Build a Base Tan
You don’t want your skin to burn, as this is when skin irritations and discomfort kick in. To avoid this, it’s critical that you establish a base tan. This is achieved by regular tanning in short sessions. Since everyone tans at different rates, one person many achieve their base tan in a few days, while another person will take weeks. In general, you’ll want to tan for eight out of twelve days. Be sure to start with just a few minutes in the beginning and then work yourself up. Once you have achieved the base tan, you can maintain it without worrying about burning the skin.
