You could use coconut butter for two reasons. First, it is all natural and second, it will help. Put some warm water on it and do it all over again.

My 2 year old wrote all over her face with a black sharpie. I used a baby wipe and it came off easily, no problem.

Use Clearasil Stayclear Oil-Free Daily Face Wash. My daughter and her friend used this after they painted their face with Mr. Sketch. We used soap, water, rubbing alcohol. Nothing worked but Clearsil worked.

An answer to the question advised using Mr. Clean Eraser. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS as the warning on the box specifically states. I used it (without checking the warning on the box) and my 5 year has a very bad abrasion as a result.

Editor's Note: As with any advice you find on the internet, please use caution with any substance that is not intended to be used on skin. Always read and follow the manufacturer's guidelines.

I have used various brands of hand/body lotion. Rubbing alcohol works as well. If you have hand sanitizer it works too, but takes longer.

I just read through all these painstaking suggestions, some of which seem pretty abrasive to your skin! Luckily before I tried any of these solutions, I used my skincare/face wipes.

I was sitting on the sofa and I was decorating my note book. I took the marker apart and started to squeeze it. A lot of stuff came out; so my question is, how do you get Sharpie off your hands?

When my friend was all marked up for radiation treatments, she told me that baby oil would remove the permanent marker. Hope this helps.

How do you remove permanent marker off of a 3 year old's skin?

Well what people do at work is use makeup remover or toothpaste. It works really well. (11/24/2010)

Rubbing alcohol will often take most of it off. Do not use anywhere near the eyes, nose, or mouth; and you might want to test on the inside of his/her arm, as sometimes it stings. I have never tried the toothpaste, but it sounds like the safest bet. Be aware that every parent will look at your child and chuckle to themselves, because we have all been there, done that! It says nothing about your parenting, except that you are raising a child with a good imagination and maybe a little artistic flair! (11/24/2010)

Take a picture to save for them when they grow up and their child does the same thing! It will wear off and won't hurt your child's skin as much as trying to remove it will. Live with it, most kids do this! (11/29/2010)

This reminds me of the time my then 4 year old son donned his turtleneck, jeans, vest and cowboy hat, his Mickey Mouse sheriff badge and drew a 5 o'clock shadow on himself and declared he was the Lego Sheriff! Nice long soaks in the tubby helped, but I didn't scrub it off. It was off in a few days. Cherish those moments! They grow up so fast! (11/29/2010)

The oils, shaving cream, and the rest all work. I have also used "Goo Gone" or "Dissolvit", on kids, carpets, upholstery, and you name it. Then I follow with the soap of my choice, though Dawn and Windex always work! Darn kids. Lipstick on a cream rug, always bad, but after the above treatment, not a trace. Good luck. (11/29/2010)

Toothpaste takes out sharpie ink off skin. The gel won't work. It has to be the paste type. Coat the area and allow it to sit a minute, then wipe off.

My son did this earlier this year. I found that Dawn dish soap worked wonders and not too much discomfort in getting it off of him as well. (08/30/2010)
