You might have come across several de-tanning products and creams. However, Ayurveda believes that our very own nature is gifted with such powerful things that can solve your problem in minutes.   

Take a look at these five basic ingredients in your home kitchen and get ready to bid goodbye to that tan.  

1. Turmeric

Also known as Haldi, it not only makes your Kadhi so tasty but can give your skin a youthful glow instantly. It also contains more than 300 antioxidants that control breakouts and make your face fresh.

2. Lemon Juice and Honey   

Lemon Juice has excellent bleaching property whereas honey contains a lot of antioxidants and helps in preventing cell damage. However, honey shouldn’t be kept for long on oily skin.
