2/ Black tea tan

This method requires a little more time in the beginning but which has the advantage of easy application all over the body.

What you will need:

  • A high quantity of black tea

1/ Infuse 5 dessertspoons of black tea in 1/8 litre of boiling water for 15 minutes.

2/ Strain it and pour it into an empty spray can. (You can also use the end of some cloth soaked in the tea to apply it).

3/ Apply it to the areas of the body you would like to tan and allow it to dry. Add more layers until you achieve the desired colour. Allow it to dry completely between each layer.
