Disclaimer: There’s no safe way to tan (and especially not to burn). Dermatologist Lisa Chipps made this abundantly clear when asked how to fade a sunburn into an even tan: “Don’t tan,” she responded. “Every time you tan, you increase your risk of developing skin cancer, brown spots and wrinkles.” That said, if you forget to take preventative measures against the sun’s harmful rays — it happens! — these simple tips will help the resulting burn fade into something resembling a tan, rather than shedding all over your bed sheets.
