5 Home Remedies To Get Rid Of A Tan
You’ve gone for a holiday, and while you’ve been wearing your golden tan with pride for a while now, the gold is starting to fade, and now your face just looks patchy! Or maybe your daily commute exposes you to the harsh sun, which gets your melanin to go on an overdrive, and again, the tan makes an appearance.
Now, we are all for a sexy tan, but if you want to look less like you got attacked by the sun, here are a few ways to de-tan with everything you probably have in your kitchen.
Here are 5 awesome home remedies to get rid of a tan.
Tomatoes are power-packed performers when it comes to skin. Take a few plump tomatoes, squeeze out the juice and apply this on your skin. Wash this off, and say goodbye to the tan. Refrain from eating the said tomatoes. Just saying.
Bright, cheery lemons can help you de-tan. Not because they are bright and cheery, but because lemons have natural bleaching properties that will have your tan well on its way out. I recommend mixing the lemon drops with a little aloe vera, so the concoction isn’t too strong.
Potatoes taste best when they are French fries. But that won’t help your tan. Let’s focus here, shall we? You want potato juice, and you’ll need to shred a raw potato for that, squeeze out the juice, and apply this on the tanned areas. Wash it off when you feel like it’s really tight on your skin. Voila, the tan is still there, but it will fade away.
Papayas have their names etched in gold in the skincare hall of fame, you know, if there was one. They are good when you eat them for sure, but they are also great to de-tan. Apply the pulp of a raw papaya generously all over the face, and wait for 30 minutes. Wash it off with cold water.
5. Cucumber, Aloe Vera And Rose Water
Cucumber is also a skincare favourite, and rightfully so. It cools the skin, refreshes it, and makes it look fabulous. Pair cucumber juice with aloe vera and rose water to make a sort of water-y, gooey paste. Now slather it on the tanned areas. Wash it off once dry, and while not immediately, the tan will eventually fade away.
Use these home remedies at least once or twice a week to see a difference over time!
