How long will it take to get a tan?

Everyone’s skin is different, and the tanning process occurs at different speeds depending on a person skin type. Those with darker complexions usually tan faster than those with fair skin. The range is about 10-20 consecutive sessions (ever other day, and no more than 4 times per week) will give you a base tan. How long it takes to get a tan also depends on whether or not you use a professional indoor tanning lotion to maximize the tanning results from UV exposure.
