How To Fix Self-Tanner Mistakes
By Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director |
Like many women, you might rely on self-tanner to get you through the long winter months. But when things go wrong and suddenly you’re oompa loompa orange, you need a quick and easy fix. We have two words for you: Bronze Buffer.
Paige Axel, creator of Bronze Buffer (a mighty little reusable sponge and the only one on the market that works to remove self-tanner after the color has developed), gives us her tips on how to use it.
Use It In The Shower:
Wet the sponge and then squeeze out the excess water. “Since you’re already naked and there’s plenty of water, you can touch up any uneven color, refine common problem spots like your elbows and knees, or tone down areas where you applied too much tanner. We don’t recommend that you use it on your face or neck. I personally think using a gradual self-tanner might be better on these areas to avoid a mishap.” And you don’t have to scrub with these, just gently wipe away streaks.
Embrace The Shape:
“The sponge’s ‘points’ are ideal for small spots like between your fingers (if you forget to wear a mitt) and toes, or small mistakes that require precise removal so good color stays intact.”
Prep For Your Next Tan:
Axel also advises using the buffer when prepping your skin for your next tan. “If you are a habitual self-tanner (or spray-tanner), use the buffer before your next tan to help get rid of any splotches or spotty color (which is common when a faux tan fades).”
