How to remove fake tan in 4 easy steps
1. Use a self-tan remover
Self-tan removers are new to the market, but since they launched, we have wondered how we ever survived without them. Years of mixing lemon juice with sugar, and wincing as it comes into contact with the skin are now over, and we couldn’t be more thankful.
Our favourite is the Bondi Sands Tan Eraser, which uses very unique technology to dissolve away streaky tans and orange crocodile skin. It works by exfoliating those pesky dead skin cells that the tan clings onto, and leaves you with an even base to reapply your favourite fake tan.
To use, apply the Self Tan Eraser all over the body. It comes out as a white foam that you just need to rub in, and we like to apply more around stubborn areas like the ankles and elbows. The formula only needs to be left on for a minimum of 5 minutes before rinsing away, but we like to give it 20, so that it washes away super easily.
