Ready to remove your fake tan asap? We've got you sorted with these easy and effective tips.
Sometimes in life, our self tan can end up looking more like Princess Fiona than Gigi Hadid and we need to find a solution to remove it fast. It really does happen to the best of us. Whether you’ve used a bottle of tan that expired 2 years ago, didn't use a Tanning Mitt when applying or are just trying to remove that 5 day old patchiness before your date on Friday, you’ve come to the right place. Here are the best ways to remove fake tan fast.
1. Use a Fake Tan Remover
The easiest and quickest way to remove stubborn tan is by investing in a good remover. The Bali Body Self Tan Remover is an incredibly effective foaming solution that lifts unwanted tan from the skin in just 5 minutes. As one of our most innovative and requested products yet, it was developed to provide a gentle way to remove tan that would suit even the most sensitive skin types. While ensuring the product was effective, we included a range of hydrating and nourishing ingredients for optimal hydration including aloe vera, jojoba seed oil and cucumber extract.
2. Exfoliate the skin
Whether you use an Exfoliating Mitt or a body scrub, constant and thorough exfoliation is key to removing any tan or product build up. Exfoliation is also the ideal follow up to using the Bali Body Self Tan Remover as the remover breaks down any unwanted product, making it easier to scrub without having to go too hard and irritate your skin.
3. Have a hot shower or bath
While this won’t completely rid your skin of tan, hot water and steam will certainly help. The heat and humidity will work to soften the tan further. Step out and rub your skin gently with a wet towel in circular motions to loosen the tan and deeply exfoliate.
4. Apply Body Oil
This will work similarly to having a hot shower, as it helps to loosen the dry skin cells that have absorbed too much colour. Soak your skin in body oil - baby oil, coconut oil or even olive oil will do the trick - and let it soak in for at least 30 minutes before hopping into the shower with your Exfoliating Mitt. Unfortunately your old tan won’t disappear like magic but it will help get the process started while your Bali Body Self Tan Remover is on route.
Each one of these techniques is about ensuring your skin is hydrated because dry skin and fake tan aren't friends at any stage of the tanning process. Keep your skin hydrated throughout the life of your self tan with our Luxe Moisturising Lotion for longer lasting results.
