Ever wanted to get that golden tan that you always wanted but just don't have the money to buy tanning oil.If so this Instructable is for you.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

The recipe is quite simple. All you need are

Some iodine
Some refined olive oil


i was wondering if u could recommend me how long does it need to get a great golden tan by this instruction?i mean is 2 or 3 days and about 2-3 hr enough
Hmm it's okay thank you in anyway .. ^^
Oh thank you ^^ But is there any other way to make tan oil I mean without iodine with something maybe like carrot or coconut oil idk .. cuz I'm going tmw to the beach so there is no time to order it online!
I wouldn't recommend it, it's for your protection. Look for an alternative source. I think it's in some things they sell at Walmart

This iodine is it liquid or what?? How can I find it?'
You can find it pretty easily online. It's liquid, just mix the two together in equal parts
This olive oil / iodine treatment works very well. My sun-loving aunt has used this her whole adult life with no ill-effects and always had that much sought after "golden tan." Olive oil is wonderfully enriching for the skin and Iodine has a mild sunscreen effect, so this can be used for short tanning sessions. Besides, do you know how many chemicals are in commercial sunscreens? I like to be able to actually pronounce the ingredients that I put on my skin (and yes, you will smell like a salad)!
This Instructable should be in the FOOD section, not OUTDOORS.
does it give a real tan? or is this just like "washable"
I'm pretty sure that its like mild sunscreen that still allows u to get a tan
You will get a real tan if you use it and then sunbath, it isn't like a fake spray-on tan.
Add some basil and garlic salt and you will drive the local cannibals crazy with the smell of cooked human flesh :)
