Change your eye colour and skin tone wit -

Change your eye colour and skin tone wit

Imagine going a gorgeous golden colour without having to bake for hours in the sun or use a fake tan. To make your skin colour change chemically, all you would need to do is pop a pill or apply a cream.

You may soon be able to alter your skin tone, and maybe even your eye colour, as easily and as often as you dye your hair but with a lot less mess ? while protecting your skin from sun damage and cancer.

Scientists are finally beginning to understand the mechanisms behind tanning. And rather than just making it possible to darken pigments it has become clear that it should be just as easy to lighten skin tone, too, an idea now being taken up by cosmetic companies.

So whether you are a redhead who fancies a deep, dark skin colour and black hair, or if you are black-skinned or Asian and would rather be a fair-skinned blond with blue eyes, all you have to do is take a tablet or slap on a cream for a couple of weeks. Or at least until you fancy changing again.

The cosmetics firms are excited and Avon has already filed a patent for a skin lightening process that takes advantage of this latest knowledge.

Previous work by Fisher has shown hairs tend to go grey when melanocytes at their roots die off. Other research suggests this can be remedied by applying chemicals that trigger melanin production or cause genes to express it.

Latest glaucoma drugs have shown melanin levels in the iris can be influenced chemically, causing eye colour to change.

So, in theory, the mechanisms that decide eye colour could also be manipulated chemically or genetically.
