How To Get Rid Of Tan The Natural Way
Having soaked in the glorious sun on your summer vacations, getting back to the grind includes the pesky task of getting rid of the body tan. The most common approach that people take to get rid of tan is bleaching. However, chemical treatments can be harsh on your skin, especially after it has borne the brunt of harmful UVA rays. Read on for a few handy tips to get rid of tan the natural way, while being gentle on your skin.
Turmeric holds the power to cure a host of skin ailments like acne, dark circles, eczema, stretch marks and tans. Curcumin, a compound present in turmeric, contains skin lightening properties that helps getting rid of the uneven skin tone caused by tanning. You can apply a mixture of yoghurt and turmeric directly onto your skin and leave it on for 15-20 minutes to see desired results.
Another way to gently remove tan marks from your skin is to apply potato juice on the affected areas. An enzyme called catecholase is found in potatoes which possess skin lightening properties and helps to remove tan the natural way. Loaded with vital nutrients, fibres and minerals, it gently removes tans and blemishes, leaving you with glowing skin.
The antibacterial properties of aloe vera possess the power of quickly healing our skin from sunburns. Its soothing properties help provide instant relief from burns, while also smoothening the skin. You simply need to apply the gel overnight for a week to rid of tans. However, avoid going out in the sun after its application, as its photosynthetic nature might cause darkening of the skin.
Papain, an enzyme found below the skin of papayas, is known to lighten the skin and reverse the effects of skin tanning. Blessed with antioxidants like vitamin A, C and E, it helps in fading away the marks left from sunburns on your skin. You can make a paste by mashing a few pieces of papaya, a spoonful of honey and cold milk and apply it to get nourished and de-tanned skin within minutes.
