DIY Anti-Tan Beauty Masks for Sun Tanned Skin
Tans are discoloured part of the skin which can vary in size. When human skin gets exposed to sun the cells begin to secrete melanin to protect inner cells from damaging effects of UV rays present in sunlight. This melanin secretion can turn skin’s colour dark in general or over certain areas to form dark spots or suntans. Many people deliberately make some efforts to get a tanned skin, but no one likes suntan over a part of the body as it makes skin look weird. People working out in the sun or spending lots of time in open generally get tans on skin which makes them look older and sick. Anti-tan beauty masks are effective ways to get rid of skin discoloration and gain even tone of skin. These beauty masks for sun tanned skin are also excellent for improving over-all skin’s tone and provide radiance to skin.
Skin is not just one layer of cells and tissues, it is divided in three layers and uppermost layer is the one which faces rapid cell death due to sun, air, water, pollutants and other stressors. Skin keeps on generating cells and replace dead and worn out cells in uppermost layer with fresh new ones to keep it smooth and evenly toned. When skin is exposed to harsh sunlight during peak hours of the day or for longer duration the cells in uppermost layer release melanin. It causes skin darkening and formation of dark spots referred as suntan.
Anti-tan beauty masks slough away cells with higher melanin deposition so that skin replaces these cells with new ones. The new and fresh cells are free of melanin and provide even tone to skin dissolving dark spots. These beauty masks also possess properties which help skin in retaining moisture and hydration to counter effects of stressors. Here we provide few easy to follow recipes for anti-tan beauty masks which can be used by people with any type of skin to gain evenly toned, shiny, soft and radiant skin.
