How to Remove Spray Tan – In 5 Minutes

Nobody wants to look like a human zebra. But that’s what happens to most people trying to get a natural-looking tan with a fake tan spray. A modern-day beauty disaster.

It’s a major disappointment when you slather on your fake tan spray only to wake up the next morning covered in streaks and smudges, looking like an orange cross walk.

And of course, no fake tan remover wipes in sight.

But worry not. As usual, your kitchen cabinets have all you need to make fast and effective fake tan removers – That works in 5 minutes.

How to Remove Spray Tan in 5 Minutes


Basically, you need to do 2 things: Lighten your skin and exfoliate your skin. Here are 3 bad fake tan removers that you can make right now:

1. Lemon Juice and Baking Soda

Freshly Squeezed lemon juice is well known for its skin-brightening effect. The acids in the lemon will gently remove some of the stains and streaks.

Baking soda is one of the best natural exfoliants ever. It’s not abrasive like sugar and salt, but works just as well.

Combine the two, and scrub-scrub-scrub. Leave on for a few more minutes and return to looking like a human again – In 5 minutes.

Note: This will not work with bottled lemon juice, only freshly squeezed.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

If you don’t have lemon in your house, you should. But if you don’t, do the same as instructed above with raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. It works just the same.

3. Hydrogen Peroxide and Coffee Grounds

Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) acts as a gentle and natural bleach on your skin. Just dab a cotton ball in the solution and rub all over the bad fake tan areas.

Leave it on for a few minutes and pat dry with a towel.

Like baking soda, coffee grounds are powerful (yet gentle) little exfoliaters.

Steep 3-4 tbsp of coffee grounds in hot water for about 15 minutes or until cool.

Add olive oil, or coconut oil, and mix well.

Apply on your skin and rub for at least 3 minutes. Wash it off (careful, it stains clothes) and say goodbye to the zebra in the mirror.

Don’t forget to moisturize after you finish, exfoliating the skin leaves it a bit dry.

What about you? Have you tried any of these fake tan removers? Any other suggestions?
