Six Effective Methods to Remove Sun Tan

We all like our cool breezy dresses, and sunny shades as the summers are approaching, but what do we fear the most about this weather?- The Ruthless Sun. 

When UVA rays penetrate the skin layers, they signal the skin’s cells to produce excess melanin which further darkens the skin and causes skin tanning. Exposure to the sun causes tanning and triggers skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and blemishes. The sun’s harmful radiations strip the moisture from the skin and make it appear dull and fatigued. We all are well aware that tanning can become stubborn and does not go away smoothly. 

Are you also stressed about stepping out in the sun? Then do not worry, we’ve got you covered! 

Here are some easy yet effective ways for skin tan removal: -

USE TOMATO AS A HOME REMEDY TO REMOVE SUN TAN FROM FACE

Tomato has proven to be a trusted ingredient for our beauty and skincare concerns. It is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants that promote the growth of collagen in the body. It alleviates sunburns and rashes and acts as a natural barrier against the sun.  

Here’s how you can use tomato at home- 

  • Mash a tomato and separate its pulp. Apply the tomato juice all over your face. 
  • Let it dry off completely and wash it with lukewarm water.

CONCLUSION

While all these home remedies are exceptional for skin tan removal, applying sunscreen on the exposed body parts and face before getting out in the sun is of utmost importance. The Lotus Sunscreen Lotion is exceptional to avoid all the sun tanning and protects you from unnecessary sun exposure. Always try to cover your face using a scarf or wear sunglasses, because excess Vitamin D can also prove harmful to your skin. Use these remedies regularly that suit your skin type, and you will be good to go in the approaching sunny days!
