As there is an increase in the penetration of harmful UV rays on the Earth's surface, our skin is prone to a lot of tanning. Be it men or women, being exposed to direct sunlight for a long time can cause sunburns and tanning on the skin. How can this be avoided?
Here are a few tips on how you can prevent tanning of your skin.
The easiest and convenient way of avoiding tanning is to cover yourself. Be it a scarf or a pair of sun protection gloves; ensure you cover the skin that is directly exposed to sunlight.
When you return home after a long day's work, make sure you wash and scrub your body properly. This will rejuvenate your mood as well as help in removing dead skin and tanning. Do not bleach your skin because by doing so, your skin is prone to tanning faster than the skin that is not bleached.
Rose water, milk, potato, tomato and lemon are a few natural cleansers that can help in reducing the tan. You use them on alternative days for best results.
Waxing does not only benefit you of a ‘hair-free' skin, but also helps in removing the tan and dirt. This does not help in removing facial tan but does wonders on your legs and hands.
By applying face packs once a week, you are cooling your body as well as removing the tan off your face. Fuller's earth and other facial masks are totally worth the money you pay.
