With the bright sun in our eyes and sand in our hair, we are at the peak of summer enjoyment, but the fun comes to a halt when you come back home to a wicked tan.  A tan can be an unpleasant experience that makes you never want to go back to the beach, but there are many ways to remove it.

There are many ways one can deal with a tan by using sun protection and de-tanning products, but why prefer something store-bought when you have the same recipes made with ingredients hidden in your fridge or cabinet.  In addition, to help you get rid of the tan, these natural recipes will also help you retain that summer glow.

So let's dive straight into some homemade tan removal recipes.

Turmeric, coconut oil, and sandalwood

Sandalwood and turmeric soothe the skin while coconut oil hydrates it. Collectively, they make for one of the best home remedies for tanned skin.

How to make it and use it:

  • Make a mixture by adding 2 tablespoons of sandalwood powder, 1/2 cup of coconut oil, and turmeric.
  • Apply it to your tanned skin and leave it on for 30 minutes.
  • Then wash it off with water.

Also try: Amrutam's Chandan which work as a great coolant that can soothe and heal sunburns, acne, rashes, sores, and ulcers.

Honey and papaya

This combo is a very well-known tan removal remedy. The Papaya exfoliates the skin while the honey moisturizes the skin.

How to make it and use it:

  • Take 5 cubes of papaya and add to it 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Mash the papaya and mix until a smooth paste is formed.
  • Use this paste on your tanned skin and leave it on for 30 minutes.
  • Then wash it off with water.

Yogurt and tomato

Yogurt helps in moisturizing and brightening the skin while the vitamin C and antioxidants in the tomatoes promote the growth of collagen.

How to make it and use it:

  • Peel the skin of the tomatoes and blend it with 2 tablespoons of yogurt till a fine paste is formed. 
  • Apply it to your tanned skin and leave it on for 30 minutes.
  • Then wash it off with water.

Fact: Ultraviolet radiation from the sun and artificial sources from tanning beds are known to be cancer-causing.

Oatmeal and buttermilk

The buttermilk contains lactic acid that softens the skin while the oatmeal cleanses and exfoliates.

How to make it and use it:

  • Soak 2-3 teaspoons of oats in 1/2 cup of water for 5-10 minutes.
  • Further, add 3 teaspoons of buttermilk and blend it to form a paste
  • Use this paste on your tanned skin and leave it on for 30 minutes.
  • Then wash it off with water.

And for a extra layer of protection you can always rely on Amrutam's Charcoal Face Mask and Aloe Vera Gel.

We hope that this summer you Sin(cerely) follow the needed, if not it might Cos a Tan.

Amrutam Face Clean Up Reviews

Currently on my second bottle and happy with how this product has kept acne & breakouts in check. It doesn't leave the skin too dry and also doubles as a face mask.

Juhi Bhatt

Amrutam face clean up works great on any skin type, it has helped me keep my skin inflammation in check, helps with acne and clear the open pores. Continuous usage has helped lighten the pigmentation and scars as well. I have recommended the face clean up to many people and they have all loved it!!

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
