Looking Great and Feeling Great Don’t Have to Be Separate Things

melanotan-before-and-afterLooking at health in a different way

The relation of health and beauty has been a rather odd one for a very long time. There was a time when the distinction seldom even really came up. For quite a while though, society seemed set on the idea that if someone looked good than they were obviously healthy as well. It’s an understandable mistake to make. For much of human history people really didn’t have much in the way of a diagnostic infrastructure. The best tool people had to measure health really was human vision. The fact that people didn’t have a very long lifespan in the early days of history also factors in.

People simply didn’t have as much time to notice the signs of preventable illness starting to encroach on a life. Today things are very different. The past few decades have given people a chance to not only see the effect of different lifestyles, but even understand it on a molecular level. This has opened up a few interesting opportunities. The first is to decide to stop doing things which increase beauty but decrease health. One of the best examples of this is tanning. It’s also given people the opportunity to use modern technology to get the effects of those actions, like having a tan, in a healthy manner.

Healthy effects on a molecular level

Getting a tan without the problems associated with tanning might seem like a contradiction at first. It’s possible thanks to a molecular understanding of the tanning process. Not to mention a new tool which can trigger that molecular effect, melanotan. What makes the healthy difference is the fact that melanotan operates by starting the tanning reaction before rather than after skin damage occurs after one’s been in the sun for a while. This means that someone can take melanotan, go out into the sun for a healthy amount of time, and still get a tan. This instantly bypasses all of the negative effects of tanning while leaving one with a great looking tan.
