Go (Un)Streaking With These Self-Tanner Removal Tips

So, you've had an unfortunate encounter with a self-tanner. Even though you followed the directions carefully, you ended up looking less sex kitten, more striped kitty. Have no fear, we're going (un)streaking. For tips on how to make the patchwork look a little less obvious, just keep reading.

  • Think fast: The faster you see the streaks developing, the easier they'll be to remove. Consider using a fast-developing self-tanner so you can see the "oops moments" as they unfold, or use a gradual tanner, like St. Tropez Tan Remover (£8.50) for your palms or ModelCo Tan Remover Exfoliating Scrub (£15).
  • Go suck a lemon: Not literally, of course. Applying lemon juice to those splotches is a natural way to help exfoliate. Use a cotton wool pad to apply, and scrub away.
  • Hit the bottle: Of rubbing alcohol. Dunk a cotton pad in rubbing alcohol and apply to the spotty areas. This method can be somewhat drying, though, so be sure to moisturise after.
