20 people who made a mistake with the self-tanning cream

For some people, bronzed skin is an absolute must, but if neither the sun nor the sunbed achieve the desired effect, many reach for so-called self-tanning cream. However, the application of products like this can, occasionally, be a delicate procedure. Often, too much is applied to the skin, with the result that it becomes a most unnatural color, transforming the person who wears it into a bizarre mutant.

The following 20 photos show what it looks like when too much self-tanning cream is applied.
