Summers are good. From our pretty floral dresses to breezy sea-sides, everything about the season is amazing – except the sun tan that sticks to your skin and never goes back! We all know that tan can become stubborn and stay for a long time on our skin. So how to remove tan from skin, so that you no longer have to worry about stepping out in the sun? Here are some of the proven ayurvedic tips to remove tan from the times of our great grand-mothers:
1. Lemon Juice and Honey – Magical combo of lemon juice and honey is proven for showing instant results in removing skin tan. Lemon is proven to remove melanin causing agents in our skin and honey nourishes and moisturizes the skin. Combine both the ingredients and apply daily for 2 weeks, and be amazed by the results. This can be considered one of the best tan removers.
2. Tomato and Rice Flour – Try this, you wouldn’t be disappointed: Take juice of 1 tomato and mix it with 1 teaspoon of rice flour. Apply this paste as a scrub for your face and you would be amazed to see how it removes sun tan instantly. It is a great scrub to be often (once every fortnight) to remove dead skin. Tomato is a rich source of Vitamin C, which has a track record in Ayurveda, to increase antioxidants and lighten skin complexion.
3. Gram Flour and Turmeric – Since ancient times, turmeric is said to be a powerful source of anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce scarring. Gram flour also exfoliates dead skin cells, making the skin appear fresh and rejuvenated.
