@NurseMandie:  Try those fake tan remover packets… I think Sephora sells them.

You could also try some combination of lemon juice and a hand scrub and/or baking soda. Try googling home remedies to remove fake tan and you’re bound to come up with something that works.

Next time I’d probably just apply more lotion, or even something heavier like Vaseline.

@NurseMandie:  I’m told nail varnish remover also helps.  The tanning corrector wipes are great too but usually have to be used within a certain amount of hours – they work though and exfoliate the areas (not too hard though)

@NurseMandie:  It’s been awhile since I’ve spray tanned (and gotten splotchiness) but I could have sworn I used rubbing alcohol to even it out. I much prefer getting sprayed by someone rather than a machine. I haven’t had any problems with human application.

Definitely use more lotion next time. You want to still be able to see some of the white of the lotion after you put it on, so slather away!

@NurseMandie:  This happened to me my wedding weeek! I was desperate to get it off, so I did a lot of research. I found the solution to be soaking in a tub with about half a bottle of baby oil in the water. Then I took a loofah towel and scrubbed A LOT. The baby oil does something to loosen up the color. Just be careful beause your tub is going to be slippery for a few weeks! Good luck!

Lemon juice mix it with sugar and rub your palms together. The lemon juice is very acidic so it actually helps to remove the top layer of skin the sugar will help exfoliate.
