Remove Tan & Lighten Tanned Skin Pigmentation

There could be many reasons why your color has become dark. In order to make it light again, you would have to address the reason it has become dark in the first place. Pigmentation could be a reason why this has happened. In some cases, constant and repeated exposure to the sun can work towards slowly and gradually darkening your skin. You sometimes may not even realize that this is happening. In such cases, you would most likely only notice that your skin has changed color dramatically when someone else points it out to you. When this happens, you should work towards removing sun tan. The first step towards doing this would be to make it a habit to wear sunscreen at all times. It is important for you to know that applying sunscreen once and leaving it does not work properly or effectively. You should apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 at least about five to seven times a day, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. This will begin lightening your skin by simply stopping the darkening process.

To remove what tan you have already acquired, you can apply yogurt to which a few drops of lime juice have been added to your entire body everyday before bathing. This will take care of lightening the tan considerably. Exfoliation is also another procedure which will help to reduce darkness. You can make your own exfoliating scrub by mixing dried and powdered orange peels to yogurt. Both are mild bleaching agents and will help for tan removal. They will also help by removing dead cells from the surface of your skin to reveal fresh and glowing skin beneath. If you suffer from excessively dry skin, then you can use an exfoliating agent made with olive oil and enough sugar crystals added to it to make a pasty mix. This can be rubbed all over your body in circular motions till the sugar dissolves. It will function the same way as the yogurt based exfoliating scrub, only it will not dry out your skin. Instead, it will add to the hydration and richness of your skin. If you are suffering from a case of skin pigmentation, you should consult a dermatologist to figure out a proper course of treatment for the same. A dermatologist or a skin doctor will be able to guide you on the proper medicines that are to be take to take care of the problem.
