Now, here comes the part which many of us won’t like to do but this is for those people who have extreme sunburns in their skin and no amount of natural ways or products can treat their skin. I am talking about Chemical based treatments here which are really expensive but you really need to go through them if you want to get that even skin tone back!


Microdermabrasion is not just regular scrubbing that we do in our homes. It takes chemically produced products and even some simple machinery in action to gently clean of the tan from within and leaves skin supple and soft. This also prevents skin from over-drying and this, in turn, helps to prevent further tanning and dullness as well.

Chemical peels:

Chemical peels can be harsh on your skin but when you are too desperate to get your skin free from tan, this is the only way out. This chemical peels involve a number of chemically treated creams and other strong active ingredients that work together and give your natural skin tone back. But, this sort of a treatment shouldn’t be done on a regular interval and shouldn’t be done on sensitive skin.

Snail Treatment:

This treatment is also used in tan removal for making skin radiant.
