So instead of going in a tanning bed and wasting money or getting a spray tan and turning orange, try just laying out in the sun. There are ways to tan fast outside and I will tell you the ways!
Tan during tanning hours. Tanning hours range between 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The peak hours are between noon and 2 p.m., this is when the sun is at its highest point and is directly above you. If you choose to tan during peak hours you will tan faster but if you have extremely fair skin, you should be careful because within 30 minutes you will burn.
Check the day's UV Index. The higher the index, the faster you will tan outdoors. The UV Index can be found on websites such as weather.com by typing in the zip code of your tanning location.
Apply a tanning oil product to your skin before tanning. This will hold in your skin's moisture and help the temperature of the skin to heat quickly once outdoors. Most oils remain on the skin even after you go inside, which helps your tan develop without you ever knowing it. Mr favorite is drama queen. You kind fun that oil or any other oils at your nearest tanning salon or maybe even your nearest super market.
Face the sun strategically. To get a tan faster outdoors, you should be sure that the sun is hitting you at the strongest angle possible. Look at the ground to see where your shadow is being cast, then position yourself so that you are directly in line with your shadow. The stronger the sun hits you, the faster you tan.
