The scorching summer has knocked the door. It’s time to take care of you tender skin! Summer is synonymous with lovely beaches, lazy afternoons, backyard barbeques and that loathsome tanning of skin.

Carrying umbrellas, covering faces, wearing wide hats, etc. are some of the popular ways of protecting the skin from darkening. These aids do help in reducing the suntan but what about the tanned skin that you already have.

Here are some natural remedies to keep your complexion tan-free and glowing.


Potatoes have natural bleaching qualities that are effective in lightening your skin. Grate a potato and squeeze its juice. Apply this extracted juice with the aid of a cotton ball on clean dry face. You can leave it for 10-12 minutes and then wash off with clean water.

Repeat it thrice or four times a week and you will be amazed to see the skin glowing like never before.
