While most women who maintain a varied collection of skin care products know all there is to know about correctly applying self-tanning lotion, not all are equally aware of methods to use when the fake-bake goes awry.
Fortunately, there is a way to backtrack once the stuff has soaked in. According to Glamour.com, you can use something as basic as baby oil to help remove some of the excess coloration. If that doesn't work, "exfoliate to slough off the dead skin cells that color pigments tend to cling to or gently scrub skin with a washcloth dipped in milk," the news source suggests.
Better yet, you can take steps now to avoid such blunders in the future. Do some research and pick up a high-quality self-tanning product such as Elemis Bronze Boost Duo. The dual-action formulas help add a hint of natural-looking color to the skin before hitting the great outdoors as well as maintaining and protecting it while receiving an assist from the sun.
