    It takes a couple of times to start noticing, I would go out in the sun at noon and be in it for about an hour using suntan lotion. Just don't over do it or use spf30 to prevent sunburn.

    1st and foremost put on some sunblock with an SPF of at least 30. Sit down on the deck chair and rotate every half hour for about a good hour. you should see some noticeable tan lines by then.
