Got Tanned During Summer Vacation? Here Are 3 Simple DIY Face Packs To Get Brighter and Glowing Skin
The monsoon season has ushered into most parts of country, bringing a great respite from scorching sun. We love summers too. It is that time of the year, where we get to strut out in shorts, dress up in floral designs, indulge in various mango varieties to chilling out with a glass of lemonade by the beach.
However, getting exposed to harsh sun rays frequently can also lead to skin tan. A little tan may give you a beautiful golden look making you gorgeous but over discolouration can affect the skin health. If you do not pay attention, your tanned skin may look dull, dry, parched and dark. It usually occurs when your skin is exposed to the sun's rays frequently for a longer duration.
This rainy season, let us look at the ways to do away with that pesky tan and glow instantly.
According to studies, sun rays can induce photodamage to skin cells resulting in faster skin ageing, causing your skin to lose its natural radiance and leaving it vulnerable to damage. A mild to moderate tan almost takes 10-15 days to start fading and around a month or two to disappear completely. So, one must make haste of using appropriate treatment or employing home remedies to help it fade fast.
While numerous beauty products are claiming to remove tan most effectively and naturally, if you want to try the natural way sans any chemicals and side effects, fret not, we are here to help. We bring you natural home remedies to come to your rescue in the form of DIY tan removal face packs.
These homemade face pack recipes will not only help fade your stubborn tan but also enhance skin texture and bestow you with glowing rejuvenated skin.
DIY Natural Anti-Tan Face Packs
Besan And Turmeric Face Pack
1 tbsp of besan
1 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp of yoghurt
Pinch of turmeric powder
Mix all the components to form a uniform paste
Apply this mixture all over your face and neck in circular strokes
Leave it on for 30-40 minutes to dry up completely
Wash it off with a wet sponge and water
Why Does It Work?
The dynamic duo of besan and rice flour are prized for their exfoliative traits that not only help diminish tan and lighten the skin tone but also regulate sebum production and prevent pimples. The abundance of curcumin in turmeric delays the ageing signs, and treats pigmentation and even skin tone. Whereas the presence of lactic acid and other alpha hydroxy acids in yoghurt, plays a significant role in moisturising and nourishing the skin, making it soft, smooth and glowing. Additionally, the mild bleaching trait of yoghurt helps in treating skin discolouration and age spots.
Milk Powder And Lemon Juice Face Pack
2 tbsp of milk powder
1-2 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tbsp of honey
1 tsp of sugar
Blend the ingredients to get a coarse paste
Apply it to your face while slowly massaging every portion for 5 seconds
Let it stay for 20 minutes
Rinse your face with cool water
Why Does It Work?
Being a rich source of lactic acid, milk powder acts as a cleanser and delivers long-lasting nourishment to dry and rough skin. It helps fade blemishes, spots, and hyperpigmentation and prevents acne flare-ups. While the nourishing properties of honey moisturise the skin and bequeath a natural glow to it, lemon showcasing antioxidant essence helps diminish excessive melanin production while lightening skin tone. The addition of sugar exfoliates the skin and scourges away dead cells, making it smooth, soft and glowing.
Orange Peel And Malai Face Pack
2 tbsp of orange peel powder
1 tbsp papaya juice

2 tbsp potato juice
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl into a smooth gooey paste
Massage the mixture on your face for 5-10 minutes

The presence of active constituent hesperidin and antioxidants in orange peel powder helps reduce melanin production in the skin, prevent free radical damage and protect the skin from harsh environmental stressors. The strong bleaching property of potato lightens skin tone, besides fading fine lines, wrinkles, and discolouration. While papaya pulp unclogs the pores, treats acne and pimples, and reduces excess oil production, malai nourishes and moisturises the skin and bestows a natural, luminant glow.
