Applied holiday skin last night, dried hair and forgot to scrub hands... yup nice orange bits inbetween my fingers this morning blush

Any tricks for getting rid?

Toothpaste works for me. Rub it into dry hands then rinse off - doesn't get it all off but fades it smile

Sea salt and olive oil - lots of scrubbing and soak in warm water.

cotton wool soaked in lemon juice does it for me.
