How to remove fake tan – The Sun | The Sun

GETTING naturally tanned in the UK can be a mission impossible, so many resort to fake tanning.

Unfortunately, this can end up being a disaster and that is why here we are going to show you how to remove a fake tan.

How to remove fake tan

There are several tricks that will help you to remove your fake tan.

Here we show you a few of them.

Baby Oil


Yes it turns out that baby oil serves more than just the one purpose.

Not only is it incredible at soothing sensitive skin but this magic liquid is also amazing at removing the most stubborn of fake tan disasters.

The best way to rid yourself of streaks?

Coat the area of fake tan in a layer of baby oil, get in your comfiest loungewear and wait for at least half hour so the oil can absorb into the skin properly.

The oil works to loosen the dead skin cells that have been dyed brown by the tan.

After this, run yourself a bath and exfoliate the moisturised area.

Not only will you be streak-free but left feeling as smooth as a… you know where we're going.

Lemon Juice

Besides from adding a citrus-y kick to your soft drink this summer, lemon juice also works wonders when removing old fake tan.

After all, you can always rely on lemon juice to basically bleach the area and remove the pigmentation.

You can either apply directly onto the skin or mix with a cup of sugar to double up as an exfoliator.

If lemon juice is tough enough to bleach your hair, it's certainly up to the job of sorting out some fan tan gone wrong.

Window cleaner

Supermodel Ashley Graham seems to think so.

Yes the plus-size campaigner revealed her very weird fake tan beauty hack on Instagram stories earlier this month.

Having suffered something of a fake tan disaster (because supermodels are human too, you know) Ashley looked no further than her trusty stash of window cleaner to sort the error of beauty ways.

And even though the harsh chemicals did a surprisingly good job of removing the orange streaks, there is no way anyone should be doing this at home.

After all those chemicals were meant for cleaning windows, NOT exfoliating legs.

Another safer method of fixing patches is by using another cabinet favourite – this time toothpaste.

Boots recommends using whitening toothpaste on any dark patches.

They said: "In the same way that toothpaste whitens teeth, it can also lighten fake-tan patches.

"Simply pop it onto any particularly unsightly patches, leave on for a minute and then wash off."

Removal products

There are plenty of products for sale with their sole purpose being the removal of fake tan.

Bondi Sands' Self Tan Eraser is incredible and removes your tan straight away, as does St Moriz's Advanced Pro Formula Tan Remover.
