Step 1: Prepare Your Skin In Advance

Before you begin, it's important to make sure your skin is pre-prepped for the removal process. A gentle exfoliation before applying your sunless tanner will help loosen dead skin cells and prepare your hands for a thorough cleanup. Exfoliation will leave your skin looking brighter and ready to better absorb your sunless tan. We suggest Fake Bake’s Coconut Oil Exfoliating Wipes that both exfoliate and moisturize your skin.

Step 2: Use Cleaners With Gentle Ingredients

Using harsh, abrasive ingredients is a surefire way to strip your skin of its natural oils and moisture, so it's important to use gentle solutions when removing self-tanner from your hands. We recommend products such as baby oil or olive oil, which help break down the tanning agent without damaging your skin.

Step 3: Rinse Thoroughly with Water and Soap

Once you've applied the oil to your hands, rinse with water and soap, as this will help further break down the tanning agent and get it off your skin. Afterward, use a washcloth to further, gently exfoliate your hands until all of the residue is removed.

Step 4: Moisturize Your Skin After Self-Tanning

Finally, once you've successfully removed the self-tanner it's important to moisturize your hands to maintain their healthy glow. We recommend applying a layer of hand cream or lotion for your skin to absorb plenty of hydration and remain soft and smooth.

With these easy steps, you'll be sure to get that excess self-tanner off your hands in no time and with no trouble. Remember to use gentle ingredients, exfoliate and moisturize your skin for the best results. Have fun and enjoy your beautiful, glowing skin!
