So you finally made it to Bali or Goa with your girls and just spent the whole day at the beach? Or you were just out all day running errands on a hot day? Let us guess, either way, you ended up coming back home all tanned. Well, that is not good as now you have tan lines, uneven skin tone and black spots all over your face.
Don’t worry because we have just the solution for you! Here are 3 easy and fast ways to get rid of stubborn tan lines and get even and spotless skin.
Lemon Juice and honey
Thanks to Vitamin C, lemon juice has bleaching and brightening agents and is also an excellent exfoliant. Scrubbing your tanned skin with a mixture of lemon juice and honey can help you get rid of tan lines and get brighter complexion and even toned skin.
How to: To make this detan face pack, take two tablespoon of organic honey and add a few drops of lemon juice to it. Mix and apply it on the affected areas and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Rinse and repeat twice a day.
Raw milk and turmeric
Raw milk has lactic acid and is a natural moisturiser. It not only removes tan lines but also sooths sunburns and lends a healthy glow to your skin. Raw milk when mixed with some turmeric does a stellar job at lightening the tanned skin and moisturising it.
How to: Prepare this mask by taking half cup of raw milk and mixing a pinch of turmeric in it. Mix well and dip a cotton ball into the mixture. Apply it on the tan lines and wash your face with lukewarm water after half an hour.
Cucumber and rose water
A summer staple, cucumber works like a charm on your tanned skin. It has cooling properties and high water content which helps cool off your skin and fade away the tan lines. Also, it has skin lightening agents which lightens and brightens your skin tone.
How to: Cut one whole cucumber into pieces and add rose water to it. Blend them into puree and apply the paste on your face and neck. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes and rinse. Follow up with a moisturiser. Do this twice daily.
