Like real life, getting a tan is not quick, although it does happen faster in the game than in real life.

To get a tan, you need to be outside on a warm, sunny day. Tans are easier to get in the summer. There cannot be clouds. You can do this in your town, but going to Tortimer Island guarantees the correct conditions for getting a tan. You can run around fishing, planting, and swimming if you like, or you can leave the game on and the 3DS open (not in sleep mode). It will take a few hours of being in the sun for a tan to appear. It may take multiple days to get to the darkest color. The tan will NOT appear until the next day.

You can go to the island and use the wetsuit, and stay in the water and put down the 3ds (charging is a good idea) for an hour and a half (or more) and repeat for 7 days (if you have that kind of money, if not- stay for longer for less days) (: or more if you want a darker color. ALSO! Take off all headgear socks and accessories! (knowledge from )

You need to stand outside in the sun at the island or in town when it's Summer for a few hours. You can't get to the darkest stage of a tan in 1 day, it takes several days to reach that stage of tan.

How to get a tan takes quite some time. You need to stay in the sun for a while. If you have the outdoor chair built, (Public Work Projects) you can make it. If u lay/sit on it in the sun u maybe possibly get a tan. But the next day the tan will show.

Ok really the quickest way is to go to the island stand in the sun with no hats and no long sleeved shirts for 15 minutes and Ull get the tan the next day
