The third sun tanning treatment that you can use is tomato juice and oat meal. Take some tomato juice or puree and mix it with a half a cup of oat meal. Avoid making the mixture too thick as it will not spread evenly over your skin. Once the mixture is ready apply it to your skin and let it remain like that for about twenty minutes. Once twenty minutes are up rinse it off thoroughly with cold water. The fourth remedy that you can try (if you do not want to consider the above) involves the use of various fruit juices. Take three spoons of pineapple juice, three spoons of pumpkin juice, three spoons of papaya juice and some honey and mix all these ingredients together. When it forms a paste, apply the mixture to your skin and let it set for about a half hour. Wash it off with warm water afterward.  

If any of these remedies do not work for you or you do not feel the need to try them out then another alternative the use of Hydroquinone. It is a commonly used topical agent for the purpose of reducing skin pigmentation. It is useful because it inhibits the action of tyrosinase and hence blocks a big step in the production of melanin (the color pigment cells that are responsible for the tanning) by the skin. Hydroquinone is also used in conjunction with other skin lightening agents like alpha- hydoxy acids in order to help reduce the effect of the tan.
