But while waiting for your vacation to land on a deckchair, you can give yourself a little boost by using a self-tanner. This week, we explain how to remove it correctly to avoid traces and hassle!
How to remove your self-tanner!
Self-tanner can be your best friend, if applied correctly, or your worst nightmare, if unsightly welts and streaks appear on your skin. But don't panic, with the right tips, you'll make them disappear in a snap.
Applying your self-tanner correctly is an art. Even being very careful, we usually have traces on the legs, arms and orange hands. Fortunately, with the right techniques, you can correct the situation before going out.
Help, I have marks on my legs
A few minutes ago, you wanted to put your legs in the air, and there you have only one desire: to hide them? And for good reason, you had a bit of a heavy hand with the self-tanner... Know that you are not the only one, and that with coconut oil, you can make those horrible welts that piss you off disappear. .
To achieve this, it is very simple. All you need to do is apply a generous dose of coconut oil to the area of your body that you consider too tanned. Leave the oil on for half an hour. Next, slip into a bath of warm water mixed with neutral pH soap. Mixing the two will remove streaks and excess self-tanner. Pat yourself dry with a towel. And you will find beautiful skin, as if nothing had happened!
Say goodbye to orange hands
Everyone who has used self-tanners has had orange hands at one time or another. It's almost inevitable. But good news ladies, we have two solutions to fix it, and to save your day!
1- The classic: make a scrub
If the spots are not very pronounced, you can do your usual scrub then moisturize your skin. In 75% of cases, traces should disappear, just after exfoliation.
2- Grandmother's remedy: nail polish remover
Despite the exfoliation, your hands remain orange? Rest assured, we have a plan B for you.
Rummage through your drawers and pull out your nail polish remover! You may not have suspected it, but no trace resists acetone. Take a cotton ball, soak it in nail polish remover and clean your hands with it.
But be sure to rinse them well afterwards. Acetone is a strong product, in order not to damage them, your hands must be thoroughly washed and hydrated afterwards.
Removing your self-tanner no longer holds any secrets. So, what are you waiting for to try it, and have a delicious tanned complexion?
