Does anyone know of any good products to remove fake tan besides exfoliating? I know ModelCo has one.

Cover your body in an essential oil mix, leave on skin for 10 plus minutes, run a warm bath, soak for another 10 mins and then lightly exfolite with gloves. Gets majority off for me. The soaking in the bath softens skin cells and encourages exfoliation

A good chlorine spa /pool also does the trick!!

I have yet to find a fake tan remover than works anywhere as good as this…..actually i found they are just a gimmick really….

Like a massage oil mix or almond oil and olive oil work well too!

Try lemon juice, St Tropez Tan Remover or the hair dye stain remover that hairdressers use.
A soak in a hot spa will also get rid of fake tan quite effectively – except that I wanted to keep mine at the time!

I’ve never used any of the fake tan removal products – are they actually worthwhile?

The st. tropez tan remover has been especially formulated for the particular ingredients they use. This is very helpful for those who use st. tropez or napoleon. The reason why I recommend this product is that the ingredients in these tans can actually really discolour the skin if you use water. After I apply these tans if I were to use water alone my hands would go a greeny purple colour. This is also the case with the Napoleon tan enhancer. While it washes off like any other bronzing creme it can make the hands a nasty colour.

One thing might work for the modern products while it may not work on others that use older ingredients such as le tan, progressive tans, ambre solaire etc, and vice versa.

When I purchased the St. Tropez tan kit it came with everything I needed including the tan remover. I probably wouldn’t have purchased it alone at the time but it really works.

I know that lemon contains acids to remove fake tan, use it while in the shower with warm water and an exfliating glove,
Hope it works :D

1. Soaking in a bath, then scrubbing with exfoliater and a face washer or glove
2. Natural bristle dry brushes
3. Use with caution- Jiff can help remove stubborn stains- however I only ever use on my hands or feet and then throughly moisturise
4. If i have tan straks on my neck and chest I use the Clean and Clear toner on a cotton wool ball
5. Swimming, spas

all fake tans use DHA to tan the skin not just napoleon and st tropez.

Oh and also one thing to note is products like the ModelCo Tan Remover (which smells and looks divine) is pretty much just for use immediatley after you apply the tan, not after the tan has set and you have streaks. Basically they are just exfoliaters.

Sorry GlammaGirl, I believed the newer fake tans used different chemicals to the older tans eg. Le Tan

All fake tans use DHA (DIHYDROXYACETONE)

Its not a new concept. If anything, napoleon and st tropez etc are behind the times as there products dont use any natural ingredients in their formula and instead use cheap ingredients.

The new all natural / organic fake tans are the way to go as they hydrate and treat the skin without being too harsh and drying : )

Garnier Sugar Scrub, a warm bath and an exfoliating mitt should do the trick, I do this the night before I want to re-do my fake tan and it gets rid of the traces of my manky old one pretty easily. If I still have faint patches left, I just mitt and scrub again in the shower the following morning.

Lemon juice, a salt scrub and exfoliating gloves all work wonders! make sure you use a body lotion afterwards as this can really dry out your skin especially in winter.

You can get a lot of tan removal products, I think Modellista has one. If you have a look around priceline and/or ask the staff what range they have you should find plenty.
If you’re looking for a no-cost tan removal all I do is exfoliate with a scrub and loofa often until it fades. It doesnt take too long, doesnt cost anything. Make sure you heavily moisturize.

Being a Dad of two daughters, their mother and I watch with amusement the weekend warrior fake tan episodes. Quite by accident I applied a product to my daughter’s hands my company has developed for another industry & purpose. This occured because my daughter had asked for ‘windex’ for the removal of tan from her hands & I was horrified, even more so when told her girlfriends also use ‘jiff type’ products.
Our product took the tan off within 15 seconds and removed 12 hour old tan in less than 30 seconds- no scrubbing.
There is no alcohol, soap, stringents, ammonia, colouring, solvents. Non-toxic, non-allergenic and completely Environmentally Safe. There has now been incredible trials done by a fake tan manufacturer and we trust they may release it through their outlets by Spring / Summer 08. I trust we can put the dangers of caustic cleaners to rest.
