    how hot does it have to be outside to get a good tan?

    temperature wise. Right now its really sunny but only about 50 degrees and I was wondering if that is hot enough to go get a tan? I was also wondering how long you guys tan for outside to notice some good changes. or doe it take multiple times? thanks !

    As far as I now the temp. doesn't matter as long as it's sunny. I've gotten tans when it's cold out but really sunny.

    Edit: It usually takes multiple times but some seem to respond sooner then others.

    Being in SoCal i thought you'd have a tan from last summer

    50 degrees is definitely not warm enough lol. Try and find the UV Index, if it is 9+, then u will get a tan (all depending on how much time u spend outside)

    However, try tanning cream first. It's safer and quicker.

    EDIT: Temp doesn't matter, but usually when it's 50, the sun aint strong enough. IE: U can get a tan at the snow, cuz the sun is strong and UVI is high.

    bump. anyone know about how long I should be out there for? is 30 minutes sufficient?

    oh and another thing, sun screen wont affect my tan correct? It just protects my skin from cancer and such?

    sorry for all the noob questions. heh. Im new to this tanning thing, bodybuilding has changed me.

    I think a lot of sun screen holds off a tan. Try get one that allows a tan, we have one here called "Le Tan" (no we don't speak french here) and that works well when you're out in the sun.

    I don't think 30 minutes would be sufficient enough on a 50 degree day. Go out for the day, like 2-3 hours, just walk around downtown or whatever. Or go for a run. But wear sun screen..

    actually i live here in s. fla and even when it's really cloudy, like it's bout to rain... if you're out at the beach or pool, you'll still get tanned/burned. Has to do with the sun rays not temperature.

    Ummm...it's the sun that tans you, not the temperature. That's why you can still get sunburned in the winter (didn't know that, did you?) and doctors advise using sunscreen year-round.

    If it's 20 degrees and sunny as hell, by all means break out the Speedo and sunbathe in your backyard. Get a jump start on summer.

    It depends what latitude you're at, what time of year it is and the weather conditions ( obviously sunny would be best ) ... not really what temperature it is.

    For example, you could be in a place like Bogota in Colombia ( right near the equator in tropical South America ) when it's cool and chilly ( due to the altitude ) and tan easier than in say a sunny 90 degree September day in southern California.

    Temperature means absolutely nothing. I just got back from skiing in CO and I got burnt the first day and it never got above 25 degrees. The higher the elevation you're at the thinner the air and the faster the sun can burn you. If you're at a high elevation you have to be extremely careful not to stay out in it too long without a good sunscreen.

    I don't think you NEED it to be hot, but I'm pretty sure it helps. The hotter it is, the more energy is coming from the sun, the more energy that hits your skin, the tanner you get

    The sun rays can go through clouds...The uv rays that damage the skin...You can get a sunburn or tan..same thing...When you're in 15degree weather and it's raining with no sunshine at all....It's true!
