Because self-tan can be stubborn to remove
So you busted out the self-tan and looked like a Gisele-esque bronzed goddess for a week. Then a moisture-sucking combo of aircon, sun, sea and pool water stepped in and caused an assortment of patchy streaks to ruin the even finish of your tan. Until recently there were only two options for removing the old remnants of self-tan: exfoliate the evidence away in the shower with a tough washcloth. The second was to turn your bathroom into an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation by mixing lemon juice with baking soda and gingerly massaging the concoction onto leftover tanned patches. But one thing’s for sure: the whole shebang is likely to be the biggest deterent for ever trying self-tan again. Thankfully that’s all about to change with Bondi Sands new Self Tan Eraser.
Need a bronzer to go with that perfect tan? Powder can pair you up with the perfect bronzer – take the quiz here.
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), the active ingredient in self-tans that produces the brown colour change, also makes skin more acidic. This easy-to-apply foam works on your skin’s pH, turning it more alkaline in order to remove stubborn self-tan patches in just 5 minutes without the need for harsh scrubbing. And as the Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser is non-abrasive and chock-full of aloe vera, it’s gentle enough to use on both the face and body. Simply apply to dry skin at least three days after your self-tan and leave on for 5 minutes. Then use a wet face cloth (or an exfoliating mitt) in the shower to wipe away your old tan, leaving you free to reapply a fresh layer for sun-kissed skin that’s fishing for compliments. Pretty clever, right?
