DIY: Self Tanner With Black Tea Bags

DIY Self Tanner With Black Tea Bags

We all know chamomile tea will lighten your hair, now you can fake your tan with black tea. This homemade self tanner is an easy recipe and it won’t harm your skin cell’s DNA.

First you will need 3/4 cups of water, 3 teabags (black tea), 1/4 cup of lanolin and 1/4 cup of sesame oil.

First boil the water and use it to steep the teabags until the color turns strong. Then put 1/4 cup of the tea in a blender with the lanolin and sesame oil. Blend everything at low speed and slowly input the rest of the tea while still blending. Once you are done, take a sponge and start applying it on your body. Wait for the tea to completely dry on your body before dressing as it will stain.

The DIY self tanner should last you 3-4 days.
