Tanned have you?! Want to know the best way to remove the tan?? PROTECT YOURSELF FROM FURTHER TANNING! Yes, the tan is anyway bound to disappear in 40 days because that's about the time required for the damaged tanned skin cells to shed off on their own! The more you actively try to intervene to remove the tan the more you end up hurting the upper layer of the skin making the skin go dry! So use a good sunscreen or wear full sleeved clothes or go chic with a fancy umbrella!!
