Fake tan or skin tanning products give your pale skin a beautiful brown tinge that looks extremly beautiful. However, fake tan can sometimes be tough to get rid of, especially after using it for really long and not following the ideal skincare routine along with exfoliation. Here are some easy natural and simple ways to get rid of a fake tan:
Remove fake tan from body
EXFOLIATION – Exfoliation plays a very key role in getting rid of the upper dead skin layer where the tan usually settles. Tan is something that only affects the upper layer of the skin and is not deep within. By regularly exfoliating, you actually scrub off the upper skin layer and thus getting rid of the fake tan. Just make sure you exfoliate regularly since it is not a one-time job! You can use exfoliating gloves or make your own natural scrub.
Tips: You can make a paste with 1 tbsp of fine granulated sugar and 2 tbsp of olive oil and gently rub it over the skin, let it sit and do its work, then massage gently and wash with warm water.
WAXING – Waxing is a process wherein you apply wax on the skin and pull it off. This process also helps you get rid of the upper dead skin layer. This way it removes the tan and will make skin lighter.
MILK – Milk is a natural skin lighter that also is a de-tanner. It effectively helps you get rid of fake tan as well. First, you need to apply a thin layer of milk using a cotton ball and then wait for 3-4 minutes and let it dry. Once the first layer dries, apply the second layer and then wait for it to get dry. You can apply 4-5 layers of this mask so that your skin completely soaks the mixture. Keep it for 15 minutes and then wash off. READ MORE – 6 DIY BODY SCRUBS FOR HEALTHY AND GLOWING SKIN
