How to Get Rid of Suntan skin fast and overnight – The Natural Ways

Do you love vacations around the beach front, who doesn’t. What about the summer vacations of kids when they have ample time for fun and play. Who doesn’t love that. But an outcome of all this fun and frolic out in the sun is a Tan.

What is Tan or Suntan?

Developing a suntan is the skin’s mechanism of protecting itself from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun.

When exposed to UV radiation from the sun for a period of time, the skin increases the production of melanin to avoid further skin damage. The increase in melanin, however, darkens the skin tone within two days of exposure.

In addition, overexposure to ultraviolet radiation (sun-tanning) tends to cause your skin to age more quickly. It makes the skin, dry, wrinkled, and freckled over time.

We Indians are safer in this department to our counterparts in US or other cold countries where the skin tone is white as they are more prone to developing skin cancer due to over exposure to sun, and India being a naturally hot climate country has its residents who sport a wheatish skin which produces ample melanine to counter the bad effects of exposure to sun rays.

We generally tend to gravitate towards having a fairer skin and have definitely tried over time over the counter medication and also so called fairness creams, but there are definite natural ways to get rid of suntan.

How to Get Rid of a Suntan skin fast and overnight:

Given below are safe and natural cures for suntan.

1)  Coconut Water: Coconut water is an abundant and cheap source to get rid of suntan and also your thirst. One should apply coconut water to the affected area and leave it on for 30 minutes, then wash it off with clean, cold water to reveal a naturally fair looking skin.Coconut WaterImage credits: cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo

The use of fresh coconut water on skin is a simple, yet effective natural cure for a suntan.

2)  Tomato Juice and Yogurt: Why? Because, citrus fruits contain ascorbic acid which has high antioxidant properties that help fade the tan and Yogurt contains lactic acid that lightens the tan.

                     To use combine tomato juice with equal parts yogurt and apply to affected skin. Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse with clean, cool water.

 3) Orange juice:  I love to drink orange juice, but when recently one of my friends told me she uses it to get rid of suntan I was in a shock so tried it by applying to the to the affected area. This remedy is useful in eliminating a suntan because it contains natural alphahydroxy acids.Orange juiceImage credits: cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo

4) Cucumber with yoghurt: Blend half a cucumber in a blender along with an equal amount of yogurt then add a few drops of rose water, and sandalwood powder to form a paste. Apply to the affected area and leave on for at least 30 minutes then rinse with clean, cool water. Repeat this procedure daily until your sunburn is gone.

Apart from treating a suntan, cucumber also has a cooling effect on the skin.

5) Lemon and Honey: Take honey and mix it with some lemon juice, apply it on the affected area, it is one of the best anti tan packs.

6) Milk and Gram Flour (Besan): This is one of the oldest natural and homemade remedy to get rid of tan. Just mix gram flour and milk and form a thick paste. Use this while bathing as soap and scrub the body to get rid of tan.

7) Aloe Vera gel: It is a perfect remedy; which will make your complexion fair in less than a week if applied regularly. But make sure that you have to use sunscreen while going out in sun as it makes your skin photosynthetic and can bring tanning if used without sunscreen.Aloe Vera GelImage credits: cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo

  12. Crystal says:

    Wow. I had no idea that people actually tried to get whiter!!! I’m super white, and I HATE it! I’ve tried everything to tan, but I just burn and turn back to white again. I really had no idea that the opposite would be an issue for anyone. Everyone I’ve ever known wants that beautiful bronze tan, not white skin. Funny how different parts of the world want different things in the beauty department.

  15. Lee says:

    Crystal, its not that we want to be pale. My face has tanned in such a way that I now look like I have a mask. People stop me in the grocery store to tell me my makeup is messed up, but im not wearing any. We are talking about bad suntans, not the good all over golden skin type. 🙂

  16. Rakib says:

    Hi altruists,
    So far, I have applied all the ways recommended by beauty experts but unfortunately nothing suits me for suntan. Some of dermatologists already have suggested me to adopt laser treatment.
    But, I am afraid of that.
    Could you please help me to give your suggestions?

    I wore watch. In that part I have a sun tan . what’s the solution to reduce a sun tan

  21. Manvi says:

    Those who all are unable to fade away their tan first identify it is your tan or your natural skin color. If it is your tan than I suggest you should live in a very cold place like Himachal Pradesh (very cold region in my country) and try applying aloe vera gel regularly before going to sleep, let it be on your skin overnight. You should try applying a sunscreem. I was also very very dark in my teenage. I went Himachal Pradesh for job opportunities when I came back to my home town Jaipur my brother kept me saying “How you become paler”. To maintain my skin color I use sunscreem everyday.

  22. Shameema says:

    Hellow good people, I was at the beach for about 8 hours, although I applied sunblock I still became quiet tanned, esp my face. I tried something I read: I used a tomatoe cut up in halves , dipped it in a little sugar and rub it all over my face. I repeated the process about three times, leaving it on for about 15 minutes each time. It worked wonders . Try it.
