We are constantly worried about our skin tanning and uneven patches from sun exposure. Understanding the process of tanning is important to prevent it and treat it. So,instead of opting for the expensive de-tanning and fairness facials,try home remedies.
TANNING is your body’s way of protecting the internal organs from damage due to the sun’s harmful UV rays which is known to cause serious conditions like Cancer etc.
Most people run towards the fairness creams available in the market to hide or get rid away of tan but these creams usually have a good amount of bleach which is harmful for the skin and can damage the skin in the long run.
I have come up with a easy DIY TAN REMOVAL mask which has a couple of steps which works wonders for me. This skin treatment will give you instant results against tan and help you to get your natural color.
Lets see..


  •  1 tbsp gram flour ( besan).
  • 1 tbsp milk powder.
  • 1/2 tbsp honey.
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice.
  • 2 tbsp milk.


  • Mix all the above ingredients properly except the milk.


  • The mixture consistency is just like a cream.
  • Apply the mixture on to your face or the affected areas with the help of a brush or fingers.
  • After every 5 minutes coat the mask with milk with a brush possibly because that will be handy. Basically the mask has to be moist.( Keeping the mask moist helps the first layer of mask melt easily).
  • Make sure your mask doesn’t dry up.
  • Keep it for good 20 mins.
  • After 20 minutes, massage your face or the affected area for 5 minutes. ( You can even use some milk if you feel the mask has dried).
  • Finally wash it off with room temperature filtered water.

Note : As there are no hard ingredients like sugar or so,this cream will not harm your skin in any way. The consistency is creamy. It will gently remove the tan from your skin. Also can be used by sensitive skin people.


  • make sure you add a good sunscreen to your skincare routine which has good amount of UVA and UVB protection in it.
