How To Remove Tan From Hands: Living in India and not facing the brutal sun is like the freezer of the refrigerator with no ice. The most annoying part is getting the skin burns or suntan on the exposed areas. I often find women on streets all covered up in scarves and full sleeves, only their eyes and nose out. This seems a bit hilarious to me. (no offense!) . It does work to some extent. But people like me can’t really take that extra heat and also find them suffocating. So I end up getting tanned off course. But there are some easy by home remedies in my armor. So check out the top 5 natural ways on how to remove tan effectively.

How To Remove Tan From Hands

#1: Gram Flour-Lemon scares away the demon


Gram Flour, lemon juice, turmeric powder

Process & Application:

Take a tablespoon of gram flour, add a dash of turmeric powder and squeeze in some lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey. Make a paste of it. Apply it all over the tanned areas and wait until it’s dry. Then wash it off.

Lemon juice does the job of bleach but a much toned down natural version. Honey makes skin smooth and radiant. This can be the most effective method and also a popular one with our grannies. I have used it myself a dozen of times when I spent my holidays in sea beach. It worked!

#2: Tomato Patito


Tomato, yogurt

Process & Application:

Smash tomatoes to get its pulp and mix it mix some yogurt to make a paste. Apply and keep it for 20-30 minutes and then thoroughly wash off.

Tomato is not only a favorite in our salad but also in a beauty regime. Not only used for clearing tan but also to clear out acne spots. It’s a perfect couple as tomatoes help control oiliness of the skin making it slightly dry whereas curd adds moisture to the skin plus it has lactic acid which helps improve complexion plus. So say hello to glowing smooth skin.

#3 Cucumber Midsummer


Cucumber, lemon juice

Process & Application:

Grate the cucumber and squeeze out the pulp. Add a few drops of lemon juice. You can cool the mixture in the refrigerator for sometime before applying. Wash it off after about 10 minutes.

The most hydrating veggies of all will leave you feeling fresh. Loaded with vitamin C and anti-oxidants, cucumber will not only remove tan but also sooth irritating skin due to sunburns.

#4 Potato Bling



Process & Application:

This idea is for all lazy people (like me). Just grab a raw potato and cut half. Rub it on those areas. The potato juice works like natural bleach. Wait till it dries then wash off with cold water. This will not only remove tan within days but also help you sooth sunburn. It is also used for treating dark under eyes.

#5 Coffee with Aloe Vera


Coffee, aloe vera

Process & Application:

Take one spoon full of coffee powder. You can also add milk powder 1/3 the amount for added benefits. Make a paste with Aloe Vera gel.

Apply on skin and gently massage in circular motion for 2-3 minutes and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then wash off.

Coffee is rich in caffeine, an ingredient that repairs the damage that harmful UV rays do to our skin on daily basis. It is also used to treat dark under eyes and puffiness. Coffee grains can exfoliate skin effectively. Aloe Vera moisturizes the skin bringing a natural glow.

All the above methods take approximately a week depending on the intensity of tan. We all have a unique skin type, so what works for the other, may not work for you. So try these natural methods, they won’t harm your skin anyway. See which one works for you and stick with it and leave your house with confidence.
