Forget the Monsoon Sun -Tan!

Reasons like increasing levels of dust and pollution, increased stress levels when combined together hasten the ageing process and thus make us lose faith in chemical beauty products. They act as a deterrent, compelling many of us to look for a replacement and look for less harmful alternatives.

Switching over to organic products is a much less damaging process than sticking by the inorganic counterparts the market is flooded with. The inorganic ones may look very luring with promise to bring instant results but may do more harm than good to the skin. The natural ones on the other hand may let their results be visible only after a certain period of usage but they are much more beneficial in the long run.

Since the sun is playing hide and seek these monsoons, let’s find out some easy ways to get rid of the sun tan with these natural remedies that can be easily made at home. They will help repair the affected cells, revive sunburnt skin and make it glow as well.

Remedy 1

Things required- Tomato and lemon juice

Take a couple of tomatoes, blend them into a puree and mix four tablespoons of lemon juice in it. Apply it on the tanned areas and wash it off with water after a while or around twenty minutes.

Remedy 2

Things required- Sandalwood powder and tender coconut water

Take the powder and make it into a paste with the help of tender coconut water. Apply it on the tanned skin and wash it off with water after a while. You may replace coconut water with rose water or use the juice of cucumber instead.

Remedy 3

Things required- Organically grown Aloe Vera

Taken a broken Aloe vera leaf and rub it directly onto the tanned skin. Wash it off with water after a while. You may also use its fresh juice as one of the primary ingredients in your home made pack if you do not wish to use it directly.

P.S- For those who are always on the go and would like to try off shelf products, here are my quick recommendations.
