If you thought that you can only get a tan in summer then you are wrong. Most of us forget to use sunscreen during other seasons of the year and this leads to a skin tan. A tan during seasons other than summer is as bad as a summer tan.
If you have a seasonal or an off season tan then here are a few home remedies to help you get rid it.
Baking soda is an effective agent in helping to get rid of tan lines. Add 2 to 3 spoons of baking soda to a few mugs of water and massage this paste on the parts of your body that are tanned. You can pour the rest of the water into your bath water and immerse your body in the water. Do this daily for 10 days and you will be able to get rid of your tan lines with minimal effort.
Using Aloe Vera will also help to get rid of tan lines. You can use any Aloe Vera based product on your skin or rub the natural plant extract on your skin to get rid of the tan lines. Massage the paste or the gel directly into your skin on the affected parts of your body; do not wash it off.
Massaging your skin at night and letting the gel stay on your skin while you sleep will help to get rid of the tan lines in a few days. Not only will the gel get rid of the tan it will also nourish your skin and make it soft. Thus using the natural plant extract or gel will help you to rejuvenate your skin and make it soft and supple; it will also promote healthy cell regeneration.
A temporary solution to getting rid of the tan lines would be to camouflage it. Doing this is not difficult. All you need it a bronzing lotion or powder and sweep it all over your body. A shade that is darker than your natural skin tone will help you to effectively hide the tan lines.
When your skin gets tanned the surface layers of the skin die and they need to be gently exfoliated so that new skin cells can grow and resurface. You can initiate the cell regeneration process by exfoliating your skin and home. Soak yourself in a hot bath and rub your skin gently so that the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin get exfoliated.
See, getting rid of a skin tan is not difficult so don’t worry too much about it.
