The man in these photos claimed on Reddit that he injected himself with an unregulated synthetic hormone to help him get a darker tan.
In photos shared on Reddit, user n3glv is apparently seen transitioning from having pale, fair skin to having extremely dark skin. He claims the drug Melanotan-II, a drug that increases levels of the pigment melanin in the skin, is the blame for his darker look. The drug in question has never been approved by government agencies and has not made it out of clinical trials. What do you think of this??
