.
- increased sexual libido– WHAT? ok, so you take the pill and you are in a constant state of arousal – or near it anyway. Let’s see, my husband comes home, I am tan, skinny and horny – hmm don’t think he’ll complain.
OK – so, why am I just hearing about this pill now? A pill that will give you a tan, help you lose weight, and increase your sexual appetite? Are they for real? Sign me up! But I will have to wait somewhere between 10-15 years while they study this pill some more and make sure it isn’t all ‘too good to be true’, which I am sure they will probably find out – that it is!
(As in stated in one of my previous post, a comment says that beauty is internal – I couldn’t agree more, so why am I still contemplating taking this drug if it is approved?)
