The new "instant" sun-tan pill being developed by scientists sounds appealing: no more visits to the solarium; no more embarrassingly patchy results from fake tan creams. But what if this pill works too well? The boss might conclude from your healthy bronze glow that you're getting too much time off, and up your workload. And isn't the point of a tan to let everyone know that you've just been on holiday? Having one all year round takes away the fun. What's more, who wants to live in a world where everyone resembles Des O'Connor, Judith Chalmers, David Dickinson and Robert Kilroy-Silk? We say: keep tanning natural.
