Tips to remove suntan
We think that it will be useful if we give you some valuable and simple tan removal tips this summer
Everybody knows that skin has a pigment called melanin which is responsible for its brown color. The higher the melanin content the darker the skin will be. The same pigment is responsible for tanning of skin. When your skin is exposed to sunlight it produces more melanin and the skin gets darkened. Usually the tan will fade over time as the cells constantly regenerate and replace the old cells. A sun tan doesn’t cause any health issue.
However, a severe sun tan can be a cause of cosmetological concern as the exposed parts are darker than the unexposed parts of skin and when you wear deeper neckline and short sleeve it will look odd as the difference in skin color will be visible. Also, there are a variety of facial skin types like normal, oily, combination skin types. The sun tan can be moderate to severe depending) on the exposure time and also skin type. Sometimes the tan on your face can be patchy as the melanin is not distributed properly. In this case it’s always good to try some handy home remedies to avoid embarrassing situations.
