    Natural tan by the beach, enjoy the sun and get the natural tan too.
    However, remember no tanning source is safe even too much natural tan can be dangerous too, because you can develop skin cancer.

    The best attitude when it comes to getting a tan is to think gradual. No one can or will get a great tan in one day, but you will after several days of being exposed to the sun – gradual effect.  Don’t harm your body simply because you want a tan. You may want to read my hub on tanning.

    The safest way to get a tan is gradually using sunscreen. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sun.

    i would say that a natural tan is best, but too much sun is not good.

    I use virgin coconut oil and never burn. I have fair, olive toned skin and get a nice healthy glow. Our bodies need so much sun as it is the best form of vitamin D we can get for our bones! The fat in coconut oil is the safest sunblock out there because it coats the skin while moisturizing it and keeping it safe from damage. Get some info on it! It's really great stuff for the skin!

    The safest tan is no tan at all. Exposure to sunlight that is strong enough to make you tan can also cause skin cancer over time. Sun burn greatly increases your risk of cancer as well as aging your skin quickly.

    If you want to look tanned, then a 'fake' tan is the best (not UV lamps though).

    The body does indeed manufacture vitamin D when the skin is exposed to daylight. This doesn't have to be direct sunlight.

    Using any kind of oil on the skin whilst sunbathing will effectively 'fry' your skin...not a good idea! It's OK as an aftersun treatment though.
