Treat the Tan on Your hands and feet!

Skin care on face, we would definitely take care about the same… but what about the tan on your hands and feet? We women need to be beautiful from tip to toe… here are some quick yet easy to follow tips that would help you to get rid of that not needed tan on your hands and feet;

Exfoliating cream – Wet the tanned area on your hands with warm water. Apply the exfoliating cream on the area and rinse it using warm water again. The topmost layers of your skin, that has got the tan, will be removed leaving the lighter layer beneath.

Lemon juice – The acidic nature of lemon juice makes it a very good natural ingredient for fading or removing tanned skin. Apply lemon juice on the affected area. You can rub a cut lemon directly on the skin or squeeze the juice on a washcloth and use it to swab the tanned skin. Allow the lemon juice to get soaked up by your skin for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse and apply a moisturising lotion immediately. This would remove sun tan on by now.

Lemon, yoghurt and gram flour – Make a paste out of these three ingredients apply it on the affected area of your arm. You can rinse the mixture with warm water now. This is even better than using lemon alone. You need to follow this up with exfoliation of skin twice or thrice a day. The skin will keep on fading and you can stop when it reaches the desired colour.

Baking Soda – Make a paste of baking soda and use it to scrub the tanned areas of the body. This is very effective in fading the tan.

Sunscreen with high SPF – Using sunscreen with high SPF prevents your tan to increase its intensity. This is needed if you need to stay in the sun. You can try the other methods when at home but do not forget to apply high SPF sunscreen when out in the sun.

Cover your body with long clothing – Another good way to protect yourself from tanning is to cover your arms with full sleeves. This will naturally prevent your hands from getting tanned even more. You can use the abovementioned methods to remove sun tan.
