Lemon and whitening tooth paste
For the areas of your body which is looking light orange use some fresh lemon juice and leave it for couple of minutes. Usually this will get rid of almost all the self tanning lotion. Now for the darker part use some tooth paste and baking soda mixture, apply it evenly with a flat wooden spoon. Wait until the mix dries completely and then take a regular shower as you do.
