THERE is now a sun cream available from Amazon that says it can “burn fat” AND help you tan, with or without the sun.
As with all things, if it sounds too good to be true then it most likely is. However, before we write it off as another fad, it’s worth taking at to see if any of the claims could be true.
Us Brits go crazy for the sun, probably because we see it very rarely, so when it does come out, we can’t resist stripping off for some much-needed vitamin D.

Sunshapers sun cream says it is a “game-changer” for sun care, as it combines protection with a highly effective thermogenic fat burner to support weight loss and fitness goals.
The Prebiotic Protection Sun Cream by Sunshapers is a snip at just £9.99 and claims to not only protect from UVA and UVB rays, but also “burn fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite while inhibiting the growth of new fat cells, including stubborn belly fat”.

There is a legal disclaimer, which says: "Sunshapers contains active natural ingredients proven to shrink fat cells and burn cellulite. Individual results cannot be guaranteed."
