    proper way to tan?

    i'm not gona compete in bbing or anything, i just wanna know a "proper" way to tan, since its so sunny here for a few days.
    such things could be helpful: time, spf (i'm chinese, i tan well, but my skin tone right now is liek white white), positioning, etc.

    Just start out with a high SPF and work your way down over time. No special position or anything just make sure to rotate every so often so you tan evenly.

    depends on how you tan really. If you burn easily and it doesn't seem as though that is true as to what you said. I'd just go out for a couple of hours with proper sunscreen/tanner on and you'll be cool

    for indoor tannign you may want to build up to a higher level or time. Start off with abotu 10 min. (or what they recommend) and then go from there witha nice bronzer or tan enhancer to go with it
