Tea Beauty: Black Tea Self-Tanner

black tea self-tanner

Sunshine is more scarce during the wintertime, which can mean kissing your tan goodbye. If pale skin is getting you down this winter, ditch the damaging tanning booths and expensive spray tans. Instead, try this super quick, easy, inexpensive, and natural black tea self-tanner to bring back your tan!



  • 10 tea bags
  • 2 cups water
  • empty spray bottle


Bring the water to a boil and add the tea bags. Remove from heat and allow the tea to steep for at least 30 minutes. This is a very potent brew! Let the tea cool and transfer it to a clean spray bottle. Any spray bottle will work, but a spray bottle that produces a fine mist is ideal.

To use the self-tanner, first make sure your skin is clean, exfoliated, and completely dry. Spray the areas of your body that you wish to darken. Rub the tea in to avoid streaks and drips and wait for it to dry. Repeat these steps a few times for a naturally bronzed look until you are happy with the color.
