    Answer -
    I use raw potato juice to remove tan and dark spots. It can also be mixed with a little lemon juice as lemon has natural bleaching properties. It even works for dark circles. :)

  2. summer skin care tip to keep suntan and spots at bay: slap on some sunscreen! It is cliche, yet the most important tip! Apply the sunscreen at least 20 minutes before you step outside and do not forget to reapply it every few hours to keep your skin protected since its effect could wear off. Also, ensure that it is applied on all parts of the body that are exposed without just focusing on your face. Together with this, cover & protect the skin with shades, scarf, and a hat.

    To Keep Sun tan and Sun Spots at bay, I never, never ever, ever leave my house without a good sunscreen which has at least SPF 50 and after coming back, I make it a point to apply Pure Aloe Vera Gel to my face. This really helps :)

    Answer - Mix Haldi, Besan, Curd, a little milk and a few drops of rose water and make into a paste. Apply this paste all over your face and neck and wash off after it dries. Really helps fight suntan and spots.

    Another great idea is to make a mixture of rose water, lemon and glycerine and apply on your face before going to sleep every night. Really helps the skin get back it's glow and become flawless :)

    My answer - Boil 1 teaspoon Tea Leaves in 1 cup water. Cool it down & store it in a spray bottle and keep it in the refrigerator. Now after washing ur face & half hour before stepping out in the Sun, spray it on ur face & the exposed areas to keep suntan and spots at bay :-)
