Are you wearing a helmet, or a hat with a rim?

nope. i usually go hat-less, or i'll wear the small crown. but when i go to the island i take off the hat. i never wear masks... i spent an hour on the island today which should have been more than enough compared to previous experiences and i TT'd to the next day like i always do to get the tan and i wasn't tan this time..

Any head stuff limits suntanning from what I learned. The halo for instance does that.

Not any head stuff. Only some head stuff.

i never wear hats on the island... i thought the island was in a perpetual summer which allows for year round tanning.. i don't get why its not working

This isn't confirmed at all, but I think TTing messes up your tan. I had been tan for weeks and just TTd a bit today to get a villager to move out and now I'm incredibly pale again.

I grabbed this from the FAQ about tanning. I'm not sure if it'll help:

Liquefy posted...
July 16 to September 15 - Tanning Season
Your player can tan while playing outside at least 15 minutes between 10am and
5pm, if it is not raining (and your player is not carrying an umbrella or
wearing an item that prevents tanning). There are seven stages to the
tanning, leading to a shade close to that of the darkest fur on [Tom Nook]
Tanukichi {Neogul}.


There's also a list of items that prevent tanning underneath that, but it's really long.
