Easy ways to get rid of sun tan

6 Jun

Hi lovelies. How’s your weekend so far? Mine is super busy (as usual). No matter how busy I get I always try to take time out for my awesome readers 🙂

This post is sure to make a lot of my friends in the Middle East and South Asia happy. While the western side of the world is spending bucks to get tanned, we are trying our best to avoid it. Thanks to the mighty sun, we are more prone to pigmentation and tanning. Below are some quick and easy remedies to get rid of tan naturally:

1) Cucumber, Rose Water and Lemon Juice Pack:

Lemon acts as a natural bleaching agent. The cucumber juice and rose water act as cooling agents for soothing the blemished skin. Take a tablespoon each of cucumber juice, lemon juice and rose water and mix in a bowl. Apply with cotton ball on tanned areas, wait for 10 minutes and wash off with cold water. Apply this pack every day.

2) Gram Flour and Turmeric Face Pack:

This pack acts as a scrubs while turmeric helps in brightening the skin. Mix 2 tablespoons of gram flour, a pinch of turmeric, 1 table spoon of milk, and 1 table spoon of crushed orange peel in a bowl with cold rose water. Apply on clean face and let it dry for 20 minutes. Moist the dried areas by sprinkling water on it and slowly remove the pack by scrubbing gently in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction. Apply this pack once in two days for effective exfoliation and tan removal.

3) Papaya and Honey Face Pack:

The enzymes in papaya are known for skin renewal, whitening, exfoliation and restoration. Honey helps in moisturizing and softening the skin. For this pack, take half cup of ripe papaya pulp and mash it well, add a tablespoon of honey and mix well. Apply on clean face and let it dry for 30 minutes. Rinse off with water.

4) Tomato, Yogurt and Lemon Juice Face Pack:

This pack works wonders in removing dark spots and pigmentation. The citric property of tomato, yogurt and lemon juice works as natural bleach. In addition, tomato juice works as a natural toner to shrink open pores and reduce oiliness of skin. In order to prepare this pack mix 2 tablespoons of tomato pulp, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of yogurt in a bowl and apply on face. Let it dry for 30 minutes. Wash with cold water. The tomato juice may cause an itchy sensation in the beginning, but it will mellow down with regular application.

5) Aloe Vera, Masoor Daal (Red Lentil) and Tomato Face Pack:

Red lentil helps in clearing even severe tanning. It, along with aloe vera gel and tomatoes, acts as a complete skin rejuvenator. Soak a tablespoon of red lentil in water for 20 minutes and then grind it to make a paste. Mix this paste with fresh aloe vera gel and 1 tablespoon of tomato pulp and massage on face and neck. Keep for 20 minutes and rinse off with water.

6) Oat Meal and Butter Milk Exfoliating Pack:

Butter milk helps in soothing skin and healing blisters and oatmeal acts as a natural scrub that exfoliates skin, removes blackheads and dead cells. Mix 2 tablespoond of oatmeal with 3 tablespoons of butter milk and apply on face and body. Gently massage in circular motion. Let it stay for 15-20 minutes and cleanse with water.

7) Orange Juice and Yogurt Face Pack:

Orange is rich in vitamin C that helps fight skin blemishes. Collagen found in orange slows down the process of skin aging and helps in skin tightening. Yogurt acts as a natural bleach and moisturizer to make skin soft and supple. Mix 1 tablespoon each of yogurt and orange juice and apply on face. Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse off with water.

8) Potato and Lemon Juice Face Pack:

Potato is loaded with vitamins, minerals, protein and fibers. Potato juice helps treat skin aging, blemishes and sun burn. It sooths the skin and calms it. Extract the juice of one potato using a grinder, mix a tablespoon of lemon juice with it and apply on face and other affected areas. Let it dry for 30-40 minutes. Wash off with cold water.

I hope these remedies will help you out in achieving a clear, glowing and healthy skin. I’ll be waiting to hear your feedback.
