Whats the best way to prepare for tanning?

Hi, Does anyone have any tips on getting a better tan before i go on holiday?
I read something about a year ago that taking Beta-Carrotene or somethin like that and vitamin E two weeks before and while on hols helps promote a healthy tan. Has anyone tried this or have any better info?

Thanks in advance, Chris

    everyone keeps asking where I've been on holiday, only had a few sunbeds - LOL

    They are a good idea, apparently they do not build resistance to sun, but I disagree. I burn easily and since using sunbeds have gone out topless and hardly burnt at all
