  • You can hop in the shower and do some really good exfoliating. That should get the majority of it off. I have never had luck with self-tanners. I do use the moisturizer that slowly tans you and it works great for me. Good Luck!

  • I decided to buy the "Airbrush tan in a can" that you spray on, and I thought I got it all, but when I woke up the next day and went to work, I looked down at my arm and it was orange and white in various places. I got home and the rest of my body was too! The only thing that worked was showering daily for a few days and it eventually came off.

  • I had a customer do this with the Banana Boat brand self tanner! She got it evened out with Moisture Effective Eye Makeup Remover Lotion by Avon.
    Next time try SKIN SO SOFT Satin Glow Continuous Mist Airbrush Spray I haven't had this problem with this product! Neither has she lol she switched after the incident! www.youravon.com/dhullum :) GL!

  • I've heard rubbing alcohol will work to get self tanner off the skin but be careful it can also dry your skin, maybe you could try Avon's Skin So soft, that stuff is supposed to help anything and everything!
