Follow these easy steps to remove an old stubborn tan. *Warning* we’ve been told these tips will leave your skin feeling baby smooth!

Have a Soak

When was the last time you spent some time in the tub?  Something as simple as taking your traditional bubble bath can be more than enough to remove your spray tan. In cases of a stubborn high performing solution, you may have to work on breaking the product down the tan beforehand in order for the tub to actually be effective.  

Pro Tip:

Lemon Juice and Windex are great to apply on a cotton ball when trying to remove a spray tan that has gotten on to your palms.

Baby Oil or Coconut Oil

Using a simple solution such as an oil or mineral oil before your bath session will speed spray tan removal process.

To remove a spray tan with oil:

  • Warm the oil in the palms of your hands
  • Apply to tanned area and wait at least 10 minutes
  • Exfoliate with a scrub
  • Rinse off

Partnered with an Exfoliant Scrub 

Spray tanning temporarily browns the top layer of your skin so the most efficient way to remove it is by scrubbing off the accumulated dead skin. We recommend trying out our oil free natural scrub. This scrub is formulated with high-quality sugar to clean pores and rid of any blemish-causing dirt or oils, exposing the newer epidermal layer. 

Have you used an Exfoliating Glove?

Using an exfoliating glove is pretty much the same as using an exfoliant scrub. You may consider purchasing an exfoliation glove if you plan on regularly tanning. These body sponges allow you to apply generous amounts of product while offering even more friction which allows for easier exfoliation.  Here’s how to use an exfoliating glove:

  • Get in the shower and wet your body.
  • Wet your exfoliating glove as well.
  • Rub off your tan with the glove.
  • Optional: Add soap to speed up the process.



Maintaining a spray tan requires minimal effort. A healthy routine of proper exfoliating, shaving, and time in the bath make all the difference in your results. Moisturize often – this will improve the total life of your tan. Island Toned appointments offer the best results when clients arrive with freshly prepared skin!
