How do redheads tan?
I am a redhead, and with my fair skin, I burn very easily, but I do not tan until I have been burned repeatedly many times (such as after a trip too the beach). Even then, it is not a drastic difference. Redheads do get freckles on their face and shoulders from the sun exposure, though.

You sit in the sun for about 2-3-4 hours. No! Do not sit in the sun for that long. You could get dehydrated and get sun poisioning! Use tanning lotion is the way i find …most easiest OR go to a tanning bed. Agreed, don't sit in the sun for that long- though is there even such a thing as sun poisoning?. Personally I prefer pale skin, but each to their own. If you can get a tan, sit in the sun for a little while, but drink enough water and wear sunscreen . A lot of people think this stops you from getting a tan, but it doesn't; it helps protect your skin while you get a tan. If you find getting a tan hard, you might have to get a fake tan. A tanning bed will not help if you can't get a tan normally, it will only further damage your skin.
There are many ways that you can get tan. One of the most popular is the sun. It is free, and it is nice to bask in the sun. The sun may be free, but too much exposure can cau…se skin cancer and will be costly to you later on. A different way to get tan is to go to a store and buy a tanning lotion. Results are between instant, or may take up to a week to have a nice tan. This is also inexpensive, and it will not cost you your skin in the future. Some may even be "firming". The most expensive way to get an instant tan is through a salon. The results are very nice and they have techniques to make your stomach seem leaner, your butt firmer, and your thighs thinner. The cost usually is about 80-100 dollars. It may cost more in some places. Make sure to research! what makes you tan is melon that works hard in your skin and gets a darker color.
Yes, it is possible. Whether a redhead can get a tan or not depends very heavily on genetics.
Being outside in the sun is helpful. Even if you don't have time to lay out just being outside does a fair bit. Revealing clothing helps make it even throughout your body, a b…athing suit would be good or if you have a private place, completely naked is best. Depending on your skin type it can be hard, but to prevent burning put on some sunblock, especially if you're pale. They also make lotion products that are supposed to help you tan faster. Rubbing water on yourself helps because the water drops magnify the suns rays. There are also tanning beds, which you either buy or go to a salon to use. Or there is spray, but they tend to look fake.

Tans darken your skin and give you vitamin e, if you are suggesting to the sun. But if you are talking about artificial tans, then they wrinkle your skin, when you grow older.…
Because they have red hair its not like they have a bright red head LOL
Names in Vietam: Tan An, Long Tan, etc.
tan in a bed with UVA rays, it will take a little longer for the color to build but eventually you will see results.

People get tanned because when the sun is beaming on you for a long time your skin gets burned but not to extreme measures then after awhile it peels :D
no they cant get a tan cuz they are just going to get burnt and start to peel and all that Close but no prize. redheads ARE able to get a tan but it is very rare. The gene f…or red hair, which is a MC1R variant is located close to the gene for skin color. Most redheads cannot get a tan because in freckled redheads, the melanin is contained only in the freckles, not spread out uniformly as is the case for most people. Therefore, the freckles can tan (i.e. get darker) but there is usually no melanin in between the freckles. In rare cases, there are redheads with very little freckling and olive or darker skin. This is usually seen in non Celtic, Semitic (as in Jews, mostly Ashkenazi, as well as Arabs) or Iranian descent. There is a very, very tiny amount of these darker skinned redheads in Asian populations. I'm not sure. I'm a redhead and i can tan just fine and haven't had a sunburn for 9 or 10 years. Sure its uncommon and i probably spend more time outside than other redheads but i tan fine in the summer and lose it a bit during the winter just like everyone else
You are most likely, naturally dark, and it's in the pigmentation in your skin, that causes you to absorb the sun.
Tanning temporarily darkens the pigment in your skin. Thus giving you darker skin.
