Tanning is the act of a character becoming more brown through prolonged exposure to the sun from 10AM to 5PM from July to September 15th.

Preventing and removing

Tans can be prevented and removed by avoiding the sun. This can be done by playing during the night, during rainy or cloudy days, or by wearing a hat or umbrella.

Tans can be removed by simply waiting a while.
