Every other day we keep trying this or that remedy to remove tanning from our skin or at least to lighten that tan. Tanning is caused due to overexposure of skin in sun, not applying proper sunscreen while stepping outside. One should apply sunscreen even if the weather is cloudy because in that weather the skin gets more tanned. Skin can lead to tanning in form of burning sensation or can darken your skin if you do not care while stepping out and then back. Tanning really looks bad when you have to wear sleeveless and your skin shows 2 shades i.e brighter and darker skin, generally the part of the body uncovered gets tanned.
