Top Tips For Removing Self Tan

If you’re ready to get rid of your spray tan, a few DIY tips and tricks can make the process extremely easy on you. If you’ve recently tanned with a product such as MineTan Gradual Tan or Express Tan, removing it doesn’t have to be a hassle.

The MineTan brand’s Bronze Off Exfoliating Mitt can do wonders for making your faux tan a thing of the past. This convenient mitt sloughs off dead and dull skin cells and therefore replenishes the typical look of your complexion. Not only do these 100 percent natural fibre mitts do away with old skin, but they also do away with remnants of spray tan. You can use the mitt completely dry or with water.

If you don’t have the Bronze Off Exfoliating Mitt, there are thankfully various other convenient ways in which to remove your spray tan. Baby oil is just one such example. Cover your tanned skin with the oil. Be sure to massage it deep down. Then, let the baby oil remain on your skin for anywhere between 30 minutes and 40 minutes or so. Take a bath once the time is up. Scrub away any extra tan that may be lingering using an exfoliating product. Don’t forget that successful spray tan removal is all about extracting dead skin cells. Since baby oil makes these cells smoother and softer, it makes it markedly simpler for them to just fall off. If you don’t have baby oil, you can substitute it with any basic body oil you have available.

Lemon juice can also work like a charm for self tan removal. Since lemon is a citrus fruit, it’s acidic and has the ability to quickly eliminate self tans. Simply blend fresh lemon juice with some raw sugar to easily and swiftly exfoliate your skin. Not only is this self tan removal process speedy and simple, but it’s also extremely budget-friendly. Who says tan removal has to cost a lot of money, anyway?

Baking soda is yet another convenient and inexpensive DIY option for self tan removal. Blend some water and baking soda together to make a dense paste. Put the paste on your skin and let it sit for anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes. Then scrub the paste off. Voila! Your faux tan should be out of sight, out of mind.

If you don’t want to use anything you already have in your kitchen to remove your self tan, stores have many effective options in products that are specifically designed to do away with unwanted tans. Not only can these products be great for getting rid of fake tans entirely, but they can also be great for minimising the appearance of somewhat faded areas.
