How to Make Your Own Homemade Tanning Lotion, 1/2 cup unscented white lotion and 1/3 cup of pure cocoa powder and mix together until no clumps are visible. Apply moisturizing lotion before applying tanning lotion for better results. It will appear much darker in the bowl then on your skin. As you apply to skin it shows automatically how dark it will be. Keep lotion in another empty lotion bottle.

DIY fake tan. You can wash your skin with a strong brewed black tea, coffee, or cocoa. This will give your skin a light tan, and it will also make it more elastic. Another good idea is to create ice cubes from coffee or strong tea, and wipe your face with one each morning. This will give your skin a light golden tone without tanning.
