Remove Suntan Through Home Remedies

By Gowrish Babu

After a long vacation, you bring back sweet memories of your trip along with a new tan look.

A tan can make you look disastrous when you plan to wear a lovely dress that hugs your curves. The only way to remove the tan from your skin is to wait patiently for the tan itself to fade.

Here are some home remedies where you can make the tan fade away and your skin light.

1. Mix together 5 tablespoons of rosewater and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply this mixture to the affected area before you go to bed. Wash it off the next morning. This helps to get rid of the suntan.

2. Make a paste of saffron powder/turmeric powder and lemon juice helping the suntan to become lighter.

3. A tablespoon of gram flour mixed well with a little milk and few drops of lemon juice. Let it be on your face for about 15 minutes and then wash off.

4. Apply the juice of tomato with a little lemon juice. Wash it off after 20 minutes with cold water. This will help to remove the suntan. Continue this treatment for at least 15 days.

5. Raw potato is also very affective to remove suntan. Rub slices of raw potato to our skin which helps to also improve your skin tone.

These home remedies are effective and healthy for your skin as they don"t contain any harsh chemicals.
