As Indians, we are constantly worried about tanning. Understanding the process of tanning is important to prevent and treat in the future. So instead of opting for expensive de-tan or the face of fairness, you could try some natural ways to get rid of Tan. Here are three natural ways to do it. But first, let’s understand some basics of why does our skin tanning.
‘Cause we are sunburned?
It ‘s simple, the Tan is the body’s way to protect your internal organs from damage caused due to exposure to UV rays of the sun. Known to cause serious diseases such as cancer, the UV rays are extremely dangerous to our internal organs. To help prevent them from entering the body, our skin produces a pigment called melanin. Exposure to the sun, your skin will automatically send this pigment to the surface to help fight the damage – the most exposure to the sun, the darker melanin turns. This is because the sun light breaks down melanin that leads to it becoming oxidized and darkening of the skin.
Why are some people more than others Tan?
The amount and the degree of darkness of melanin present in the body is determined by one of the genes. For example, people who are genetically fair, they will have less melanin and lighter than darker people that change the amount and color of melanin. What makes the situation worse is the fact that different people have different skin types (which vary in thickness and sensitivity); This is still a determining factor for the amount of tanning.
