Lovely Natural Tan Without the Smell! (Using Kitchen Ingredients!)

I was browsing on VitalJuice and came across this post about a self tanner to use at home in your tub with ingredients found in your kitchen! All you need is black tea bags, boiling water, and a spray bottle!

See the post here.

"Required time: About 30-40 minutes



Skill level: Goof-proof
Ingredients:
4 black tea bags
2 cups boiling water
Sponge or spray bottle
Optional:
Body lotion
Pure cocoa powder


Instructions:
When water has boiled, add the tea bags to steep. Leave in for 10-15 minutes, or until tea is dark and cool enough to touch.
In the meantime, take a shower to ensure your skin is oil- and sweat-free. Afterwards, make sure skin is completely dry. Stand on something you don't mind getting dirty. If using a sponge, drench it in the tea and wipe all over your body. If using a spray bottle, fill it with tea and spray evenly. Let skin air-dry and apply another coat for a deeper shade. Tea will stain clothes if wet, so make sure you're all dry before dressing. The "tan" should last 3-4 days. Optional: For bonus color, mix cocoa powder into body lotion until you reach desired color and apply for an all-over bronzing boost."

Great idea, VitalJuice! Have you ever tried a homemade self tanner? What's your favorite way of tanning? Share your answers to these along with post suggestions in the comments!
