How to get tan on the go without the sunscreen?

Here are 10 tips to help you get the best result from your tan.

A local tanning salon owner has warned us to beware of using sunblock to tan on our skin.

This week, local tanner Chris Davenport gave us his tips for getting the best results with sunblock.

“I can say that you will definitely see a lot more of a tan from using sunblocks, especially when you are using a sunblock with a lot of SPF, because the sunblock absorbs more UV rays and gives you more tan.”

Mr Daventon, who runs the Anchorage Tanning Centre, said that if you are not using a UV blocker, your skin should be able to tan for about 10 minutes before it starts to tan.

“When you do not use a UV block, it can look like your skin is drying out.”

So if you do use a sun block with a UV Block, you are probably using the wrong kind of sunscreen.

“Just like with any product, you need to use it properly to see the results you want.”

For example, if you put it on for 10 minutes and then you don’t touch your skin for five minutes, you might get more sun damage.

“We have contacted the local tannery for comment and will update this story if we hear back.
