    Things you will need:
    Lotion or a moisturizer
    Cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • Start out by combining 1/2 cup of unscented white lotion in a bowl with 1/3 cup of pure cocoa powder.
    Mix together with a fork. Make sure to break up any clumps and blend together well.
    Adjust the recipe to match your desired color. The lotion will appear darker in the bowl than it will on your skin. Keep adding a little bit of cocoa powder at a time until you reach your desired shade.
    Smooth over entire body evenly.
    Apply daily for a gradual deep tan.

  • Make your own tanning oil

    Recipe #2:

    3/4 Gallon of Water
    1 pound of Fresh Carrots (with peels on)
    2 cups of Brown Sugar

  • Rinse carrots and cut into thin slices
    Bring water to a boil
    Add carrots and brown sugar
    Reduce heat and simmer for 3 hours
    Turn of stove and let cool
    Pour through a strainer to remove the liquid from the clumps

  • Make your own tanning lotion

    Choose either coffee grounds of tea bags (Caffeinated)
    Unscented White Lotion

  • 1. Brew coffee of tea just like you normally would do. If using coffee, use enough grounds for an entire pot but only enough water to make 1 cup. If your using tea, use enough tea bags to make a gallon but only about 8 ounces of water.

    2. Mix enough lotion and coffee/tea to get your desired color. The more coffee or tea you add, the darker your tan will develop to be.

    3. Put in a spray bottle any apply.

  • To make your own outdoor tanning oil all you need is some iodine and olive oil! Just mix a few drops of iodine in with a cup of olive oil and you're good to go 😊

  • These recipes are wonderful and really work! No chemicals, no nasty smell, no skin cancer, no weird orange tint, very low cost and a great all natural tan! The color should last a few days to a week, just remember to exfoliate before you apply😊 Check out this website for more info:
