Easy Tan Removal - 15 Effective Home Remedies

Tanned skin can make you feel fabulous or make you hide in your room till it goes away. While it eventually fades out, try out these effective at-home quick fixes for easy tan removal!

We don’t think much about our skin while we are on a vacation, sipping on an ice-cold drink; basking in the sun on a beach. It is all fun and games will the vacation is over and reality hits us once we are back home. You take one look at yourself in the mirror and suddenly you are two shades darker! Let me get this straight right away, there is absolutely nothing wrong with tanned skin as it eventually fades away. However, for some of us, we want the golden sun-kissed tan to go away faster. It might be because we would miss the beach every time, we look at the tan. No matter what your reason is, we got your back.

Skin tanning may look good for some people but it also comes with some skin issues like hyperpigmentation and dark spots. UV index is at the highest during summers when the light rays are at their strongest potential. Harmful UV radiation strips the skin of its moisture content and eventually makes it appear pale and dull. Another concern is exposure to infrared radiation emitted by the sun during this time of the year. The IR-A rays induce free radicals in the dermis and diminish the skin's antioxidant capacity, the main cause of premature skin aging. In a country like India, we always have the bright sun shining over us. We tend not to care enough about applying sunscreen while running errands, dropping off the kids to school or while running late for an important meeting. Even the smallest amount of sun exposure can lead to tanning. Most of our day is spent outside, working or walking around doing some or the other house work. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to protect our precious skin while carrying out our chores.

To avoid sun damage, many companies come up with de-tanning products during the onset of summers. Most of these products have chemical-based ingredients to remove the effect of tan by stripping off the skin and quite literally BLEACHING the skin layers. Applying bleach to the skin all the time is like pour acid over it every time you get tanned. In order to eliminate the damage caused by the brightest star in our galaxy while also avoiding chemicals, here are a few at-home remedies to get rid of sun damage effectively!
