Have severely tanned neck and arms and to a certain extent my face
How do i get rid of the tan? I’ve a oily skin and prone to breakouts
Hi Akshay..There is no quick fix to tan problems really..
Recently Lalitha suggested Bioderma sunscreen to be effective,you can try that..
One more option which helped my similar problem is Chemical peeling,in few sittings it lightens skin tone and removes tan..One of the most effective solutions for Tan..
1)Always use a good sunscreen with UVA and UVB rays protection..
2)Re apply whenever necessary..Sunscreen does not stay on skin for a very long time..Additionally sweat also washes it away sooner than required..
3)If you are swimming,jogging or undergoing rigorous sports/physical activity then go for high spf sunscreen like Bioderma..
4)Sun exposure is inevitable but try to limit the exposure ..
5)Wear protective clothing like full sleeves,hoodie jackets etc..
6)Wear sunscreen irrespective of indoors/outdoors/cloudy/rainy days/inside car..
7)Ideally wear sunscreen before you leave college/work,afternoon and evening before you exit..
8)Since your acne prone,choose a good non comedogenic sunscreen..
These are some tips to prevent further sun damage..
Hope it helps..Good Luck 🙂
Hi Akshay, for the body, you could try Vaseline Healthy White Triple Lightening Body Lotion SPF 24. For the face, Lotus Herbals 3-in-1 Matte Look Sunblock. The Lotus sunblock can cause breakouts if you are extremely prone to breakouts.
For the face, you might consider using a combination of Glomed / Glycolite face wash + sunscreen. After washing the face with one of these face washes, apply sunscreen generously 15-20 minutes before stepping out.
I guess on neck and arms, any tan remover will do as the skin is different and you won’t get pimples there. Wash your hands after applying though.
Thank you all for your valuable suggestions ! Will try out what i feel best suited to me and let you know if i get any results
Getting married in february, any advice on how to prep up a skin care regime to achieve radiant and smooth skin?
hi akshay …. for tan removal in your arms you could use natures essence lacto tan clear its extremely effective in removing tan. and as far as I know the best out there how ever don’t use it on your face as it contains lactic acid and might cause break outs, but definitely for your arms. its available online
even I had the same problem extremely tanned hands and feet so I used it before my wedding saw good results.. it was recommended by my make up artist but I have oily and sensitive skin , so I never used it on my face
And can you elaborate on your experience with chemical peeling and brief me on the procedure?
Also need feedback on these blood purifying syrups like “hamdard safina” and juice diet of carrot and beet root juice, Kindly bear with my incessant queries, thank you in advance
Hi Akshay, post questions unrelated to tanning as new question threads. Otherwise no one looking for “wedding grooming for men” or “blood purifiers for acne” will ever guess that the answers lie in a thread titled “Tan removal from neck and arms”. Please and thank you. 😛
Oops ! Alright 😛 🙂
And Akshay Nature Essence’s Lacto Clear is comedogenic..
