    Hi friend
    first of all find out which part of ur body is affected then follow he following steps to cure them...........If the problem is on your skin, remember that most fake tans fade of their own accord after a few days so resist the urge to scrub your skin raw now – you will do far more damage to yourself than a few day’s embarrassment being a funny colour! In fact, the gentlest and kindest way to deal with it is to allow your outermost layer of ‘tanned skin’ to slough off naturally. Cover up with appropriate clothing and try to counter any comments or curious looks with as sense of humour and maybe even a wry admission. Most people will be sympathetic – many will have probably been there themselves! – and they will appreciate your honesty.

    With regards to fake tan stains on clothing, prevention is really better than cure. Most tanning products will advise you of a time period to wait before getting dressed but you should always wait a minimum of at least 15 minutes after application before putting your clothes back on. To be on the safe side, it is also best to get dressed in old clothes – rather than that beautiful, new, pristine white summer frock! Also make sure that you are not standing, sitting or leaning on any fabrics, such as cream carpets, white bed sheets or delicate upholstery – for a period of time after application.
    If it Must Come Off…
    Obviously, there may be situations where you simply cannot afford to wait and let nature takes its course – for example, if you have a wedding or important job interview to attend. So here are a few suggestions for different areas of the body:

    Face and Neck
    First, remember that fake tan is least effective on the face and within 24 hours, the tan will have already toned down in colour so if at all possible, try to leave it alone and counter with some judicious use of make-up. If you are desperate, try massaging baking soda into your damp skin (e.g. in the shower), using small, gentle circles. This has an exfoliating action which will remove any dead skin that is ready to be sloughed off. This treatment will help greatly with any “blotchiness” that comes from fake tanning products. If the colour is even but simply unnatural, moisten a cotton pad with alcohol-free toner or a liquid make-up remover and wipe it gently over your face and neck. Alternatively, find a product containing Apha- or Beta-Hydroxy Acid solution and apply before bedtime – you should see an improvement in the morning.

    Hands and Feet
    For orange palms and soles, body hair bleach can be very effective. Apply to the stained areas, leave for about 10 minutes and then rinse off thoroughly. If other, more sensitive, areas are stained such as wrists, knees and ankles, try the Apha- or Beta-Hydroxy Acid solution. Ordinary hydrogen peroxide (such as from your First Aid kit) can also work, although make sure that it is no older than 6 months old because otherwise, it will be ineffective. While it may not work immediately, it should help to lighten the tan more quickly if you keep applying it daily to restricted areas.

    Note that hydrogen peroxide is a very powerful chemical and can harm the skin through free radical damage – therefore, it should NEVER be applied to large areas of the body. Remember to always test a small area of skin first when using any chemical as they can cause severe irritation. In addition, never use different products at the same time (eg. hydrogen peroxide and body hair bleach) on the same area of skin.

    Fingernails and Toenails
    Again, body hair bleach can work well on stained toenails and cuticles. For fingernails, try soaking them in a bowl of denture cleaner.

    An area that often has to endure constant shaving and deodorising, it is no surprise that the skin around the underarms can look strange and absorb fake tans badly, causing a ring to form around the underarm. It is best to gently exfoliate the area using a scrubbing cloth.

    Knees and Elbows
    Again, exfoliation with a scrubbing cloth is a good solution and you can do it quite vigorously with something like a sisal scrubbing cloth. However, never rub your skin red.

    Torso, Legs and Arms
    These parts of the body need more gentle treatment so it is best to coat yourself in baby oil, followed by a long bath during which you can exfoliate very gently with a cotton washcloth. Daily soaking in a bathtub will also help reduce all-over “orangeness”. Swimming will also help to tone down the colour.

    Remember to keep your skin moisturised at all times and to always be as gentle as possible. Raw, red skin is no more attractive than orange skin!
    good day bye..............

    Hi gags,

    Feel confident about your looks. Don't worry whether your skin in tanned for not. I am writing down few tips for you anyway.

    • Gentle skin peels can get rid of tanned skin. Choose the right peel system that gently exfoliates your skin and stimulates regeneration.

