For the safest, natural looking tan, apply a self-tanning moisturizer every day after your shower. To avoid streaks, rub it in really well and go over your skin with a dry washcloth to buff away any excess. Dont forget to wash your hands well afterwards, to avoid orange knuckles. This will help you gradualy build up a tan in about 3-5 days. Even after your tan has been built up, continue applying the moisturizer every day.
To get even darker, go out in the sun for an hour every day without any spf on. Lay on your stomach for half an hour, and when the time is up, flip to lay on your back for another half an hour. Dont stay out any longer then 1 hour total without any suncreen on though, as this would greatly increase your chances of skin cancer.
Within a few weeks of following those 2 steps every day, you should have a beautiful caramel tan.
Good luck! :)
