You can’t help noticing how easily information about sunscreens and tanning has made its way to the top news. As summer is here and the beaches and pools are open for relaxation, everybody wants to get a tan, in spite of doctors’ warnings against the danger of getting skin cancer.
Nevertheless, if you do choose to go sunbathing for a lovely tan anyway, you wouldn’t want that tan to be uneven, that is, darker in some places and lighter in others.
Luckily there is a remedy for that as well. It is called vitamin C. Add antioxidants to that and you are ready to go.
Experts suggest that we should use a mask made of strawberries and honey that will work miracles on our skin. If you also take some vitamin C pills and anti-oxidant medication you will look radiant before you know it.
“Start off with this remedy by adding two ripe mashed strawberries into a spoon of fresh honey. Apply it as a face pack until it dries and wash off to reveal fairer and softer skin. Strawberry will act as a perfect tanning removal agent while the honey will help soothe the skin,” said Bharti Taneja, who is the director of Alps Group, told IANS.
However, if you are reluctant to using home remedies and feel they don’t work properly on you, there is always the option of a cream lotion or bleaching ointments that can help you remove the extra tan from your skin. These can be found at any pharmacy in town. There are also a few procedures available in beauty salons, such as fruit or vegetable bio-peel that will make your skin look brighter.
Whatever you do, you should be very careful with sun exposure. Dermatologists cannot stress the importance of protection against the harmful ultraviolet radiation enough. It is crucial that you never get out of the house without having applied generous amounts of sunscreen, even if you are not necessarily headed for the beach.
Try to choose sunblock which is at least SPF 30 and has PA++ protection as well. Remember that it is not easy to hide from sunrays, as they can penetrate through windows and don’t even think that cloudy and rainy weather does not expose you at all.
Moreover, steer clear of sunbathing between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sunrays are the most powerful. Remember to wear long sleeves if you have to get out of the house or office at that time, wear sunglasses and hats or caps, along with plenty of sunscreen with UVB and UVA protection.
