The summer doesn’t always come with good news for your skin. Skin tanning usually occurs after prolonged exposure to sunlight, which leads to a dull complexion. Depending on your skin type, you should always look for a particular formula to remove the sun tan. Instead of getting lured into buying expensive skin creams or lotions, there are some natural methods that can be effective in removing the tan. It doesn’t mean that all expensive cosmetic products are safe and efficient in dealing with skin issues like tanning. Some could be potentially harmful to your skin. Here are some simple and effective natural home remedies to get rid of sun tanned skin:
If you have a dull complexion resulting from sun exposure, you should think of yoghurt as a useful and pocket-friendly approach for minimizing the tan. Other than making your skin radiant and glowing, yoghurt also cools your skin and reduces skin redness. Also, it tightens your pores for a smooth and supple skin.
You can also use some fresh yoghurt on your skin before taking a shower. For improved results, add lime juice and tomato juice to the yoghurt.
2. Raw Potato
Raw potato can go a long way in alleviating dull complexion resulting from sun tanned skin. Raw potato is rich in vitamin C, which is essential in nourishing the skin and fighting free radicals that cause cell damage. Also, it works as a natural bleach and also helps to soothe sunburn.
To enhance the results of raw potato on sun tanned skin, add some lemon juice before applying it on your face.
Cucumber juice is also another excellent natural remedy for diminishing a sun tan. On top of eliminating a sun tan, cucumber is also useful for soothing your skin if it is irritating or itching. It is also an excellent source of vitamin C to fight free radicals, moisturize your skin and tighten your pores.
Enhance the outcome of cucumber on your skin by adding lime juice before applying it.
4. Gram Flour
Gram flour is very crucial in treating sun tan. It works as exfoliant, assisting in the removal of dead skin cells, leaving your skin both youthful and radiant. To treat sun tan, you can get gram flour from your local market or prepare your paste using whole green gram.
To improve the results of gram flour on your skin, mix it with rosewater instead of plain water. You can also add some lime juice and yoghurt when preparing the paste.
5. Red Lentils
Also called Masoor dal, red lentils have long been used in cosmetic products for dealing with dull complexion and other skin issues. You can include red lentils in your regular face pack of making your body scrubs to use every week to get a healthy and beautiful skin.
Red lentils paste not only removes the tan but also helps in the removal of dead skin cells for a brighter complexion. Using this pack regularly can result in acne and blemish-free clean skin with little effort.
Extended exposure to sunlight, particularly in summer, can result to tanning of your skin. This can happen to anyone irrespective of their skincare routine as most cosmetic products may not offer enough protection against sun damage. Fortunately, you don’t have always to dig deeper into your pocket to buy expensive skincare products for dealing with sun tanned skin. You can brighten your skin using pure natural home remedies, including red lentils, yoghurt, cucumber, raw potato and gram flour. These five simple preparations can give you a more youthful and brighter complexion.
