To remove self tanner, make a paste out of lemon juice and baking soda, and use it to scrub your skin. Remove streaks from the hands with a cotton ball soaked in acetone nail polish remover. Moisturize the skin to make any remaining streaks less visible.Continue Reading
Cut several lemons in half, depending on how much surface area the tanner is on. Place a strainer over a bowl to catch seeds, and use a citrus juicer to squeeze out the lemon juice.
Place baking soda in a bowl, using more for larger surface areas. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and mix. Continue adding lemon juice in 1 tablespoon increments until you have a smooth but thick paste.
Scoop out the paste, and rub it onto the areas streaky with self tanner. Scrub lightly to remove the color, and let it sit for a couple minutes.
Use warm water to rinse off the paste, using a wash cloth to scrub slightly. If the streaks remain, repeat the application process.
Because the baking soda paste is not effective for the skin on your palms, use acetone nail polish remover. Soak a cotton ball in polish remover. Use it to swab away the streaks. Do not scrub as this irritates the skin.
Dry skin makes streaks more visible, and both removal procedures dry the skin. Slather a generous amount of a moisturizing lotion on your skin directly after removing the self tanner.
