Biotech Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals is to test an implant that can provide a tan, protect skin against UV rays and treat skin cancer precursors.
The Australian company says its drug produces eumelanin, a pigment which can protect skin from UV exposure.
The product, administered through an implant "the size of a grain of rice" under the skin, would allegedly give you a sun-kissed look for a few months as a side effect.
I don't know what to think of the news but I do know that I'm ready to swallow, spread or even be implanted with anything that can protect my skin from the old prune effect.
