Summers are here and what bothers me the most is the Sun Exposure.

The tan which we are going get now by roaming & catching up with our friends at connaught place at 1 pm, gives me nightmares. Being an introvert can be only our savior, here!

Since our childhood we have been taught Sun is the best source of Vitamin. D. We can spot white-skinned people with burnt like reddish kinda skin playing under the sun on beaches. I too got motivated once but there is no thing like Good Tan. I mean we can't stop ourselves from having fun and doing whatever our heart says but we can prevent the aftermath of skin ageing and pigmentation by following some simple regimes.

To answer the question, 'If we don't step in the Sun how will we get our Vitamin D?'
For that 2-3 hrs direct sun exposure per week is sufficient. Also the melanin produced will help delay hair graying too.
My recent day out for swimming changed my skin tone and then again had to walk under the Sun next day, added to the misery.
Clouds may give a false sense of security. Never ever skip a sunscreen, thinking it is not sunny today as the harmful UV sun rays are still present around us. Reflected light can damage too. On sunny days, even if you are in the shade, sun can reflect on to your skin. Sand, water, concrete and snow are good reflectors of sunlight.

Though we all get afraid of Sun we can't live without him. Every morning when we roll over the curtains, the sun rays make us happy and we start our day. Without Sun, everything would be so dark and dull. It helps in fighting depression. So leave all the fuss behind, enjoy your day and pamper your skin with :-

1. Cucumber + Lemon + Rosewater

Note : Cucumber will give out a lot of water, so don't add any water. All your blemishes and tan will go away with continuous usage. 

2. Besan Pack (Gram flour)

This face pack involves scrubbing out dead cells.
Apply on clean face and let it dry for 20 minutes.
Moist the dried areas by sprinkling water on it and slowly remove the pack by scrubbing gently in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction.
Apply this pack once in two days for effective exfoliation and tan removal.

3. Papaya and Honey Face Pack:

This delicious fruit pack helps remove sun tan by using the goodness of enzymes like beta-carotene and phytochemicals help in promoting fairness, removing sun tan and visibility of scars and blemishes. 
Another enzyme called papain even tones the skin by dissolving dead skin cells. Moreover, it is also known to slow down facial hair growth and prevents ageing by activating collagen.

The application of honey on chapped lips is an age old remedy. Honey helps in moisturizing and softening the skin.
Let it dry for 20 mins and wash with cold water.
Note: I make the use of peeled off papaya skin and extract pulp from that with the help of a spoon.
This way we make the use of every inch of our fruit and minimizing the wastage. 
Sometimes being an engineer or you can say being a middle-class helps ! 😉😜

4.Tomato, Yogurt and Lemon Juice Face Pack:

This face pack incorporates the powerful bleaching properties of lemon, tomato and yogurt and is one of the best face packs for improving the skin ton. It works wonders in removing dark spots and pigmentation from sun kissed skin. In addition, tomato juice works as a natural toner to shrink open pores and reduce oiliness of the skin, whereas yogurt helps in moisturizing and nourishing the skin.

Let it dry for 30 minutes. Wash with cold water.
Apply this pack twice in a month in Summers.
