This does not mean you have to ditch the idea of colouring your hair at home, you only need to be a little more careful by taking some precautions. But even after this you do end up getting some colour onto your skin, fret not, as we have discovered two really simple ways to get rid of all the unsightly colour in no time! Read on to find out what they are… 

Be cautious

Remember the age old adage, precaution is always better than cure? It is easier to prevent the colour from sticking to your skin than it is to remove it later on. Therefore before you begin, start by applying a thin and even layer of Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly all around your hairline and ears to prevent the colour from sticking to your skin. Additionally, you could dye second day hair as the natural oils from your scalp provide an added layer of protection against stains.

Use a face scrub

The first hack to remove dye stains from your face is to use a gentle, non-abrasive face scrub on the affected area ASAP. We recommend you to try the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub immediately on the affected area. Simply massage this product on the stain to help loosen it and then wash it off cold water. Use a gentle hand while doing so, because you surely do not want to irritate your skin.

Try some makeup remover

We are honestly so grateful that a waterproof makeup remover is such a versatile product and we are saying this because waterproof is an amazing way to get rid of stubborn dye stains. Since this product is specially formulated to be used on the face, it is a lot more gentle than your nail polish remover that is usually recommended for this job. Simply apply a makeup remover soaked cotton pad onto the affected area and remove after 5 minutes.
