Yes, You Can Now Remove Your Tan Naturally

Six face packs with the goodness of natural ingredients to remove the most stubborn tan and nourish your skin.


We have heard a gazillion times that using sunscreen is necessary to protect our skin from sun damage, and we even adhere to the rules. Yet sometimes even the best sunscreen in the market can’t save our skin from tanning. And I’m yet to meet an Indian woman [or man for that ma er!] who is happy to show off tanned skin.

Here are a few home remedies that will help you get rid of that tan.

1 Multani mitti and lemon

Fuller’s Earth or multani mitti is a potent ingredient for every skin problem and lemon is rich in vitamin C and has natural bleaching properties. When these two ingredients come together, they make an excellent face mask for oily acne-prone skin. It will help in lightening the skin, deep cleanse pores and tighten the skin.

How to make

Take 1tbsp of multani mitti and add lemon juice to it to form the consistency of a cream. Apply all over the face and neck and keep it on for 30 mins. Once completely dry, wash it off with cold water and pat dry the skin. Apply aloe vera gel to moisturise and soothe the skin.

2 Yoghurt and honey

Yoghurt is loaded with zinc which is the best medicine for sun-scorched skin. It has natural bleaching properties that help lighten skin tan. Honey has moisturising properties. With regular usage, it adds a glow to the skin by restoring its deepest layers. It is loaded with anti-oxidants that slow down the signs of ageing like wrinkles and fi ne lines. Both honey and yoghurt together help to repair skin damage by sun. This face mask is the best option for those with normal to dry skin types.
