get rid of sun tan

Alas! It’s time to pack away our jackets and sweaters, and welcome the summer ushering ourselves in colorful, floral dresses. It is, in fact, a perfect time for holidays with friends and family in parks and beaches; however, not to forget, that with all the happiness and excitement, comes along the unattractive and ugly skin tan, especially on our faces and hands. Most people, I know, opt for quick bleaching sessions to get rid of sun tan, but that isn’t a solution, believe me. Choosing the other method – the natural ways to get rid of sun tan is the best option; not only does it removes the tanning on our skin, but it also leaves our skin with a smooth texture.

What happens if we don’t take proper measures to get rid of sun tan?

Sun tan is a result of excessive exposure to the sun, especially to the ultra-violet rays coming out of the sun; these rays boost the melanin secretion in our skin, which further leads to skin darkening. There are various ailments associated with sun tan including pimples and acne, wrinkles and fine lines, hyper-pigmentation and dark spots, skin burn and premature skin aging. Extreme exposure of skin to these harmful UV rays may also lead to skin cancer.

In this article, I will be discussing the most convenient, natural ways to get rid of sun tan using home-made facial packs:
