Exposing unprotected skin to the UV rays can result in premature skin damage and even cancer. Safer alternatives for developing a tan include chemical applications that temporarily dye the skin a darker colour. Spray tans are just like any other type of dye in that they will stain your skin. If your hands have become stained as the result of a spray tan, you will likely be relieved to know that you have some options for removal.

Wash your hands and towel dry.
Apply a generous amount of baby oil to your hands. Allow it to remain for approximately one hour. If desired, wear a pair of latex gloves while you are waiting.
Apply a gel exfoliant to your hands. Scrub them with a loofah to exfoliate the skin.
Rinse and view the results. If needed, make a paste of lemon juice and baking soda and rub onto your skin with the loofah or a damp washcloth.
Rinse your hands. Apply a liberal amount of moisturising lotion to prevent dry hands.
