  • Nighttime.......otherwise you risk sun damage, resulting in future skin cancer.

  • I'm not big on tanning, but I would say put on some sunscreen and go out in the early morning/afternoon when the sun isn't too strong.

  • I have a friend who claims the best tanning hours are from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. I never lay out so i wouldn't know.

  • never! Skin cancer is real! I have a friend who just had 5 different spots removed that were cancerous. It was from growing up in a sunny and warm climate, not purposely exposing herself to the sun. Try a sunless tanner if you are looking to get darker.
