The sun’s rays could be harsh and brutal on the skin. Just a few moments in the scorching heat leads to the growth of a brown-colored pigment called melanin that can give a dark tanned look to the skin. However, various natural remedies are available to de-tan your skin.

Natural Methods To De-Tan Your Skin

1. Gram Flour

For de-tanning, mix gram flour with curd. Apply it all over, let it dry, and then wash it. You can do this twice a week.1

2. Turmeric Powder

Prepare a paste of turmeric powder and lime juice. This will help lighten your skin tone.2

3. Tomato Pulp

Mash the the tomatoes to a pulp and apply it on the skin. After a few minutes, wash it off with fresh water.3

4. Sugar Scrub

A good home remedy for tanning is to mix equal amounts of sugar granules and lemon juice. Apply this and scrub for 15 minutes. Keep the application for another 15 minutes. This will provide a natural bleached effect.

5. Mashed Papaya

Mashed ripe papaya also helps de-tan and cleanse your skin. If you want, you can also add honey to the pulp before applying it to your skin.4

6. Dried And Powdered Orange Peels
