People Are Using Coca-Cola To Tan In A Dangerous New Trend


It's summer, and you want to work on your tan. You also want to cover yourself in a fine sheen of sticky liquid. There's a perfect way to do both: Coca-Cola.

Allure reports that a disturbing trend of slathering the skin with soda has health officials worried. Tanning in general isn't safe—the sun is constantly trying to kill us, and only our thinning ozone layer is doing anything to stop it. You should wear sunscreen! And if you want a summer glow, you can buy it in a bottle. Not a Coca-Cola bottle, but a spay tan bottle!
