In the 80’s it was totally normal to bake in the sun with Sun-In spray or lemon juice in your hair and baby oil all over your body.
What were we thinking?
Although we’ve learned a lot since then when it comes to protecting your skin from the sun’s rays some people just don’t get it… this new trend involves rubbing Coca-Cola all over your body to get a dark tan fast!
Some claim Coca-Cola will help them tan faster. It started in 2006 when Australian entertainer Peter Andre revealed that he would soak himself in Coca-Cola before sunbathing.
The hack, which many swear by, is resurfacing again and is gaining so much momentum in the U.K. that Coca-Cola had to issue a statement on their website: “As much as we love Coca-Cola, we really wouldn’t recommend using it in this way. There is no sun protection factor in it at all – it’s a drink!”
For those who think baking in the sun with no SPF i s a good idea might I remind you of this guy, I call Sunburn Guy, that I blogged about last week…
Stay safe in the sun.
