I had a spray tan this afternoon. I carefully made sure I got all my deodorant, make up etc off. All looks good post tan only now I've developed a lovely green streak on one lower arm and across one thigh. The green streak is HUGE.

Wtf is going on? Is green going to wash off? Don't know what to do. Half tempted to jump in shower with Brillo pad and gin.

I do spray tans with fake bake and st tropez all week. Please don't panic. When you shower off in the morning the tan will be fine. Just sometimes the tan reacts with your skin ph. Don't touch it and all will be fine

Pheeeewwwww. Thanks so much mistake. So it's ok even when it's green? Just spotted that I also have a green lower bum cheek on left hand side!

just don't touch !!!!! Even as I am spraying sometimes it immediately goes green !! I hope you feel a bit more reassured x

I had Fake Bake done a couple of times, I'm already tanned but wanted to go a bit darker. When I looked in the mirror in the salon I was shocked enough as it was really, really, dark - but was even more surprised to find that my upper thighs had turned completely green on arriving home! But when I washed it off it was a lovely golden colour, so I'm sure it will be fine wink

If - and it is unlikely - it is still there after you've showered )or if you've got green patches in your armpits from deodorant), get some tomato ketchup, put it on some cotton wool and apply it to said green patches. It will lift it!
