Question Outdoor Tanning - Baby Oil w/ Iodine or Water and Vinager?

I heard that you can get a good tan outdoors by using a mixture of baby oil and iodine...
Ive also heard that water and vinager (sp) works good.

Anyone here tried any of these....or maybe have a home mixture of your own that works?

Im looking to get a good tan and hoping to get looks of ideas that will help.

I only tried baby oil and I burnt! Red as a lobster so I wouldn't recommend that. I use Banana Boat dark tanning oil and I tan good with that one.

ScoobyDoo - at the risk of sounding like a *preacher*, I'm going to say again that it is VERY damaging to your skin to go into the sun without a sunscreen. You may not notice it for years, but by then, the damage is done.

If you absolutely must go into the sun, then I would at the very least use a sunscreen that has a 15 SPF - and be sure that it screens UVA & UVB rays - one cause burning the other causes aging. You will still get some color, but at least you'll have some proetection, too.
