Melanin, the dark brown pigment of the skin is the culprit behind all the tanning havoc we have to go through, phew! Skin tones that are exposed to a higher amount of melanin are prone to greater tanning risk than those with less melanin content.
This summer we urge you to overpower the evil acts of melanin and take charge of your skin health to achieve fairer complexion and glowing skin. Here are a few simple and easy steps to overcome summer tan in no time.
Sun tan Remedy #1: Yogurt and Gram flour Mix
A time tested remedy from the treasure trove of Grandma, yogurt and gramflour is the best face pack for a clearer complexion.
Take curd and gram flour in equal parts and mix it with either papaya juice or lemon juice. Apply it on your face for 20 minutes and rinse with milk and water.
The pack is very useful in removing dead skin cells, exfoliating the skin, and removing the unwanted tan.
Sun tan Remedy #2 Lemon and Aloevera
Vitamin C is a best anti-dote to a stubborn tan and lemon is the best, natural source of Vitamin C.
Mix lemon juice with Aloe Vera gel (freshly squeezed out of the Aloe Vera plant leaves) and apply it to your face till it gets dry. Simply rinse with water and enjoy glowing, happy, fresh skin.
Sun tan Remedy #3: Raw tomatoes and Honey Solution
The lycopene of the tomatoes will nourish the skin deeply and will work as a bleaching agent, leaving the skin whitened almost instantly. Don’t believe us? Try it!
Blend the pulp of raw tomatoes with honey and apply this mask on your face for 15 minutes.
Sun tan Remedy #4: Sandalwood and Rose Water
Sandalwood has been stated for its myriad benefits time and again.
Achieving fairer skin and a smooth complexion by mixing sandalwood with rose water is easier than one can think.
Rose water will work as a toner and bleacher as well, giving double dose in a single shot.
Sun tan Remedy #5: Oats and Cucumber Pack
Whether it is a cucumber cooler or a cucumber face pack, both soothes a sun burnt body or skin, respectively. And when you will add oats powder to it, it will work as an exfoliator and scrub too.
We say, this summer wear light, eat right, and care for the bright.
