Bloody hell, I put some gradual tan on my face last night and washed my hands but obviously not thoroughly enough. wine may have been involved
Please wise Mumsnetters how do I get normal coloured hands again?

Cover your hands in oil (any oil) and leave for 20 mins, then add more oil, pour some salt into one palm and rub it into the oil on both hands. Then soak in soapy water. Then any stubborn bits should come off with a pumice stone

Do you have any hand sanitizer? That'll take it straight off, but be careful it doesn't get onto anywhere you want the fake tan to stay obviously!!

Also try shaving foam if you have any, works wonders !
