We just celebrated Pohela Boishakh, the first day of Bengali New Year and the most popular festival in the Bengali calendar, last week. Most of the Bangalis participated in the outdoor event, braving the burning sun and dust in the air. And after the summer fun, you got burned and now you are looking for remedies for sun tanned skin.
Here are three quick and natural remedies for your tanned skin:
As lemon has its own natural bleaching properties, simply apply some fresh lemon juice on the affected skin area and allow it to dry before washing. To get maximum benefit, add some sugar. For quick result, apply this twice a week.
Raw potato works as natural bleach as well and also helps soothe sunburn. Make paste of raw potato and apply it all over the affected skin area. Let it dry for 30 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.
Cucumber juice also helps eliminate a sun tan. Mix two tablespoons of cucumber juice, one tablespoon of lime juice and a pinch of turmeric and apply on your tanned skin. Leave it for 30 minutes and then wash it off with water.
