To tan safely outdoors, there are a few factors to be aware of. One is the ability to control your tan better through the use of proper sunscreen. It comes down to selecting the right amount of SPF, applying liberally and reapplying as recommended.
Another factor is being aware of how often you are out in the sun. Sometimes people forget when they are not tanning but simply out walking around, they still are under UV rays. You may still need some sunscreen depending on your skin type.
In general, outdoor tanning can be safe. People have been doing it for years and it is beneficial. The sun gives us the vitamin D we need to improve bones, muscles and nerves. By tanning safely with the proper sunscreen, you may still tan but without sunburns. You will still get vitamin D as well.
