The beach season is just around the corner. Companies of girls and boys will expose their bodies to the scorching sun in the hope of getting a chocolate tan. But the result does not always meet expectations.
Unfortunately, sometimes tanning doesn't work the way you want it to. Swimsuit straps, sunglasses, and even the use of makeup can cause your tan to stain. And if you lie on the beach in the daytime, you can easily get burned or overdo it with a tan. What to do in this case? You can wait several weeks for the tan to go away on its own, or try to get rid of it with the available means.
The advantage of folk remedies over cosmetic ones is in their naturalness. Some products are not only as effective as cosmetics, but also less harmful to the skin.
Lemon juice has a whitening effect. It is not recommended to use it in its pure form due to the aggressive effects of citric acid. However, you can make a tonic by mixing lemon and cucumber juice. With this mixture, you need to wipe the place of an unsuccessful tan. If you mix lemon juice with yogurt or low-fat sour cream, you get an effective whitening mask.
Unlike lemon, cucumber can be used on its own. Either cut it into slices and apply to the sunburn, or grate it on a fine grater and apply as a mask.
Potato juice also has a whitening effect. Potatoes must be grated and, without draining the juice, apply the resulting gruel to the skin.
To get rid of sunburn, you can use parsley. It is necessary to finely chop the juicy stems and squeeze the juice out of them. After wiping the skin, be sure to wash with cool water.
A variety of peels and scrubs will help to get rid of sunburn from cosmetics. Any product for your skin type will do. Instead of a scrub, you can use a hard washcloth. These procedures will exfoliate the top layer of the skin along with unwanted sunburn.
In the arsenal of many cosmetic companies, there are creams and lotions with a whitening effect. When choosing such a tool, you should pay attention to the composition. When using acids, it is imperative to use a protective cream with a UV filter.
To get rid of redness if the skin is burnt, it is recommended to use "Panthenol". The product will help relieve pain and very quickly restore the skin, relieving redness.
Sometimes the problem is easier to avoid than to look for a way out later. The best time for sunbathing is from 9 am to 11 am and after 4 pm. At this time, the risk of getting burns is much lower, and the tan lays down more evenly. Using sunscreen will also be beneficial.
