How do I remove fake tan?

We all love fake tan when it looks flawless however, I am yet to find a fake tan that is perfect every time. Tan wears off, streaks, blotches appear on knees and elbows, you name it, all fellow fake tanners have seen it. The good news is, it's not permanent and there are many ways to remove fake tan.

1. Lemons

If you have a few areas of fake tan imperfection a simple lemon can help. Just cut open the lemon and apply to your fake tan problem area. Leave it for a couple of minutes, then wipe away with a damp cloth or towel. It is best to use this method at night. Lemons can cause skin irritation and discolouration when exposed to sunlight.

2. Jump in the local spa or swimming pool

Chlorine is known as a tan-fader. Head down to your local pool or find a friend with a spa and jump in. This is an enjoyable and easy way to let fake tan fade.

3. Sweat it out

Sweating is a great way to soften the skin and help remove fake tan. Get out and get your sweat on. You could try a work out or enjoy a relaxing sauna.

4. Baking soda and coconut oil

Baking soda is a miracle product for many household chores but it can also work wonders on unwanted fake tan. Simply mix together baking soda with coconut oil to create a paste, then slather onto the targeted area and roughly wait an hour to allow it to work. Rinse off thoroughly before giving self tanner another try. If you leave coconut oil residue on the skin your fake tan may go on patchy.

5. Brac. Turkish Silk Exfoliating Glove - Full tan removal

We know, it's very tempting to start to layer fake tan over the fading old one. However, to get the glowing natural look and feel it is important to apply your fake tan to a smooth surface. Even the best fake tan will start to dry out the skin after a few days so for the best results its best to totally remove your tan before you reapply your next coat. For total tan removal, nothing beats the brac. Turkish Silk Exfoliating Glove.

How to use your brac. exfoliating glove in the bath:

Step out of the bath and put on your brac. Turkish Silk Exfoliating Glove. Starting with your feet, move the glove in a smooth but firm up-down motion.  You should be able to see the top layer of skin gently start to peel and rise to the surface.  As you move around your body, be gentle on sensitive areas and the face. 

Once you have completed your entire body, jump back into the bath and wash off the dead skin. Repeat the exfoliation process if you miss any areas.
