Hi, I am a 26 year-old journalist. Since my profession demands constant exposure to the sun, my skin has tanned badly. Please suggest me some natural ways to would get rid of my tan.
Applying a sunscreen is the best precaution you can take to protect yourself from getting tanned. Sunscreen only works if you use it properly. SPF 15 is a good start but apply it half an hour prior to stepping outdoors. If you plan to stay outdoors for longer, use SPF 30.
However here are also some lemon-based home-made packs that would help you to ease your tan.
1) Sugar and lemon pack: Sugar is considered the best cleansing agent. Apply the mixture of sugar and lemon juice on your face and wash it after 20 minutes. If you have dry skin, then add a few drops of glycerine to the mixture.
2) Honey and lemon juice pack: Mix two tablespoons of honey with a few drops of lemon juice and apply it on the affected area once or twice a day. Apply the mixture for a few minutes and wash it off with cold water. You can also say goodbye other skin and hair problems using honey.
Besides, covering your face with a light-coloured cloth is always helpful to avoid tan.
