Answer:Â Â Over-exposure to sun rays causes tanning of the skin and over time the skin gets darkened. If you are stepping out in the sun, make it sure not to expose your skin to direct sun. Opt for lose fitted, full-sleeved clothes in cotton or carry an umbrella to protect your self from sun rays. Also remember to use a good sunscreen lotion with a high SPF factor, depending on the level of exposure to the sun and your skin’s sensitivity to tanning. There are several simple home remedies for tanning which help to reduce the darkening effects of exposure to the sun and restore the skin to its original glowing health. Rubbing slices of potato on mildly tanned skin helps to reduce the tanning effect. If the tanning is severe and your skin has become quite dark, you should scrub the tanned skin daily with a mixture of sugar, lemon juice and glycerine. Alternately you can apply a mixture of 1tsp of potato juice and 1tsp of lemon juice for 15 minutes on the affected parts and rinse it off with cold water.
