It may be one thing to lie in the sun and tan on a beach abroad, but tanning in India is alarming. Being born in a country where the sun is visible enough, we rarely want to tan. While in India most women are troubled by tanning. And they take various measures to overcome it. But it’s better to try something than to try everything that Grandma Nani has been relying on for years. Yes, my mother has the same treasure she got from her mother. Today, from the same treasure, we have brought such means that can easily remove tanning.
First understand what is tanning?
Summers are more painful than winters. Strong sun rays have a negative effect on the internal and external health of the organism. The heat hits the skin directly, causing the skin to lose its luster and darken, which is called tanning. Tanning is a major problem for women because their skin is more sensitive than men’s skin.
When you roll up your sleeves and realize there’s a difference in your skin tone, you start applying anything and everything that claims to get rid of your tan. But are you sure it’s healthy for your skin? No matter how “organic” these products are and are made from “natural” products, they are chemically used to reduce production costs and increase shelf life.
There is nothing more natural than real natural ingredients and we are happy to inform you that they can be used to remove tan naturally.
Here are some natural remedies to get rid of tan:
Rubbing potato slices on the skin is one of the oldest home remedies to get rid of tan or any dark pigmentation. Potatoes are rich in an enzyme called catecholase, which helps lighten the skin. They also contain antioxidants that fight against free radicals that increase with prolonged exposure to the sun.
2. Pineapple pulp
Mix pineapple pulp with honey and apply on the tanned area and wash off after 20 minutes. It reverses skin damage by lightening the skin because it is rich in vitamins A and C. Pineapple also contains antioxidants and an enzyme called bromelain that helps fight free radicals.
Strawberries are just as delicious as when they get rid of the tan. Rich in AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and vitamin C, strawberries have natural skin brightening properties. Mash a few strawberries and mix them with a spoonful of fresh cream. Apply to the skin for 20 minutes and wash off with cold water. This will lighten the color of your skin and give it moisture.
Lemon is known for being a natural bleaching agent. You will hardly find a natural face pack that does not use lemon. Its high content of citric acid and vitamin C helps to get rid of dead skin cells and also to remove melanin that causes tan.
5. Aloe Vera
Rich in vitamin E and good for all things beauty. Aloe vera is always on the list when it comes to glowing and healthy looking skin. It has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that cool the skin and help in removing tan. Apply it every day as a moisturizer.
