I tan pretty easily. And today the UV rays are a 10 out of 10 and I'm going to the pool to tan. So are there any ways I can tan really easily and get a nice dark tan?

MY ROUTINE: I'm quite pale, but I've gotten dark as fuck over 1-2 months doing this:
-Base tan (weekdays): Hawaiian tropic SPF6 Dark Tanning Oil. Lie 30 minutes on your back, then 30 minutes on your stomach. Repeat as often as you can during the week. Moisturize with aloe during showers. Once you have a base tan...
-Get Maui Babe Browning Lotion (weekend tanning): This stuff is hands down the only thing that has worked on my otherwise pale-peachy skin!!! It turns you so dark, it's remarkable. There are ingredients that allow you to maximize UV absorption with minimal damage. I slather it on all over, and lounge under the midday sun on weekends. I live down where the UV index is quite high. 45 minutes on 1 side, 45 on the other side. If you're boating or something, don't worry. Just put on sunscreen after the 90 minutes... definitely do.
- I never tan my face because I do not want wrinkles there. I cover my face with a sunhat or book and listen to music while I tan. To match my face to my tan, I use Clinique's Sun-Kissed Face gelée before a light Corrector Cream with SPF.
I used to fake tan until I found out that DHA, the primary ingredient of most fake tan, is absorbed into your bloodstream in small quantities, and has been shown in certain studies to create permanent DNA mutations that can later turn cancerous. So in essence, there's no "good" way to darken your skin. I just opt for what people have been doing for thousands of years... hope this helped :) Message me if you have any questions
