Summer is when people go to the beach to relax, party, and, of course, get a tan. While it’s all in good fun, until you look in the mirror and notice your skin has darkened by two or more shades. A skin tan can leave you feeling a little agitated. Constant sun exposure causes your skin to darken and may also cause dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and sunburns. The sun’s UV rays can deplete your skin’s moisture content, resulting in a dull and pale appearance.
Doesn’t that sound vile? While a tan will fade over time, if you’re in a hurry, try these home remedies. You no longer need to be concerned about spending too much time in the sun or at the beach.
In this article, we’ll look at some ways to get rid of that sun tan in a flash and forget about your worries.
Turmeric, gram, and curd
Yes, this is an Indian classic. Turmeric is an excellent skin brightening agent, and Bengal gram flour (besan) effectively lightens skin. While yoghurt protects your skin from UV rays.
Make a paste of turmeric powder, Besan and Dahi. Apply it on the tanned area and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water. For effective results apply it on alternate days.
Cucumber is excellent for tanned and sunburned skin. Cucumber has a cooling effect and aids in the removal of tan.
- Shred a cucumber and squeeze to extract the juice.
- Apply the juice to your skin with a cotton ball.
- Allow it to dry before washing. You can also add some lemon juice for extra benefits.
Lemon juice and honey
Lemon juice’s bleaching properties can aid in the removal of skin tanning effectively and quickly. All you have to do is combine fresh lemon juice and honey and apply it to your skin. After 30 minutes, wash it off. A gentle scrub can also be used to remove dead skin cells from sun-tanned skin.
Tomato, aloe vera, and masoor dal mask
Masoor dal is an effective treatment for sun tan. Tomato juice brightens the skin, while aloe vera soothes and hydrates it.
For 30 minutes, soak a tablespoon of masoor dal in water. Grind it and combine it with aloe vera and tomato puree in a blender. Put it on your face. After 30 minutes, rinse it off. This mask will revitalise, brighten, and cleanse your skin. You should use the mask twice a week.
So, all my tanned readers, don’t fret about the holiday or summer. Use these masks on your face and body to get rid of the tan in no time. And you can thank me in the comments after my remedies have worked out for you.
