How to Work Up a Tan

Let’s face it, we’re obsessed with tan skins, aren’t we? Think about it, these days, you’ll hardly ever make it through three pages of a vogue magazine without noticing a single gorgeous lady with the nicest bronze tan of your envy. We know that tanned people stand out from the rest of the pale crowd, which is why we want to get that tan no matter what we have to do.

Now, just because we have ways of getting a tan on our skins very fast these days, doesn’t mean that all the methods available to us are the safest. This is why you should know a little bit about the tanning methods available to you – read about them here.

The Sun Bath

Sun bathing is the most natural way you can get a tan and also the only way to work up a tan absolutely for free. If you live in a sunny area, you just need to free up a day to bask in the sun (preferably on the beach so you have an excuse to not be wearing much clothes) and you’ll get a nice tan. However, unless you can find enough privacy to be completely undressed, you’ll be stuck with tan lines.

Tanning Tablets

Taking tablets to get a darker skin? Now that sounds a bit fishy but it really isn’t. Tanning tablets are completely safe to use and can ensure that you get enough of the pigment all over your body. As a result, you’ll have the realest and most thorough tan across your body.

Tanning Beds

These beds expose you to a lot of UV in a short amount of time, causing you skin to tan up evenly and quickly. This would’ve been an amazingly effective way to get a tan but too much exposure to UV can be very harmful.
