All you wanted was a summer glow, so you chose the perfect alternative to sunbathing – self-tanning. Unfortunately, instead of the perfect sun-kissed tan, you got orange elbows and knees, and self-tanning streaks. Get rid of those in just 5 easy steps!
Many women choose self-tanning over sunbathing in order to avoid the harmful rays of the summer sun.
However, instead of giving you a gorgeous bronzed tan, self-tanning often leaves you with ugly streaks, orange knees, elbows and hands, and makes you regret the day you decided to use it.
If you are currently going through a self-tanning mishap, here’s something that might help you – a step-by-step explanation of the streak-removing process.
Water is your best friend in dealing with these types of problems. Take a long warm bath and gently exfoliate your skin using a washcloth. This will help the natural skin renewal, and you will get rid of the streaked skin more easily.
Baking soda is a wonderful stain remover – no worries, it will do no harm to your skin if you apply it gently, but you should avoid applying it to your face, especially if you have sensitive skin. Use a washcloth to rub some moistened baking soda on the streaked parts of your skin.
Use a cotton ball to apply rubbing alcohol on your self-tanning streaks. Be careful if you have dry skin – alcohol is very drying, so make sure you moisturize well after applying it.
Lemon might be of great help when you’re trying to get rid of self-tanning streaks. Use a fresh lemon wedge and swipe it across the streaks. The citric acid found in lemon and lime helps exfoliation and bleaching.
This is usually a good, efficient way to remove self-tanner. You can use it to remove streaks, orange marks and stains, or even the entire tan.
