Found a way to get a tan without sunlight and Solarium

Get smooth and beautiful tan every girl dreams of. In the summer time to do it is not so difficult, but with the onset of cold weather always comes a Solarium. For those who do not want to expose your skin long «cooking», there are bronzers and other cosmetics, «tint» the skin. But recently, according to the journal Cell Reports, a group of scientists from the USA managed to combine the convenience and cosmetic approach with the traditional.

Researchers have created a molecule that penetrates the skin and causes there the formation of the pigment melanin, which controls how dark our skin. In fact, does the same thing ultraviolet, when we sunbathe. The fact that melanin production answer the SIK2 gene and related enzyme that controls the behavior of MITF. It is the ultraviolet part of the solar spectrum triggers a cascade of reactions which causes the skin cells to produce melanin. In their experiments, the scientists synthesized protein YKL 06-061, which neutralizes the molecule SIK2 and force «includes» MITF for a few days until the concentration of the enzyme SIK2 is restored.

During a series of tests it was found that the coating of the skin even a small amount of YKL 06-061 makes her start «tan» in the first hours of exposure, and the tan lasts on the skin for about 10 days. Apart from the purely cosmetic effect, the opening of scientists is important for practical medicine. According to who, prolonged sun exposure is the main cause of developing melanoma and other forms of skin cancer. As stated by one of the authors of research David Fisher,

«we believe that We have opened a new strategy for the prevention of skin cancer. Malignant tumors most often striking is the skin, and most of them are associated with UV exposure. Our approach allows you to replace the molecules of the bright pigments in the skin cells on their dark «brothers», without affecting them by ultraviolet radiation».
