For various reasons, aesthetic or medical, sunless tanning removal might become necessary. Sometimes, the tanning process doesn’t go properly, resulting in an orange or uneven tan. Such unfortunate results can be reversed using simple methods, such as soaking with water.
How can water help? Only the outermost dead skin cells are colored in brown. Getting wet, the same cells act like sponges, becoming larger. Thus, the tanning removal process is easier. Sunless tan doesn’t last longer than a real sun tan, so consumers shouldn’t be too worried. Baking soda and a massage, rubbing in circles, can be helpful for removing the tan under the shower.
The place where the uneven tan is displayed determines how difficult its removal will be. Those who have already experienced it know that removing the tan from the palms of the hands or soles of the feet is more difficult than removing it from the neck zone.
Some manufacturers and tanning experts suggest using a purple or blue shade sunscreen, while keeping a moisturised skin. But these particular sunscreens do not include a full ultraviolet rays protection. Women are told to buy a bronze powder to hide or at least to attenuate the orange tint.
