Easy Home Remedies for Tanned Hands

The heat of summer not only dehydrates our bodies but also dehydrates our skin, leaving it looking drab and lifeless. The UVA radiation from the sun causes the skin to tan. UVA rays penetrate the epidermis' lower layers, activating cells known as melanocytes. Melanin, the brown pigment in the skin that promotes tanning, is produced by these cells. Tanning raises the danger of skin aging prematurely. Our hands receive the most sun exposure since they are rarely shielded from the damaging rays. This may result in skin discoloration and an uneven skin tone. People may employ harsh treatments to remove tan from their hands, such as bleaching their skin, but this promotes further darkening. People may try severe treatments to remove tan from their hands, such as bleaching their skin, but this causes further darkening and makes it rough and dry.

Home remedies for tanned hands
1. Yogurt and Turmeric 
Toss 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder into a bowl of yogurt. Combine the ingredients and apply to your tanned hands. After 20 minutes, rinse it off. Probiotics in yogurt brighten and moisturize the skin, while turmeric improves uneven skin tone.
2. Lemon Juice Soaking
Soak your tanned hands in a bowl filled with warm lemon juice for 20 minutes. Rinse your hands with cold water after that. Lemon juice contains vitamin C, which protects skin cells from UV radiation. Because the acidic lime juice might dry out your skin, be sure to moisturize afterward.  

3. Aloe Vera 
Apply some fresh aloe Vera gel to your hands made from the sap of the leaf. Allow it to sit overnight before washing it off in the morning. The gel contains antioxidants that preserve skin cells while also removing tan.  

4. Cucumber Paste
Combine a cup of cucumber juice with a few drops of lemon juice in a mixing bowl. To produce a paste, combine this with turmeric powder. This paste should be applied, left on for half an hour, and then rinsed off. This will revitalize your skin and help it restore its radiance.  

5. Almond Paste
Soak 5 to 6 almonds overnight in water. Blend the almonds with the milk to produce a paste afterward. Apply the paste, let it on overnight, and then wash it off the next day. Almonds are high in vitamins and riboflavin, which protect and improve the health of the skin.
6. Sandalwood and Turmeric Powder
Mix together a few teaspoons of sandalwood powder and turmeric powder. Toss in two or three drops of rose water. To apply to your hands, combine all of the ingredients and produce a thick paste. Allow 30 minutes for the paste to dry before washing it off. This will improve the skin's appearance and treat any damaged areas.
