With summer already in, you must have started to smother yourself with sunscreen, cover from top to toe as you go out and take all the other necessary precautions to not get overexposed to the blazing sun. While all of this may help, we suggest you go back to the nature, for it has the solution to all your problems (or at least this one) and look more carefully inside your fridge.
Pankaj Agagrwal, a senior homeopath at a city skin and wellness clinic, shares invaluable easy-to-make and apply homemade face packs to help you prevent tanning this season.
Cucumber, rose water and lemon juice pack
One of the best home remedies for removing tanning is cucumber and lemon, which are also known as bleaching agents. Lemon gives you lightened skin whereas cucumber and rose water cools your skin. Mix the three together and apply with cotton. Wash with cold water after 10 minutes. Apply everyday for effective results.
Papaya and honey face pack
The enzymes present in papaya lighten your skin tone and your scars and blemishes. Honey moisturizes and softens the skin. Mix half a cup of mashed papaya with a tablespoon of honey. Apply and leave until it’s dry. Rinse with water.
