CINCINNATI - What if you didn't have to put sunscreen all over your body? Doctors think they can find a way to make a sunscreen pill that would make lotion unnecessary.
British researchers say coral has its own natural barrier to ultraviolet radiation. Scientists are working to take those chemicals and develop a pill.
If they can get it to work, your body would be able to block UV rays from the inside out.
It is still being developed, so for now, you should stick with sunscreen.
