New Delhi: Summers here are in full splendor, and for those who love sunshine and adventure in the sun, the fear of tanning is also a concern. It can have a physical impact on the skin and also affect confidence and self-esteem.

The fear of tanning forces you to avoid going out? Tanning is inevitable, but you can easily eliminate tan at home with a few simple ingredients. Try these simple Ayurvedic ways to get rid of tan at home outlined by Shreedha Singh, co-founder of TAC – The Ayurveda Co.

Ayurvedic body mask: This Ayurvedic body mask requires two teaspoons of triphala churna, a pinch of turmeric, a teaspoon of besan and a few drops of rose water. Apply this combination to the affected tanned area and wash off after 15 minutes.

Coffee body scrub: Add one or two teaspoons of almond or coconut oil, half a teaspoon of sugar and a few drops of lemon juice to a tablespoon of filter coffee (dry powder or filtrate). After carefully mixing the ingredients, gently massage the tanned parts of your body. Rinse it off after a while and then pat it dry. The best results come from using it twice a week.

Papaya mask: Papaya is one of the best ingredients for skin care. The fruit contains enzymes that help whiten and detan the skin. Additionally, it helps treat skin ulcers and can be beneficial in removing tan from the body.

Mix a tablespoon of honey and half-ripe papaya pulp in a bowl. Then, apply it gently on the tanned areas and massage it in for ten minutes. Leave to rest for another 20 minutes. After washing with cold water, apply a mild moisturizer. Use this mask at least twice a week for quick results.

Nalpamaradithailam: Regular body oil with Ayurvedic oil “NalpamaradiThailam” lightening and brightening helps to detan and keep the body supple and nourished.

Turmeric and besan pack: Mix two teaspoons of besan, one teaspoon of milk or curd and one teaspoon of turmeric powder to make a thick pack. Apply the paste to your sun-affected skin gently and evenly for 30 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.

Banana and honey mask: Mash overripe bananas with a spoonful of honey, a few drops of milk and malai. This mixture lightened the skin when applied to tanned body parts and rinsed off after 15 minutes.

Coconut milk: This detanner is completely natural and easily accessible. Vitamin C and lactic acid are abundant in coconut milk, which helps remove tan from the skin effectively. Moreover, it is very moisturizing and nourishing, which also keeps your skin hydrated. To use, soak a cotton ball in fresh organic coconut milk. Apply it evenly on the face and neck and let it soak into the skin for 15 minutes. Wash it with normal water.

Masoor dal, aloe vera and tomato pack: Make a paste with aloe vera puree, tomato paste and lentils. Spread the paste on the tanned areas of your body, leave for thirty minutes, then rinse. Apply this mask at least twice a week for best results.

Rice flour body scrub: Take 1-2 tablespoons of rice flour and mix it with raw milk. Apply the mixture by mixing it and massaging it gently with your fingertips on the face, neck and other areas of the body prone to tan. After leaving it on for twenty minutes, rinse it off with normal water. Apply this homemade scrub two or three times a week to get rid of the tan naturally.

Apply sunscreen: Maintain your skin care regimen as the tan takes about a month or two to fade. To avoid continuing to tan, frequently apply sunscreen to your body. Find out which sunscreen is best for you:
