how to remove body and face tan naturally, DIY Home remedies for "tan removal", 

Hello all..
Hope you all are celebrating your holidays and planning for the new year's bash! I'm spending the toughest phase of my life right now. Winters are at its peak, everyone is busy in celebrating for christmas, 31st and planning for new year, but what I am doing these days- Books in hands, lying on bed and blanket over me! Busy in studying for my exams in this cozy cozy winter. Oh-so boring kind of a life. Right? Well, life is full of ups and downs and everyone has to deal with it :P
Anyways, In these winters who don't like to sit in the warm and vibrant sunlight and want to spend as much time as they can over there. It gives immense pleasure to sit in sunlight and take a sun bath but what we forget about is- the continue exposure of the face and other body parts in the sun which results in "the sun tan". Removing the tan is not a quick process and you have to be patient to completely get rid of it. Here I'm sharing some home remedies to remove the tan from your face and other body parts using all natural ingredients which you can find out easily in your kitchen. I mostly prefer going natural way because I feel it is the best option, natural ingredients will soothe and nourish your skin and will help remove your tan in a gentle manner.

Never forget to apply a sunscreen

The foremost thing you all must do is- Make sunscreen your best friend. We all know that prevention is always better then the cure. Do not forget to apply a sunscreen of good spf every time you step out of the home. It will protect your skin from the harmful radiations coming out of the sun. Choose the sunscreen which best suits you depending upon your skin type.

Exfoliate, Exfoliate and Exfoliate

Exfoliation is the key to remove tan faster. Make a scrub with sugar+honey+almond oil and a few drops of lemon. And rub gently over your skin. Sugar granules will provide proper exfoliation, honey and almond oil will provide a moisture and maintain the PH balance of your skin. This scrub will not only remove the dead cells and tanning from your skin but also make you skin soft supple and breathable.

Use Lemons to remove tan

Lemons have the acidic property in them which helps in removing tan. Cut a lemon and directly rub it onto your skin for 5-10 mins. Leave it on for 15 minutes and either wash off or exfoliate using the sugar scrub. The regular usage will help removing the tan efficiently from your skin. 

Chickpea/gram flour or "besan"

Besan has been used for ages to lighten and brighten the skin. Even the brides use chickpea flour mixed with turmeric powder in their wedding day rituals. Take two tablespoons of chickpea flour and and a tablespoon of curd in it. Add a pinch of turmeric powder and a few drops of lemon. Apply this face pack to your face and other parts of body, leave it on for 15 minutes and wash off with cold water. This is my HG face pack to remove tan and I've been using this pack since 4-5 years. This is the tried and tested face pack and I use this regularly which helps remove the tan efficiently and faster.

Drink lots of water

Last but not the least drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated and toxin free. Water plays a vital role in digestion,blood circulation and absorption of nutrients. Just like all other organs, our skin is also made up of cells which need water to function. when our skin cells are not sufficiently hydrated, the appearance of our  skin suffers, which results in looking older than our years. So drink a lot of water to keep yourself healthy looking and from within.
