This time I went well prepared to the beaches because last time when I was in Goa by the end of my trip I started hating my pics :D.I like getting tanned but an even tanned which is light and suits me and not some patchy one which makes me look like Hidamba 😀 Remember her in the serial Ramayana .
My hands get most affected by the ultraviolet rays of the sun and this time too they are affected the most.My face is pretty much clean and this is what I did to protect my self from getting tanned.
1.Neutrogena Ultra sheer dry- touch sunblock SPF 50 –
Beach can do the best test of this sun block and now it has become one of my favorite.I have oily skin and still it didn’t make me feel greasy.I applied it right after taking bath and let it stay on my skin for half an hour before stepping out under the sun.It is waterproof so affect still remains for a while.I frequently re applied it after swimming.Without this it would have become difficult to stay away from sun.Product has been reviewed by Prerana here.
2.St.Ives Apricot Scrub (whitening) –
The first tan removing tip is to washÂ and cleanse the skin daily.This promotes the shedding of the top layer of the skin which helps the skin grow and regenerate.St.Ives Apricot scrub (for all skin types) costs Rs 265 and can be used as a body scrub also.Infact I loved using it.After using my skin felt smooth and I could see some tan removal.
3.I took bath daily with luke warm water at night no matter even if I did in the morning or after swimming.I washed my hair daily and before leaving for Andaman I deep conditioned my hair .
4.Cucumber Juice for detanning –
With this I also made use of my dinner salad.:After taking bath applied cucumber slice on my face .It gives a soothing effect and helps in removing tan.As I couldn’t grate the cucumber I just applied cucumber slice and rubbed it a bit for five minutes every day.
5.In the end tried to save my face with as much sun rays as possible so a cap and goggles were a must.
It looks like lot but it was not.I am also testing an amazing pack forÂ tan removal which was shared by a sweetÂ lady of Andaman .Let me see how it works out after few days of testing till then have a great day ahead:)
