If despite your best efforts, your self tanner results in a streaky tan, no reason to panic. A streaky tan can be fixed. Here’s how:
- Soak a cotton ball or pad in undiluted lemon juice.
- Wipe the soaked cotton pad over the streaky areas. The citric acid in lemon juice helps to smooth away unevenly applied tanner by sloughing off skin cells that have been overly tanned.
- Lemon juice doesn’t do it for you? Consider massaging plain baking soda over damp skin with small, gentle, circular motions. The light abrasive action of baking soda will help to slough away overly tanned skin cells, leaving a more evenly toned look.
