All Natural Face Pack to Remove Tan: DIY

Officially rainy season is here, at least in Hyderabad; and it means the scorching sun is off duty! Although the damage is done already so, all we can do is try to remove it as there is very minimal chance any more damage. As I am quite a natural treatment freak, I always try out different face packs and masks. For the last two weeks I am trying a recipe which I am going to share today.

Things We Need:

  1. 2 tablespoons of Gram Flour/ Besan.
  2. 1 teaspoon of Honey.
  3. A pinch of Turmeric Powder.
  4. 1 tablespoon of Fresh tomato Puree.
  5. 1 tablespoon of Malai (Layer of the fresh milk)
  6. Half a Lemon.


Cut a tomato in half and put it in the blender, mix it for 2 minutes and pour it out in a bowl. Next, Take out the malai of pure cow milk, I always prefer the malai that comes after boiling the milk for the first time. All you need to do is, boil the raw milk, and after 4-5 hours you will see a thick layer is floating on top, take it out gently and place it in a bowl. Now put all the ingredients in a clean bowl and mix well. Apply it on the face, neck, hands area and leave it for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, take water in palms and gently start scrubbing hands, then face and neck. After scrubbing for at least 10 minutes, wash it off with plain water and pat dry.

I would not recommend using face wash after this. If you have very oily skin, you can use a facial toner with cotton ball to remove excess oil of the malai, or you can totally swap it with fresh curd. For dry to normal skin, this pack is very suitable. I have sensitive combination skin and this pack is a life saver for me.


  • Turmeric helps in fighting germs or impurities.
  • Tomato helps in removing tan.
  • Gram flour/ besan is a natural scrub.
  • Lemon juice and honey helps in clearing dark spots.
  • Malai helps in moisturizing the damaged skin.
  • Using it daily would remove tan, dark spots, acne marks.
  • It is purely natural and safe to use daily and on all skin types.
If you have tanned skin, do try this face pack for at least 1 week and do not forget to let me know your experience. I generally apply it before taking bath, you can apply it anytime you want, and make sure you don't apply any face wash after it as it will undo the treatment. If malai is not available, you can use milk or curd also, If you also have awesome tan removal recipes that you love to apply, do share them!

Take care!
