5 Face Masks to Remove Skin Tan - How to Reduce Sunburn, Redness and Skin Tan

Easy homemade face masks to remove skin tan and lighten skin tone. These face masks will leave your skin feeling hydrated, fresh and luminous. face masks, natural skin shield, natural sunscreen, skin exfoliating, exfoliating agent

Long periods of sun exposure can not only result in dull, dehydrated skin but also rob it of its luster and shine. The harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun can make skin look darker than usual. If you would like to get back the original color and luster of your skin, try these five face masks.

1. Tomato Lemon Mask

Studies have shown that tomatoes have unique properties that help protect the skin from sunburn. Tomatoes contain lycopene, which helps prevent sagging skin while also acting as a natural skin shield against harmful sun rays. Lemon acts as a natural skin bleach which gently exfoliates the skin. To prepare this mask, simply blend one tomato with a tablespoon of lemon juice to make a fine fluid consistency. You could mix this fluid with any flour to give it a thicker consistency for easier application. Apply the mixture to affected parts of the skin, leave on for 20 minutes and rinse off with tepid water.

2. Milk Gram flour Mask

Milk contains lactic acid, which is a gentle exfoliating agent that also lightens skin. Milk is also high in its moisture content, which makes it very soothing on the skin. Gram flour has natural skin whitening properties and shields the skin against the sun. To prepare the mask mix in 2 tablespoons of gram flour with 2 tablespoons of whole milk. Apply on affected parts of the skin, and leave on for 20 minutes to half an hour and rinse off with cold water.

3. Yoghurt Honey Mask

Yoghurt is not only rich in lactic acid - which is a great skin exfoliating agent - but also has cooling effects on the skin. It has a tendency to extract excess heat from the skin and hence is great for sunburns and skin tan, burning and redness. Honey is a natural skin moisturizer, is anti-bacterial and soothes the skin as well. To prepare this mask, combine 2 tablespoons of plain, unflavored yoghurt with 1 teaspoon of honey. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water followed by cold water.

4. Cream Turmeric Mask

The cream obtained from the top of boiled milk is extremely moisturizing and acts as a gentle scrub as well. Turmeric is a natural skin antiseptic and helps remove skin tan as well as lighten the skin. To prepare the mask, mix in 2 teaspoons of cream with a pinch of turmeric. If you have an oily skin, avoid cream as it can make skin oilier. Substitute cream with yoghurt instead. Apply and leave the mask on for 20 minutes. Wash with cold water.

5. Orange Peel Yoghurt Mask

Orange peels, like tomatoes, have natural sunscreen properties. Yoghurt, as mentioned before, has lactic acid which aids cell renewal and exfoliation. Grate the orange peel and dry in shade. Grind 2 tablespoons of the orange peel with 1 tablespoon of plain, unflavored yoghurt. Apply the mask and leave on for 30 minutes to an hour and wash with cold water.

When applying these masks, ensure that you do not venture out into the sun right afterwards. Since these masks aid in skin exfoliation, they increase the skin’s photosensitivity to the sun. Hence, it is best to apply the masks at night so the skin gets ample time to recover and heal.
