Red lentil, Tomato and Aloe vera

Make a paste of a tablespoon of soaked red lentil. Take equal quantities of tomato puree and aloe vera extract. Add this to the red lentil paste and mix well. Apply this on the affected areas. Let it rest for half an hour and rinse well.


Soak almonds in water for three to four hours and grind into a rough paste. Scrub the affected areas with this paste and bid goodbye to suntan.

Oatmeal and Buttermilk

Oatmeal exfoliates the skin and buttermilk gives deep nourishment. Take one part of oatmeal to three parts of buttermilk. Mix thoroughly and spread it on the affected areas. Wash off after it dries.

Ice cubes

Wrap a few ice cubes in a muslin cloth and apply on the tanned areas. For excessive sun burns, soothe your skin by applying ice directly on the affected areas.
