Skin tan is one of the most common things that we are afraid of when going for an outdoor trip.
Although outdoor trips bring lots of cheer and happiness on every girl’s face, one thing that haunts us is, how to get back our skins original colour after the vacation.
Not all of us would have time and money to go to a parlour and get a tan removal treatment. For all such people who wish to save some time, we are listing some home remedies that really work to remove your skin tan faster(If used regularly).
Multani mitti face pack
Although most of us use Multani Mitti face pack often, mixing it with few more ingredients would help to remove skin tan.
Procedure: Mix Multani Mitti powder with a pinch of baking soda and a pinch of Cinnamon powder (just grind a cinnamon) and then add milk, lemon juice, honey and rosewater and heat on the stove for not more than a minute. After which you can start applying on your face, neck and hands and let it dry for some time and wash.
This helps in tan removal and reduction of pimples on your face. You can see a good change in your skin in the first use itself. It works!!
Take a potato and peel it off. After peeling it, cut the potato into slices and start rubbing it gently on your skin. It helps in lightening your skin colour and reduces dark spots if used regularly. However, this would not give you an instant result.
