Everyone have skin tanning problem. We spend pocket full of money on various products to get rid of skin tan. I hate tanned skin, be it after a beach vacation or even a day out on the roads in during Indian summers. It is easy to get tanned. And it was found in research that sun tan can cause acne or pimple and premature aging symptoms in the form of wrinkles.
So today I am sharing some natural tips on how to remove tan from arms and face. You can apply these natural packs to get rid of the tan from your face, arms, hands, neck, back and feet the natural way. These age old home treatments need at least a week of regular use to obtain noticeable results against the tan and to get your natural color back.
Sugar Lemon Scrub
Lemon is the most reliable ingredient for tan removal, whereas sugar is a good cleansing agent. Apply the mixture of sugar and lemon juice on your face and wash it after 20 minutes after it gets a little dry. If you have dry skin, then add a few drops of glycerin to the mixture.
Curd and Turmeric Mixture
Just like lemon, curd is also acidic in nature. Hence, it is also very effective for tan removal. Just mix a bowl of chilled curd with a pinch of turmeric powder and apply this mixture on your tanned areas like face, neck and arms etc. After leaving it for about 30 minutes, wash it off with cold water. Acid in curd will remove tanning and dead skin cells and turmeric will make your skin glow naturally.
Almonds are also very good at removing tan from hands. Take 5-10 almonds (soaked overnight) and grind them. Mix this paste with 5 drops of sandalwood oil. Apply this paste on the affected area. You can also use milk cream if sandalwood oil is not available to the paste and apply on the affected area to make the skin fair.
Oats and Buttermilk
You can prepare a mixture of oats and buttermilk and rub on the affected area. Buttermilk soothes the skin whereas oats help in exfoliating.
Raw Milk, Turmeric And Lemon
Make a paste of raw milk, turmeric and lemon. Apply the mixture to the skin and let it dry. Once it is completely dried wash it off with some cool water
Papayas are very good at removing the skin tan and making it smooth.Take the pulp of mashed papaya and rub it on the tanned area. Papaya is excellent for the skin and also helps in anti-ageing.
Now there are two ways you can use cucumber to help you remove tan. First apply a mixture of rose water, cucumber juice and a dash of lemon juice once a day. Lemon juice helps reduce the tan while rose water and cucumber work as cooling agents. Another way is to use a mixture of grated cucumber(1/2 cucumber), milk(2tbsp) and lemon juice (few drops). Apply this on the affected area and let it dry.Wash with normal water. Applying this weekly will give you best results.
Take half a cup of tomato puree (made of fresh tomatoes ) and mix it with 2 tbsp on lemon. Apply it on tanned skin and let it stay for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water. Use this remedy for 15 days to see positive results. You can also rub the inner side of tomato on the skin, so that the seeds and juice come in contact with the skin, helping you get rid of tanned skin.
