Sometimes it feels impossible to manage sun-tanning, and as a result, we end up losing all the hopes. Skin-tanning is one of the major and common beauty issues faced by a lot of individuals, and the main reason is the scorching heat out there. Along with the heat comes harsh UV rays that can lead to sunburn and even skin cancer.
In extreme conditions, overexposure to the sun can lead to premature aging and can affect the immune system as well. Since the effect of sunlight varies according to skin types, it’s seen that people having sensitive skin are more likely to face severe issues. We all know that sunscreen can protect someone’s skin up to some extent externally. A de-tanning treatment might even help you, but to regain the same shine and lustre, you have to pamper your skin naturally. With this being said, here are some natural herbs that will give you flawless skin, without any harms!
Turmeric has been used for hundreds of years to treat various skin-related issues because it has a lot of anti-inflammatory components. The antioxidants in turmeric are proven to lighten skin. If used regularly, one can feel a revival in their skin, because it gets lighter, brighter, and radiant. The presence of curcumin in turmeric is the main reason why it’s so beneficial for every skin type.
If you are not aware of what curcumin is, it’s a powerful antioxidant that is proven to provide flawless skin. Turmeric also helps to reduce the excess amount of melanin, which results in making the skin more toned. In Spite of all these, turmeric even protects skin for sun-tanning.
Since, sun radiation increases the production of matrix metalloproteinase-2 enzyme, that lessens the collagen content, because of which the skin loses elasticity. And having said this, turmeric inhibits the production of the above-mentioned enzyme, and protects the skin deeply from within!
Almost every berry available in nature is rich in antioxidants, and has a lot of benefits for both hair and skin. If consumed, blackberry, raspberry, or strawberry regularly, the difference in skin health is visibly seen. All these berries help in free radicals. Try consuming different berries to protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays. The anti-aging ingredients in the berries work best for wrinkles and dark spots.
Yet another benefit of berries apart from preventing skin-tanning is, it nourishes the skin and gives a healthier glow. You can either include it in your diet, or buy a mask loaded with berries and apply it regularly to get better results.
You have to include saffron in your skincare routine because it has active compounds that are proven to work well against hyperpigmentation, UV radiation, and inflammation. These skin-friendly properties of saffron protect skin a lot from premature skin ageing. UV radiation often causes oxidative stress that damages skin cells which leads to hyperpigmentation.
The active compound in saffron called crocin has potent antioxidant properties. These antioxidants reduce oxidative stress through neutralizing free radicals. Also, crocin protects the skin against ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays too.
The fresh and clear gel of aloe vera has a lot of healing properties and is used for sunburns for ages. It was also used as a traditional herbal remedy to reduce inflammation and ease sunburn symptoms.
Aloe gel contains 19 known amino acids that are necessary for healthier skin. These acids soften hardened skin cells and make the skin look more youthful. Aloe gel even stimulates collagen production and improves skin’s dryness and elasticity. The antibacterial properties of aloe vera prevent skin peeling that usually happens because of overexposure to the sun. The high water content in the gel hydrates the skin and soothes sunburns. You can apply aloe vera on the affected areas, since it lightens it, within a few weeks itself.
The basic rule while going out in summers is protecting yourself as much as you can through sunscreen, scarf, or hats. Never let your body get directly exposed to direct sun, and wear sunglasses as well. Since it’s not really possible to avoid suntan, using anti-tanning natural formulation can help to keep the tanning on the bay.