    • Apply the mixture of raw turmeric and cream of milk on the face and wash it after 20 minutes. It will make your skin fair.

    • Make a mixture of 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice and glycerin and apply it on the darkspots to get rid of them

    Face and Neck:---

    1)Look at the color. If it has an orange look, moisten cotton pads with liquid makeup remover and wipe your neck and face with it.

    2)Get rid of blotches, if that is what the problem is, by slightly making your face damp, Sprinkling dry baking soda, directly from the box and into your hands. Massage the area in a circular fashion very gently until the area looks even. One scrub should do it, but if it still looks bad, try it once again.

    3)Do this treatment before going to bed, and by morning your skin should look evenly tanned.

    Hands and Feet:---

    1)Look at your palms of your hands and your feet. If they have too much color on them, or look orange just try body bleach on them.

    2)Use the same body hair bleach that you would use on your upper lip, mix and apply to the over tanned area. Allow it to stay for ten minutes, and wash off.

    3)Use a product that you should keep in your home for emergency cuts, hydrogen peroxide. Wipe it on that area, but test it first on a very small area to make sure you do not irritate your skin.

    4)Have patience in this area as it might take a few days of treatment to completely get it down from that orange look to a more bearable tone.

    Legs and arms:---

    1)Know that this part of the body, including the torso, needs a gentle treatment.
    Put baby oil all over this area, wait 1/2 hours and take a bath, using a soft washcloth to exfoliate the rest of your body.

    2)Make sure you are very gently massaging the rest of your body. Gently massage means just that.

    Complete Orange Body:---

    1)Take a bath and just soak and relax. One long bath might just remove enough of the orange shade to make you happy.

    2)Go swimming if you have a pool instead of the bath. Both will do the same thing because only the outer part of the skin has become overly tanned.

    i saw these good tips here!
    Should use scrubs to remove the dry scaly skin.
    Apply ½ tsp of Vitamin E oil with 2-3 drops of lime juice and ½ tsp of glycerin.
    Apply a mixture of 1 tsp warm Olive oil with a few drops of glycerin and 2-3 drops of lime juice.
    1 tsp of milk cream with2-3 drops of lime juice mixed well. This should be applied 10 minutes before a bath. It reduces the dryness and also is good when applied in Winter.
    Plain, whole milk, applied and left on for 10 minutes and washed with cold water helps.

    Outside of using bleach and scrubbing heck out of it.....I have used a buffing block(like for finger nails) in the shower and buffed it off. Be careful though, or you will make your skin raw. Make sure to moisturize well! Otherwise, it just has to fade/ware off.

    I suggest that you use a good moisturizer/body lotion on a regular basis and this will help heal your skin and get rid of the tan. Make sure to apply it on a regular basis so that you can protect your skin from getting burnt by the sun and other elements that you may face on a regular day. I would recommend you use the parachute body lotion.. It has worked really well for me.

    Sunburn often causes problem to the skin texture. Even though you are naturally fair but then few times exposure in the scorching heat of Delhi summer could naturally give a tan imprint over your body. But then there are few good stores in Delhi where you can get special facial kits for tan removal. You can contact Kasiraja Herbal Garden Private Limited where you will get wide variety of natural products. This facial kit ranges form like Aloe Vera Face Scrub, Aloe Vera Face Pack, Aloe Vera Fairness Cream and others. You can also go for Gold Facial Kit which is very effective over sun tan skin. This product is available in Sattvik Organics store which is located in Vasant Kunj area.

    There are lot many companies in Delhi itself that helps you. As summer is very much horrifying to your skin, using this is advised. Your skin will thus have more youthful radiance. Undoubtedly, skin smoothness will come. Gags, even VLCC Anti tan kits are based on Ayurvedic recipes primarily. Moreover, VLCC, Delhi can be depended. So, never have any kind of doubt about this. Proveda Herbals Pvt. Ltd. manufactures facial kits that are very good. Company is at New Delhi’s East Patel Nagar
