if you used the barrier cream, and followed the usual I dont think it is you. Sounds like they have touched their face or body after. You can get wipes from boots or superdrug to remove the tan.

California Tan corrector is a good one and can be purchased from Superdrug.

Sounds to me like you have done everything right, barrier cream and tennis balls (people think I am mad when I ask them to hold tennis balls). Me thinks these ladies have been touching their face and bodies etc and trying to palm (no pun intended) their mistakes onto you.

You also said you had used sticky feet, so I can't understand why they have tan on their soles, unless you are spraying too wet and the solution is seeping through the sticky feet or around the edges, or even if you are not using sticky feet maybe the floor of your tent has solution on it?

I will be watching your thread with interest to see how you resolve this.

If I do get solution on me as I am a serial face toucher, then I use one of those green pan scrub things, you know sponge on one side green scrubby on the other, works a treat.

I had never had a client have tanned palms until I read your thread last time, and strangely enough it happened that weekend!! I have tanned this client many times before and never had a problem but this time she said she slept naked, which as you can imagine you do (without trying to sound rude) touch your legs, tummy etc..... when you are asleep. Do you advise your clients to sleep naked or in old loose clothes. :confused:

It can't be that then. Is it the product you are using? Is it not drying enough? Are they told not to apply moisturiser first? It sounds like you know you stuff so I'm sure you are doing the right things. Baffling
