If it is summer, then I think that the best time to tan in Arizona would be mid-June or late June. By this time of year, you can expect 110+ degree days and high humidity. These conditions combined with sun exposure will cause your skin to burn! Avoid these conditions if possible by staying indoors for at least 30 minutes after every 2 hours of sunlight exposure (i.e., two breaks for every session). You should also wear clothing that covers as much body surface area as possible and use a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15 during daylight hours. If you find yourself outside too frequently in these hot conditions, make sure you remove your shirt when going from shade to direct sunlight–especially during midday periods when the sun’s rays are most intense.
How do I tan safely?
Take small breaks between applying the lotion and exposing yourself to UV radiation each time you apply lotion. In addition, don’t expose yourself more than 1 hour per day, try not to stay out under direct sunlight longer than 45 minutes without taking a break from UV exposure avoiding excessive sweating or heat stroke while being in the sun avoid overexposure by wearing long pants and long sleeve shirts instead of short shorts and tank tops drink plenty of water before going outdoors take frequent bathroom breaks apply enough lotions so they have an even texture all over your body slather on enough SPF so there isn’t any spot left uncovered lay down
