Sun tanning is a process whereby skin creates the brown –coloured pigment called melanin due to excessive exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun. We at My Health Guardian has come up with some easy home remedies to detan your sunburns. 

 

 How can you soothe your sun tanned skin

 If you have been out in the sun and your skin has turned red which stings as well, then you need to do immediate measures to relieve the burning sensation of the skin. Any kind of irritation in the body is acidic in nature and you got to turn it alkaline, which will help soothe the skin itch.

  1.  The products available at home that work well in soothing the skin are aloe vera gel, bruised peeled uncooked potato, grated cucumber and grated lauki. Cover the affected area for some time with any of it and let it rest for twenty minutes. Wash off with cold water, you will feel instant relief.
  2.  Another good way to baby your hurt skin is to put a cup of baking soda in bath water and slip in it to heal the sun tanned skin.
  3.  Rose water with a drop of lavender oil eases the sting out of your sun tanned skin. You can also try cold water splashes.
  4.  Make a compress with milk and use it on your skin to relieve the burning sensation.

 How can you remove sun tan?

 Your skin increases melanin production as defensive mechanism to fight the UV rays of the sun. Naturally, it will develop pigments or brown patches on the skin. Tanning doesn’t go off soon. This means you should get facial and bleaches done at your beauty parlour more regularly.

  1.  Mashed papaya helps de tan your skin. Pulp a cube sized fruit and add some honey to it. Apply it on your face and then wash it off.
  2.  Make a pack with fuller’s earth, lemon juice and calamine lotion. Use it every other day and your tanned skin will soon be history.
  3.  Use cod liver oil or Aloe Vera gel enriched with vitamin A and E to heal your skin.
