How To Use Tomato For De-tanning The Skin?

By Amrutha

Skin tan is one of the most common skin issues that all of us face. The scorching heat of the sun not only makes our skin tanned but can cause several other damages to our skin like pigmentation, blemishes, dry skin, etc. Though the ready-made sunscreen lotions available in the market can help you to some extent, using that alone cannot solve this skin issue.

One should also use other remedies alternatively that will help in getting rid of the tans permanently and effectively. For this, we have the solution right in our kitchen. And this time it's nothing else but a simple vegetable, tomato.
