Summer is here and with it the problems: Heat, tussling with scorching heat, sweat and tanning is common in these days. In our fast-paced lives, we want to look presentable every minute of our day, but we do not have the time or money to invest expensive treatments. That is why in this article we’ll tell you how to detan yourself at home”


In our skin there are cells called melanocytes. They are activated when they come into contact with UV rays and cause pigmentation to protect our skin – this pigmentation is called tanning. The layer of dead skin cells not only makes us look bad, but also makes us feel under confident, aged, dull, aged, and not presentable. But fortunately, there are some natural ingredients that are easily available in the stores and in the kitchen near us, and you can easily use them by following this article “How to detan yourself at home”.


  1. Turmeric, milk and honey
    Turmeric contains antimicrobial and anti-oxidizing properties, while milk and honey provide moisture and a soft texture to the skin. Roast the turmeric until it is dark but not burnt. Then put it in a bowl and add a mixture of raw milk and honey. Apply it and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water and you will see a visible difference in your skin tone. Use it twice a week on the affected areas.

    2. Potato skins and lemon juice
    Potatoes are rich in natural bleaching agents and anti-inflammatory complexes which helps in skin brightening. Elements of lemon such as vitamin C also help to lighten the skin and fight free radicals. Mix either potato juice or potato pulp with 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice and apply generously. Then gently rub it into your skin. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and clean with cotton or a clean cotton cloth.

    3. Besan ( Gram flour), curd and turmeric
    My Naniji gave me this remedy or desi nuskha as we say in Hindi for “how to detan at home” a few years ago. She said that you must mix about two teaspoons of besan, one teaspoon of curd and half teaspoon of turmeric and then apply it on your face, arms or wherever you want. After 20-25 minutes, rinse it off, dab yourself with a clean cloth and see how you glow.

    4. Papaya and honey
    Not everyone, but most of us hate the taste of papaya. But it does not have to be, because it can help you especially in tanning your face. Take the papaya out of the fridge, cut it into small pieces and mash it with a spoon. Enzymes such as papain and chymopapain can break down the melanin pigment in your skin and make it lighter. Honey helps in moisturization and hydration of the skin. Mix both ingredients and leave it on the affected area for 10 minutes. Rinse it off with cold water.

    5. Saffron water
    We use saffron in our food (as a spice) and cosmetics too graciously because it is known for its number of benefits. People believe that saffron plays a very important role in determining the skin colour of babies. We have seen that many pregnant women in our country consume saffron so that their baby has a fair skin colour. It also helps us with our tanning problem, this is also a simple procedure, you just need to put some saffron threads in milk or water overnight. Put it on your face in the morning for 15-20 minutes and you will get a glowing skin.

    6. Cucumber and rose water
    We have seen countless movies and series where women relax in the salon with face masks and cucumber on their eyes. Well, it has a soothing and cooling effect that is refreshing. It also helps to lighten dark circles under the eyes. The same is true for de-tanning at home. To try out this , you will have to cut the cucumber into small pieces, grind it in a mixture and strain out the juice. Mix it with some rose water, which you can easily find in the market nearby, and viola your potion is ready. Fill it in a spray bottle and spray it on your face. You can use it 3-4 times a day. Another benefit is this it acts like a natural toner for your skin. 

7.Last but not least, if you do not want to do it all yourself, you can always opt for salon at home services. Professionals come to your home to provide you with safe, hygienic and hassle-free services with first-class products. they come to you and the session is based on your tanning needs. They start the routine with a cleanser and apply the tanning mixture, followed by a cleansing. You do not have to do anything, just enjoy your glow.
