There are several anti-tan creams and lotions available in the market, which boast of treating severe tans. However, what we do not know is that the chemicals present in them may cause harm to our skin. So, using natural Anti-Tan Products is a smart choice.



We bring to you a few homemade natural masks, which will surely help you in getting rid of that tan easily. Take a look.

  1. Cucumber, rose water and lemon pack

Cucumber and lemon are the best bleaching agents and therefore, are quite effective in treating tanned skin. Lemon has vitamin C and citric acid, both of which are known for lightening the skin complexion. Also, vitamin C acts on dark and ageing spots, thus making your skin look younger. Cucumber, on the other hand, hydrates the skin due to its high water content. Water keeps the skin supple and nourished. The third ingredient, rose water, helps in healing rashes and inflammation, owing to its soothing properties. 

To treat sun tan, take a teaspoon of rose water, lemon juice and cucumber juice each and mix well. Apply it on the affected area and let it stay until it dries. Later wash off with tap water. Do not forget to apply a high SPF sunscreen lotion if you step out in the sun. Apply this home remedy regularly for quick results.

  1. Yogurt and orange juice mask

Yogurt is a natural bleaching agent and also keeps the skin moisturized and soft. While orange is a rich source of vitamin C. It is this vitamin C which tightens the skin and provides a natural glow. It helps in regeneration of new skin tissues as well. It also contains collagen, which delays the process of ageing.

To make a yogurt and orange pack, add one tablespoon of yogurt to one spoon of orange juice. Mix well and then, apply it on the tanned area.  Let it stay for about half an hour.  Later wash your face with normal water. Do it often to get rid of tan.

  1. Papaya and honey pack

This pack is not only good for skin but is also mouth-watering. The enzymes present in papaya help in removing harsh tans on the skin. Besides, these enzymes possess skin-lightening properties as well. Owing to these qualities, papaya is extremely helpful in reducing marks and blemishes. While honey has anti-bacterial properties. It kills all the bad bacteria, which lead to irritation, inflammation and blemishes. It further softens the skin, providing it complete nourishment.

To make this pack, take half cup of mashed papaya. Add about one tablespoon of honey to it and mix thoroughly. Apply this mask on the affected area and leave it until it dries. Later rinse with water.

  1. Pineapple and honey mask

This tropical fruit is a must ingredient in several desserts as it gives a citrus punch to the otherwise sweet delicacies. However, it is great for skin too. Pineapple has enzymes, which help in removing dead skin cells from the affected area, thus speeding up the process of healing. It is a powerhouse of vitamin C and antioxidants that help in skin lightening and keeping ageing signs at bay. Honey is definitely a great moisturizing agent for skin. When both are mixed together, they make a great mask to treat harsh tans.

Add two spoons of pineapple pulp to one spoon of honey. Mix well and then, apply it on the tanned skin. Let it stay for about five minutes and then, rinse well. Do it regularly for best results.

  1. Saffron and cream pack

Both saffron and cream are skin lightening agents. However, cream is a good nourisher as well. To make a mask, soak a few strands of saffron in three spoons of cream overnight. In the morning, wash your face and then, apply this pack on the affected area. Leave it for about 15 minutes. Later, wash with normal water. Finish it with a good moisturizer.
