My De-Tan Secrets | Preity Prerna

My De-Tan Secrets | Preity Prerna

In my college days, I was pretty tanned. It was because of my extracurricular activities. I was always involved in swimming classes, outdoor sports, and many other activities.

Every time I felt my face was getting tan too much, I would use some home remedies add fix it every time. Today I'm going to teach you the same.

If you have discolouration on your face, uneven tone, pigmentation, and dark spots, then this remedy is for you. Your actual complexion will come out and it will also make your skin shiny from the inside.

Let's get into it.

3 Points To Keep In Mind:

1). Tan Is Not Bad:

Tan is not a bad thing. I used to have a severe tan for years. Lots of mothers are messaging me that our children are getting tanned in the summer.

Look, it's both natural and temporary. It is a mechanism of our body under which when we get directly in sunlight, they produce melanin so that ultraviolet radiation cannot penetrate inside our skin.

All the worried mothers who keep messaging me that their children are getting tan, please understand that it is temporary and eventually, it will go away.

However, you can try this remedy for them so that it becomes slightly lighter.

Daag ache hai, but we cannot keep our clothes dirty. Similarly, tan is also good but we can keep them.

2). Taking Care Beyond Topical Application:

If you think you can fix tan only by topical application, then it's not true.

By doing remedies you remove that layer but it will come again. If you want the results to stay for a longer period, then you have to take care of your body internally.

You can take care of these points:

  • Keep your body hydrated. This doesn't mean just drinking water, you should eat seasonal fruits or salad.

  • Reduce your caffeine intake as tea and coffee dehydrate our body.

  • Consume Vitamin C-rich food.

3). Sun Protection:

Sun rays of sunrise and sunset are like nectar for us.

But in the morning, we are not able to get up and in the evening we don't know when the sunset happened.

The daytime spectrum of sun rays is harmful to us.

You can do all kinds of complicated remedies but if you don't apply sunscreen then there is no point in it. Protecting your skin from harmful sun radiation is very important.


The best time to do this remedy is in before taking a bath. You will feel like you have done a facial.

STEP 1: Cleansing

Clean your entire face properly.

STEP 2: Exfoliation



Step 1: In a bowl take one tablespoon of curd.

Step 2: Add one-third spoon of Kasturi turmeric.

If you don't have Kasturi turmeric don't use kitchen turmeric because you already have tan and kitchen turmeric can cause darkening.

STEP 3: Mask



Step 1: Take one tablespoon of orange peel powder.

Step 2: Take one tablespoon of sandalwood powder.

If you don’t have sandalwood powder, take coffee powder. However, coffee powder is not a substitute for sandalwood powder. The cleanliness properties of both are the same.

But nothing can beat sandalwood powder. It can cure sunburn so tanning is nothing in front of it one spoonful of Sandalwood powder.

Don’t take too much sandalwood powder, make sure it's a little less than orange peel powder.

Step 3: Take one spoonful of curd. Add more according to the consistency you want for your face mask.

Step 4: Mix properly.


Apply the mask properly on your face. You can even apply it on your hands and feet if you've suntan.

Keep it for 10 to 20 minutes and let it dry.

Wash your face, hands and feet. Better take a shower. Moisturise your face, hands and feet and enjoy tan-free skin.

And don't forget to apply proper sunscreen whenever you go out.
