    Hi Sowmya...This is an article which I recently went through on a site...Let me know if you found this useful for ur tan problem...

    For those who are stuck with a stubborn tan, here are some quick fix Methods to Remove Sun Tan and Burns:


    - “Apply pure sandalwood paste on your face 10- 15 minutes before you go for a shower. It's very soothing and works wonders for your complexion,” says Asha Hariharan of Beyond the Fringe Salons and Spas.

    - Prepare a mixture of besan ( gram flour) and rose water and apply it on the affected area. Leave it till it dries and wash it off with lukewarm water.

    - Apply a paste of papaya, cream and sugar on the tanned area before bathing to get rid of the tan.

    - Mix the juices of tomato and cucumber and apply it on your face on a daily basis to remove tans.

    - “Grate cucumber and strain the juice in a bowl. Add some grated potatoes to it and spread it evenly over your face. This will brighten the skin and erase the tan”

    - Mix sugar with the juice of a lemon. Add a little glycerin to it. Scrub the affected area with this mixture in a gentle circular motion. This will help get rid of the tan and soften the skin.

    - Take a few teaspoons of hot coconuts oil, add 1 to 2 pieces of camphor and apply to the affected area every night before going to bed. You can also make a paste of sandalwood powder mixed with coconut oil and almond oil. Apply the paste on the exposed area and leave it for some time before washing off with cold water.

    - Include items like lettuce, cucumber, radish, broccoli, tomatoes and other leafy vegetables in your diet. They will protect your skin from tanning.

    - But the best way to avoid tans, is to use a good sunblock ranging from SPF 15 to 35, depending on the number of hours you spend outdoors.

    Say no to tans

    �� Use a mixture of lime juice and glycerin. This also helps remove freckles and pigmentation spots
    �� Use Aloe Vera gel over a sunburn or a tan
    �� Use caladryl if you get skin rash due to sunburn
    �� To lighten a tan, use a mixture of curd and lime 10 minutes before bathing. This acts as a natural skin bleaching agent
    �� Take 1tsp of milk powder,½ tsp of sandalwood powder, ½ tsp of limejuice and add a few drops of honey. Make a paste and use this pack twice a week for 10 minutes
    �� Use of foundation and compact also helps to protect against a tan

    Waiting for your reply Sowmya....

    Sowmya.
    How about a new strategy of being proud of your skin color?!
    Did you know that in Europe girls would love to have our complexion.
    Save your time and money and love the skin your're in!

    A good sun blocker could help to avoid those deep tans.
    It is important that you pay close attention to what each type of tanning blocker has to offer.
    There are a lot of tanning lotions for consumers to choose from.

    Just make sure to purchase the right type of tanning lotion for your needs.
