    Keeping A Tan

    I tend to get a nice light brownish-red color when I go tanning, which looks good. BUT it fades away after maybe three days. How can I preserve the tan, or keep it longer? Should I go more times in one week? Go consecutive days?

    Umm, yeah, I believe tanning every few days would keep you darker and tanned, yes.

    Makes pretty straightforward sense to me.

    If you are planning to tan more than once a week, I would def recommend supplementing melanin. That is, assuming you are white. It should also help keep pigmentation in your skin longer

    I've never taken melanin supplements directly, although I've known people to do so with varying results. These are usually "tanning activators" that have a bunch of artificial ingredients, colorants, Beta-Carotene, and/or Canthaxanthin, which have been banned by the FDA because they are dangerous. They can also make your skin orange like a ooompa from Willy Wonka.

    You can take a good multi with Vitamin Cm B-1, and copper then supplement with some aminos (L-Cysteine, phenylalanine, L-Tyrosine). These are the ingredients for your body to make melanin naturally....always better IMO
