We Indian woman do not enjoy tanning and the reason being that it rarely looks beautiful on us. It doesn’t give any bronzy look which we women crave for. So if you are flashing those dark and light strips on your body because of harsh sun exposure then these tips can help you in getting rid of the sun tanned skin. These tips can also help you in your summer skin care
1. If you have a mildly tanned skin then rub some peeled potato skin on the tanned skin. You can apply raw potato juice for instant relief.
For severely tanned skin, peel off a cucumber and grind them in a mixer grinder. Take out its juice and add 1tsp of cold milk in it. Mix it well and apply the mixture to the tanned area. Wash off the juice within twenty minutes and follow this twice a day. You can store the cucumber juice for two days to speed up the process.
3. If you have dry skin then mix sugar, lemon juice and glycerine and use it as a scrub on the tanned area. Use it in a circular motion and get yourself rid of the tan within a week.
4. Take one lemon juice and mix it with 1tbsp. of honey. Apply it over the sun tanned area. Regular application will lighten the skin and remove tan.
5. My mum used to apply boiled and mashed cabbage leaves pulp juice all over the tanned area but I found the process pretty complicated. If you are comfortable doing it then follow the mash cabbage juice tip daily for a week.
These are my few tried and tested de-tanning tips. Do you have any to share with us?
