And then when we begin to scrub away fake – tan, you can often be left with patchy discoloration that makes you question your decision to apply in the first place.
It’s simple, ‘Love being tanned. Hate putting tan on. Love having tan on. Hate scrubbing tan off.’
But it doesn’t have to be chore to remove your tan!
