If your fake tan with a self tanner has turned out less than perfect, getting rid of it altogether with a self-tan remover or other methods might seem like a good idea. However Dr Schultz has a better suggestion. He doesn't quite advocate the use of physical exfoliants such as scrubs or microdermabrasion to rectify it as they are more difficult to use evenly. He says that whether your tan has become streaky, uneven or just too dark, daily exfoliation with a chemical exfoliant (glycolic is best) will do the trick. And if you are already using a chemical exfoliant regularly, he suggests that for a few days you should consider using it twice a day or using a stronger strength formula once daily. However, a better option is to get it fixed at the doctor's office.
