As the summer season arrives, we often find ourselves basking under the warm sun, enjoying outdoor activities, and acquiring that coveted summer tan. While a sun-kissed glow can enhance our appearance, sometimes the tan can be stubborn and refuse to fade away.
If you're looking to reclaim your natural complexion and bid farewell to that lingering tan, this blog is here to help. We'll explore effective methods and natural skin care products to remove stubborn summer tan, revealing your skin's true radiance.
1. Exfoliation for the Win
Exfoliation is a crucial step in removing a stubborn sun tan. Regular exfoliation helps to slough off dead skin cells, which can be the main culprits behind the tanned appearance. You can use an emulsifying body polish like Glitter Like Gold which through its enzymatic exfoliation properties effectively breaks down the keratin in the skin's upper layers, leaving skin soft, supple and bright. Gently massage it with water in circular motions on damp skin, paying extra attention to areas with excessive tan. Repeat this process twice a week to witness visible results.
2. Lemon Juice and Honey
Lemon juice has natural bleaching properties that can help lighten the skin, while honey helps moisturize and nourish it. Create a mixture by combining some lemon juice and honey with Raw Beauty’s brightening ubtan Kick Ass. Apply it to the affected areas and leave it on for about 15 minutes before rinsing it off. Remember to avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight while using lemon juice, as it can make your skin more sensitive to UV rays.
3. Aloe Vera Magic
Aloe vera is a wonder plant with numerous benefits for the skin. Its soothing properties can aid in reducing the appearance of tan lines and promoting skin healing. Our face and body mist Aloe Vera Hyrosol helps to tighten and tone the skin, along with leaving it calmed. Regular application will gradually lighten the tan and leave your skin feeling refreshed.
4. Cucumber Cooling Effect
Cucumber is known for its cooling and soothing properties, making it an excellent choice for combating stubborn tan. Our calming & hydrating face mask Cool kid gently hydrates the skin, leaving it soft to the touch. The cucumber in it will provide relief from sunburn and gradually fade the tan, leaving your skin refreshed and rejuvenated.
5. Sunscreen Is Your Best Friend
Prevention is better than cure, and this applies to tanning as well. Before stepping out into the sun, make sure to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF. Regularly reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially if you are swimming or outdoors. This will help prevent further tanning and protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
While a summer tan can be beautiful, it's understandable if you want to remove it after a while. By incorporating these natural remedies and practices into your skincare routine, you can effectively reduce and remove stubborn summer tan. Remember, patience and consistency are key.
Embrace your skin's natural beauty, protect it from the sun, and enjoy healthy and radiant skin all year round.
