I use sunbeds, nasal sprays and drops to get my deep glow – people say I’ll die from cancer but it's fine, I’m alive | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed that she uses sunbeds, nasal sprays and tanning drops to get a deep golden glow.

Despite the dangers and risks involved with such tanning practices, the blonde-haired beauty fan recently took to social media to share her tanning routine.

Posting on TikTok, Maddi Cordell opened up about how she gets her skin looking tanned. 

In a recent clip, the beauty fan said: “Hey girls, I always get questions on my tan, so I’m just going to talk through it.

“I actually use sunbeds and nasal sprays and tanning drops.

“Two sprays up each nostril every night that you remember and two drops under the tongue whenever I remember.”

Maddi then shared a clip of her legs in a sunbed as she moved her knickers to show off her tan line.

She continued: “And this is usually what I look like after I’ve had a sunbed.” 

When asked: “How many times a week do you go [on a sunbed]?”, Maddi replied “Only once or twice, sometimes more if I feel like it. 

“But when I was first building my colour, I’d go three/four times.”

Maddi explained that she goes on the sunbed for eight to 12 minutes at a time.

Another social media user asked: “Do you ever get side effects from using these?”, to which Maddi responded “Not with this brand, no! 

“But I do always use them before bed so maybe that helps. 

“With other brands, previously, they’ve made me feel so sick/rough!”

Maddi’s clip has clearly left many open-mouthed, as it has quickly amassed a whopping 251.6k views.

It has 7,432 likes, 152 comments and 311 shares.

Social media users were quick to take to the comments, to warn Maddi of the dangers of such activities. 

One person said: “This nasal spray is DANGEROUS. and not FDA approved. DO NOT USE!” 

A third commented: “Super irresponsible!!!! Do better!!!! #melanomasucks.” 

Someone else chimed in: “That is insane.. NOT SAFE.”

Whilst another user claimed: “Do NOT use the nasal spray for tanning!! It can have horrible side effects like melanoma, and death!! As someone in the medical field I do know!!” 

One TikToker wrote: “Gives cancer” to which Maddi replied “Go comment this on every single TikTok about vaping too.”

Another social media user posted: “Seems like it’s a week since u posted. Are you still alive? Saw some doctors telling how dangerous it is..” to which Maddi commented laughing emojis and joked “Jesus christ yes I am alive.”

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), sunbeds are as dangerous as smoking.

Like the sun, they give out harmful UV rays that damage the DNA in your skin cells.

Over time, this may lead to malignant melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – studies have shown.

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), there is significant evidence to show that using tanning beds causes melanoma.

They report that sunbeds increase the risk of skin cancer by up to 20 per cent, and also state that they have no positive benefits to our health.

Cancer Research backed this statistic, adding that " there is no such thing as a safe tan from UV radiation".

When it comes to nasal sprays, some nasal spray sellers insist their products are safe – but the British Association of Dermatologists' Dr Catherine Borysiewicz says the only safe tan is fake tan.

She said: These products have not been studied properly, you don’t know what you are using, that’s the bottom line.

"These products are very, very dangerous. They can potentially lead to cancer.

"I talk about the skin risks, but who knows what else it might be doing. It’s incredibly worrying.

"If you’re using Melanotan, stop. Don’t use it any more and really importantly make sure your skin is assessed and checked.

"Be honest with the doctors that you’re seeing so they’re aware of the potential risks you may have been exposed to so your moles can be properly checked and analysed if needed."

According to Tan Junkie, tanning tongue drops are oral supplements that contain a synthetic peptide called Melanotan II. 

These products are not licensed for use in the UK and have not undergone any testing to determine their safety or effectiveness. 

The long-term effects of using tanning tongue drops are unknown, as these products have not undergone any testing. 

The active ingredient, Melanotan II, has been linked to a number of side effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, dizziness, loss of appetite, facial flushing, and increased pigmentation of the skin and nails.
