    Has anyone tried tanning pills with success and without side effects and can they recommend?

    I took some once. That's me in the middle 2 days after taking them:

    On a serious note, they're probably a waste of money. Only healthy way to get a tan is to go on holiday imo

    Best way to take tanning pills is to put them up your rectum. You mightn't get an all over tan but at least you'll have a brown finger

    I have used both Boots Sunsublim and imedeen tan optimizer before my holidays. I have very fair skin and now swear by them as your skin is less likely to burn and you do get a good tan. My daughter who has red hair went to Mexico and never burnt but tanned very well.

    The imedeen tan optimizer is 20.42 half price at Boots at the moment. I don't think you will find them cheaper.

    I really wouldn't recommend them!!! You're essentially ingesting dye... would you drink a bottle of hair dye or dylon?!?! As far as I'm aware, these pills are not allowed to be sold ANYWHERE in the USA and we all know the Americans love their dodgy pills! It can cause deposits of crystals in the eyes and also damage the liver... is it really worth the risk?

    Dylon... Hair dye? I dont think you'd be able to dye your hair or your jeans with tomato and palm fruit extract.. but still..

    I think theres some dodgy ones out there, the Imedeen seems one of the more harmless options though.
    I personally wouldn't put chemicals in my body if I didn't need it.. (Id rather my vitamins etc were from whole foods etc). But if its something you want to do then just do your research, check the clinical trials too.. I don't think asking here would be sufficient tbh, not where your health is concerned x

    I was making a comparison... I'm not saying these tablets actually contain hair dye! It's not something we naturally need so why stick it in our body? These tablets regularly cause problems with the eyes, especially if the OP is planning to take them over a long period which I presume they are. Why not use some fake tan and get the same result? Yes, it may take time to find the best product for you/your skin so you don't look like an orange but a bit of effort versus crystals in my eyes? I know which I'd prefer. These tablets are in the same family as beta-carotene so will cause an orange hue in most people anyway!

    I have been taking Imedeen tablets all the time for the last three years, My doctor says it is fine and my skin is in a very good condition now as it used to be dry, it most certainly is not orange. I started taking them not for the tanning bit but to stop me burning, a side effect is having skin which is very moisturised. It is also available to be sold in America!
