Something you probally didn't know about coke!

There is so many things that are bad about coke. It gives you cellulite for one, and thats all I need to know to never drink coke again!
Thing is, coke is your best "tanning oil"! Ok so it's not tanning oil, but it gives you a strong fast beautiful tan, who would of thought?!

I know this because this method of smearing coke all over your body is used alot in Mozambique (i'm living there for a while now).
Don't understand why? Well, imagine this, your body is the skillet, the sun is the fire, and your full of sugars and caramels burning on you! It's all very new to me as well, but I did that today and boy did I get a tan! Look in to it! :)

I drink coke and do not give one about the effects I'm 21 and whatever happens happens.... But coke as tanning oil I'm there with you I live in sharm el sheikh Egypt and when the locals said use coke and you'll be really tan I was like yeah ok weirdo.... Little did I know I was idiot but if your a person that doesn't tan easily and most likely to burn don't use it..!!! As for skin cancer don't use sun beds and lock yourself in your house if the sun ever shines. Cancer is very very common in our world unfortunately don't stop your life because of it.. I'm lost 3 grandparents to cancer and I remember them doing there best to live life until the end.... Be happy people your negativity will kill you quicker than any cancer LIVE LIFE that's why your given one... End of... If you disagree no problem your entitled to your opinion I just don't want to hear it ill never revisit this site so fight with your self :). Best wishes, enjoy, and stop being a bore :)

yes it is also genetically involved. There is a way to not have as much celulite though... Exercise! Its not the weight that makes it look more its the fact of not moving and not bringing alot of blood circul;ation on your butt. Something like that!

i always thought you genetically were predetermined to have cellulite or not. nothing actually "causes" it per se. supermodels have it..but i know a girl who is pretty think in the legs but her thighs are smooth as can be. i think cola just has so much sugar that you gain weight from it, and the weight enhances the look of the cottage cheese! but thats just my humble thought process.

Not really. Once you put it on it dries up, you don't get all sticky, I thought that too!

Umm, clepiau is so right! Forget the Coke debate- Tanning is bad for you and can kill you whether you fo it naturally or not. Lots of times it takes 20 or 30 years- but not always- see below. Conversation With Miss Maryland: Even Teens Can Get Skin Cancer By Helen Fields- Posted 10/24/06 Brittany Lietz has a highly personal platform. The 21-year-old nursing student and newly crowned Miss Maryland was diagnosed with melanoma at age 20–a result, she thinks, of her obsession with tanning. After two dozen surgeries, Lietz is looking forward to spreading the word about the risk of skin cancer at the Miss America pageant on Jan. 29, 2007. Read the rest at BaltimoreGal

i know clepiau, but sometimes i want to change u know what i mean, tanning actually lessens my usage of make up hehe gloss and thats it it gives its own look

So what is the SPF of Coke? ;) Yeah, I'm not interested in tanning. It seems awesome when you're young, but when you start to notice fine lines around your eyes at the age of 24 (that's when I first noticed them, anyway) you realize all those people weren't kidding about the sun aging you. Now I'm all about sunscreen and retinol.

I've gotten that chain email, too. Makes you wonder how many people who read it went out into the fridge, grabbed a can of coke, and tried some of the tips. "Oh, wow! Coke really DOES clean the sh-t stains off the toilet seat!" Only thing is, because coke's so acidic, the next time you sit on the throne to take a crap, you smell burnt flesh and stand up to discover that half your ass is gone. Or still stuck to the toilet.
