      Sorry – I don’t know of a way apart from a fake tan out of a bottle.

      I certainly wouldn’t recommend long exposure to sunlight because that increases the risk of skin cancer.

      In theory, you could perhaps do genetic engineering but that is a rather extreme strategy for a cosmetic result. Be happy the way you are. I am pale and nerdy and that’s fine by me! 😉

      I used to try to get a tan when I was younger, but now I just think tanning is too risky. My brother got burnt up as a teenager, and I worry it may affect his health when he’s older. Skin cancer can be very aggressive.
