Is there a safe way to tan other than lights, the sun, or sprays?

    In a word, NO. Tanning by any means is damaging skin tissue. Some may even suspect that John Boehner is living proof that chemical tanning affects the brain.

    The sun is the most natural way. you can brown up and protect your skin from UV with virgin coconut oil. The fatty acids in the oil protect the skin while allowing it to tan as well.

    Actually, yes! As someone who competes in pageants, but is very skin conscious due to several people I know suffering from skin cancer, I refuse to use tanning beds, and prays. I sometimes lay out in the sun but I use a wicked high SPF so nothing really happens! There are the bronzing lotions! They do not work over-night, they gradually darken your skin, and once you achieve the level of darkness you want, you can switch to a regular lotion, and apply the bronzing lotion every now and again when you see the tan start to fade! Jergen's is a really good brand! I hope this helped.
