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 !

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.University of Florida '11

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..University of Florida '11

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.

Come off it, you live in Melbourne, it would be warmer their than California at the moment.
cold and raining i got caught in the rain on the walk home from school and the creek was flooded so i had to walk ALLLLL the way around!
Not to worry, being melbourne, it should hit 40 (105F) in no time.University of Florida '11
