Many late-night comedians have commented on President-elect #Donald Trump's noticeably orange skin tone, speculating that it may be from a tanning bed or too much self-tanner. While Trump's hair is always a conversation starter, celebrity makeup artist Victoria Stiles is intent on helping our nation's next president make his skin lose the tangerine glow before he is sworn in on Friday.

Stiles, who is based in Washington, D.C., has worked her magic on notable celebs and political figures including actress Jenna Elfman, legendary singer Roberta Flack, Vice President Joe Biden, and former President George Bush's daughters, Jenna and Barbara.

And although she hasn't been hired by Trump, she recently doled out some free advice on how the president-elect can "de-Orange" his skin.

Why so orange?

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Stiles states that she has a "theory" that Donald Trump's "orangeness" may be the result of time spent in a tanning bed, as evidenced by the "white rings around his eyes" that she says could be from wearing goggles often used in tanning salons.

In order to remove that iconic orange glow from his skin, the president-elect would have to spend an entire weekend following the instructions below. Considering he will be wandering around the White House this weekend, perhaps he will cut back on tweeting and take care of his skin during the days leading up to Friday's inaugural festivities.

'De-orange' tips

Victoria Stiles tells Vanity Fair that a combination of baking soda and lemon juice could help change Trump's skin tone if he applies the mixture twice a day over the course of two days.

"Using his little hands, he should apply this cleansing salve all over his face and let it set for 10 minutes," Stiles states. "Rinse and repeat, morning and night. If he follows my instructions, it will lift the orange to reveal his actual skin tone."

Will Donald Trump read and follow the D.C. makeup artist's recommendations before #Inauguration Day? Will will find out soon enough when he gets sworn in on Friday on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
