Homemade Self-Tanner

This pin test was originally posted on CraftFail. I know it's August, but it's hard to get tan when you wear SPF 80 if you step outside even for a minute for fear of burning like a boiled lobster.

Healthy tea tan- steep 4 bags black tea in 2 cups water for 15 minutes. Shower and exfoliate, then spray or sponge mixture onto dry skin. Repeat for darker shades. Lasts 3-4 days.

At Home Sunless Tanning ~ Make black tea with 8-10 tea bags and 4 cups of water, and then put it in an empty spray bottle. Voila--no icky chemicals or damaging rays

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.

Best kept secret for an amazing tan...COCA COLA! Apparently this is used all the time in Australia. All you need is regular (not diet, flavored, or any generic brand) Coca Cola. Just rub it on, lay out in the sun for a while...and you'll get a dark NATURAL tan that lasts for months after.
