Some people tan more easily than others because they have a higher level of melanin in their skin. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its colour, and the more melanin you have, the darker your skin will be. This is why some people can stay in the sun for longer without getting sunburned, as they have a natural sunscreen. If you have hardly any melanin and you try to tan, you have to take it slowly, as otherwise it would be easy to get sunburned.
