Coca-Cola is for drinking, not for tanning!  The internet strikes again with the latest DIY project that encourages sun worshippers to take Coca-Cola, Pepsi or any cola and spray and pour it all over themselves in hopes of perfecting the perfect tan.  For the record, there is no sun protection from cola or any other beverage, which are mostly used to quench thirst. If anything the coloring used to darken the soda may appear to give you a darker skin color or perhaps the stickiness of the sugar will cling to dirt and sand to give you a "glistening" look (or perhaps some bits from ants) but we can positively say this is not a good idea.
