    Re: how to remove tan on hands and face at home

    Hi Gita,

    Here's the tips to remove tan!!


    Coconut water works magic for your skin inside out. Take the white fleshy part of green coconut, work it into a paste in a grinder and keep it on for 15 minutes. It has natural whitening properties and will un-tan you instantly.

    Sandalwood works wonders at keeping your Skin fair and clean. Just add 4 drops of sandalwood oil to 2tsp of sandalwood paste and use it as a face mask. To ensure that the paste of high quality, always make your own by rubbing real sandalwood on a stone slab instead of buying sandalwood powder.

    For tanned hands, take a handful of coarse sugar( large grains) mixed with lemon juice. Mix them just before use, apply on the hands and keep rubbing till the sugar dissolves and leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off.

    Hope It Helps!!

    Re: how to remove tan on hands and face at home

    Dear Gita,

    Here are some tips to remove tan.

    Aloe vera gel is an excellent way to reduce the discoloration of your tanned skin. This method also works very quickly. Try and get leaves of the plant and press them for fresh gel. This is the best way to use aloe in its natural form. However, if you use aloe vera gel that comes in a tube from a store, this will also work equally well. Make it a point to apply this overnight. This is the best thing to do, since using aloe vera gel and going out in the sun can make your skin darker. Try these remedies and you can see results within a week.


    • Use a face pack consisting of cucumber juice, lemon juice and some rose water or you can also try a face mask with honey and lemon juice. These face packs or face masks have to be used for some time, at least for a week for noticeable results.
    • Potato juice also is an effective treatment against Sun tan. A regular application of the juice yields positive results. Potato is also effective against pimples and blackheads make it an ideal ingredient for oily skin.
    • Make a paste using Haldi (Turmeric) with a little raw milk and lemon juice. Apply it on the skin, it will help in removing a tan.
    • Apply a paste of fresh ground mint leaves and leave it for about 20 minutes. Wash with cold water, continue for 15 days.
    • Try rubbing lemon juice on your skin. Then mix aloe juice with ˝ the amount of vitamin E. Vitamin E is a good moisturizer. Dab this on the tan especially if it is a sun tan.
    • Rubbing the inside of a slice of watermelon is good for lightening tanned skin.
    • Buttermilk is another proven recipe to fade the sun tan. Wash you face with Buttermilk regularly for a few days and you would notice the difference. A natural astringent it tones the skin and is ideal for oily to combination skin.
    • Almonds are another effective but slightly costly way of ensuring lighter tan free skin. Soak 2-3 almonds overnight in cold milk, peel the skin and make a paste out of these. Apply on skin, leave for some time and wash it off. The results are miraculous.
    • You can also apply buttermilk on your skin twice daily, for about 20 minutes each time. This will cool the skin and help revitalize.
    • Apply dosa batter on the tanned areas and leave until it dries. Rinse it with coldwater and dab rosewater on the affected areas for glowing and smooth skin.

    Gita, try coconut milk. Since it helps lock the moisture within your skin, it will help nourish the skin and get you back to your original complexion. I have a lot of weddings coming up and have been using coconut milk for a while. I cleanse, tone and moisturize with coconut milk before I go to bed. Let me know how your experience was.
