A model said something stupid? GTFO!
The supermodel’s latest gaffe: claiming she doesn’t use sun tan lotions because all of the chemicals they contain.
“I cannot put this poison on my skin,” Bundchen — who has appeared in ad campaigns for Nivea Sun products — said at the launch of her own organic skin care range, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. “I do not use anything synthetic.”
Instead, the leggy beauty says she protects herself from sun damage by only exposing herself to rays before 8 A.M.
However, cancer experts have been quick to question Bundchen’s expertise on the matter.
“Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer,” said Dolival Loao, head of dermatology at Brazil’s National Cancer Institute. “This is not any poison, when a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion.”
Give me a break. If Gisele really insisted on not using anything synthetic, she would never leave the house with makeup, self tanner, hair extensions, or fake eyelashes ever again. Since that won’t happen, she’s lashing out at something she used to endorse in order to gain publicity for something different she’s currently selling. If this “creates confusion” for anyone, they probably took all of their classes in a room with ramp access.
