Summers arrive with a great zeal; the beach season gets us all excited. But enjoyment in the summer season is accompanied with the very hard to remove sun tan. The skin, when exposed to the scorching sun for long hours, gets tanned. Most of the products in the market prove to be a failure when it comes to removal. But now, no need to worry because these very easy home remedies, made with a combination of various tan removing agents, will help you remove your tan to a great extent in 30 minutes or less!
Fuller’s earth and rose water
The combination of fuller’s earth (Multani mitti) and rose water will help you achieve a lighter skin tone in just 30 minutes. Fuller’s earth and rose water, when combined, will give a soothing effect to your skin and the skin will cool down resulting in tan removal. Fuller’s earth also tightens the skin and gives it a glowy and youthful charm.
Gram flour, curd and turmeric
When gram flour, curd and turmeric are mixed together, the resultant combination becomes the age- old traditional secret behind the beautiful skin. Mixing the 3 ingredients into the ratio of 2:3:1 will help you make a batter that can be used as a paste cum scrub to get rid of hard tan. Gram flour will help the paste to get a texture suitable for scrubbing and the cooling property of curd will let the skin feel soothed. Turmeric, on the other hand, will help your skin glow.
Aloe vera gel
Aloe vera stem gel can cause wonders for your skin. It can be found very easily in your garden itself. If you have aloe vera planted then the only thing you have to do is to cut a small part of the stem and flip it open. Inside the stem, you will find the transparent gel; applying it all over your tanned area and leaving it for 20-25 minutes will provide you instant results.
In 9th grade, we were taught about the bleaching properties of potatoes. Now it is the time for us to finally bring this knowledge to some use. The only thing we need to do is to mash the potato properly, add 1 squeezed lemon along with some honey and apply all over the tanned area. Within 25 minutes, you can see visible results.
Tomato is also a saviour when it comes to removal of the suntan. Take 1 full tomato and cut into two halves. Now start rubbing it all over the tanned area and let the gel dry for at least 20 minutes. Wash off the product with cold water and see the difference.
Milk and honey
The combination of milk and honey will never fail in the removal of tan. Milk and honey both are considered as the most important skin care ingredients. 1 spoon of honey, a few drops of milk along with the juice of a lemon will help you remove your hard-hit sun tan.
Cucumber and tomato pack

The oatmeal scrub is also a technique to remove the hard tan from your body. All you need to do is to take some oats and add some milk to it.

It will let your skin exfoliate and help you remove all the tan in no time.
