If you've ever attempted to scrub fake tan off for over an hour in the shower then you'll know the wonder of a new fake tan removal trick.

But TikTokers Victoria and Jacqui Hondrou - collectively known as @hondroutwins - have baffled some users after coming up with a way of removing any excess tan from one of the biggest problem areas - your hands.

You can watch the video below:

In the clip, the TikTokers begin by rubbing fake tan mousse all over their hands, including the palms. While this ensures the tan reaches all areas of the hand, it leaves the palms looking very tanned, which can appear unnatural.

To combat this, Victoria and Jacqui advise taking some toothpaste and swirling it into the palms of your hands with a brush.

As they swirl, the tan can be seen coming away from the palm of the hand. They then take a wet cloth and remove any excess toothpaste.

"Rub that fake tan in like moisturiser, don't forget your knuckles there," they explain.

"Using a brush, some toothpaste, we're going to swirly whirl it in. Using a wet towel I just wipe it off... and it should turn out really nice. Also don't forget to wipe your nails as well."

But other TikTokers were baffled by the idea, with many suggesting they simply use the brush to tan the backs of their hands without needing to use product on the palms too, only to remove it afterwards.

One person wrote: "Just use the brush to apply the tan to your hands."

While another said: "That’s actually MORE effort. Just use the brush to put the tan on instead and avoid the back."

And a third added: "Wasn't it easier to use the brush to apply it on the hands??"

Meanwhile a fourth commented: "Why don’t you just use the brush to apply it to the top?"

What do you think?
