When the skin gets in touch with sun rays, it starts producing melanin. Melanin is a pigment that is responsible for the color of our skin, hair, and eyes. Due to the excess production of melanin, our skin color gets darker, leading to tanning. Depending upon the severity of the tanning, it may disappear in one week to a month.

Here are the 3 easy steps to remove tanning naturally at home:

1. Masoor-Sandalwood-Orange Face Scrub

Masoor dal (red split lentil) has natural bleaching agents. Orange is rich in Vitamin C, which is beneficial to remove tan quickly. The natural oils present in sandalwood reduces the tanning and gives a cooling effect on the skin. Therefore, scrub made of masoor, orange, and sandalwood is a perfect home remedy to get rid of suntan.
