Unhappy with your fake tan streaks and patches? Or do you want to remove your old fake to prep your skin for the next self-tanning sesh? Keep reading to know why and how to remove fake tan at home!
Why should you remove your fake tan?
While having a fake tan is an easy way to look sun-kissed, old fake tan also causes uneven skin tone and blotchy hands, elbows, knees, and ankles. And if you want to get your next self-tanning session, it is best to exfoliate your old tan first. This is to prevent having darker spots on some parts of your body.
How to remove fake tan?
Step 1: Warm bath or shower
Take at least five minutes to soak your skin in a warm shower or bath. This step is very important as the warm water softens and loosens up dead skin cells and dirt on the surface of your skin. No need to apply any soap, body oil, or lotion before or during this step because we want the skin to stay grippy for exfoliation.
Step 2: Exfoliate the skin
Believe it or not, you can remove your fake tan in just a few minutes! Exfoliation with the CheekyGlo Body Glove is key in removing your stubborn fake tan!
Once your skin is already soaked in warm water, exfoliate your skin vigorously using upward and downward strokes until you see dead skin cells and fake tan roll away. Repeat for each desired area of your body. If you see that your skin gets red when you scrub, don't panic as this is normal. This means that you are stimulating healthy blood flow when you massage your skin. Just make sure that you control the pressure applied when scrubbing so you won't hurt your skin.
Step 3: Rinse
Now it is time to rinse all the dirt on your skin. Use a moisturising soap to clean your skin after exfoliating.
Step 4: Apply body oil
Make sure to apply the CheekyGlo Juicy Peach Body Oil after the shower to make the skin soft and hydrated. Not only does it make your skin feel smooth and smell delicious, but it also prevents wrinkling, reduces stretch marks, and speeds up skin regeneration!
