If you have purchased tanning cream and are traumatized due to the now orange color of your skin it is possible to get rid of it before you have to make an unsightly public appearance.
If you have just done the tan, using some makeup remover may help you remove the tanner so that your orange skin goes back to normal.
If this doesn’t work you may have to move on to a few harsher chemicals, especially on your hands and feet. As these areas tend to collect more tanning lotion.
If you have hydrogen peroxide around your house, use this on a cotton ball to wipe away the orange. Always test a small patch of skin first though, as it can be irritating to some people.
Finally you can give body hair bleach a try. This is the kind you use to bleach hair on your upper lip. Put it on the skin for 10 minutes then rinse it off.
Good luck, and you may have to try these treatments more than once. Orange can be very stubborn on your skin.
