Default Health warning to fake tanners.

Quote:
A “cocktail” of chemicals in bestselling lotions may pose a risk to a person’s health such as fertility problems, birth defects and even cancer, experts said.

Dangerous ingredients can also include hormone-disrupting compounds – which can harm babies – as well as carcinogens including formaldehyde and nitrosamines.

The increased use of fake-tan products can also have skin irritants and chemicals linked to allergies, diabetes, obesity and fertility problems.

I hope 'Essex girls' dont think they can now use it as a contraceptive.


I'm getting fed up with so many warning about this that and the other.

Are you?

Public health messages are of limited use. You take notice because you're educated and health-savvy but you don't need the warnings as you already look after yourself; in fact they simply serve to irritate. Those that actually would benefit from health warnings either don't notice them, or find them irrelevant.

Begs the question.. what's the point?

I enjoy a pint of beer each night for it's health benefits. The other pints are for my witty comebacks and flawless dance moves.

I know people like this too, their skin looks like old boot leather, horrid! I am naturally quite tanned but even if I wasn't I would have no desire to use fake tan or the like, I think it looks awful and very cheap.

But why? There's not much less feminine than that?

That young lass, I bet she's quite pretty without all that gubbins on.

No not at all. The complete opposite. I think it's about time people realised the dangers of all these products and man made chemicals. They're killing us.

Did you know some ingredients in sun tan lotions are carcinogenic? It's not a laughing matter, but it is laughable.

I only use it on my legs, not to make them brown but to match the colour of the rest of me. Nobody wants to see fat pasty white legs as I cycle past.

Is that fake tan?

Why would somebody do that to themselves?

The average "Essex girl" has a face and skin tone that acts as a very effective contraceptive as far as I am concerned.

No offence to girls who come from Essex, who are delightful and lovely.
Alcohol is not a word in my Vodkabulary, however I looked it up on Whiskypedia and found that if you drink too much it's likely Tequilya!

I was very careful to differentiate between Essex Girls and Girls from Essex.

The former can come from anywhere.

I'm sure you are very lovely with your sensible makeup and non-orange skin.
