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 mild tanned skin then rub some peeled potato skin on the tanned skin. You can apply raw potato juice for instant relief.
