Best Sunless Tanning Lotion From Your Kitchen

Wonder how you can get the best sunless tanning lotion from your kitchen? You make it! Here's a recipe of homemade self tanning concoctions that doesn't just possibly give you a perfect tan, but it's safe. Just remember that this homemade recipes does not contain sun screen and is a FAKE TAN, so always protect your skin prior sun exposure by using a sun screen with high SPF.
Tea for TAN!

Boil 1 cup of water in a small saucepan
Add 5 tea bags, the dark ones, definitely not green tea, we aim to have a bronzed sun-kissed skin and not a green alien-love-child look.
Let it boil for 30 seconds then remove it from the heat and let the tea sit in the water for a good 30 minutes
Then squeeze out the liquids from the tea bags before you remove them from the water.
All the ingredients have 1:1 ratio so lets make enough for a whole body lotion.
Measure 1/2 cup of the tea you prepared, 1/2 cup lanolin/petroleum jelly, 1/2 cup sesame oil. Mix all of these in a blender and blend them at low speed for 3 minutes.
If the lotion is too thick, you can thin it by adding more tea mixture.
Apply to skin in circular motion working in small areas at a time.
Apply regularly for deeper tan results.
