    Be Sun Safe

    This healthy skin habit cannot be stressed enough. Sun can cause normal tanning to chronic discolouration to your skin. Avoid going out between 10 am to 4 pm because sun’s heat is at its maximum intensity during this time.  If you must step out in the sun, wear a high SPF sunblock 20 minutes before leaving the house. SPF 15 is not sufficient anymore; use at least SPF 30. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Dress Smart

    While you are out in the sun, wear long sleeved shirt and full-length trousers in order to avoid exposing your skin to sunlight. You may want to wear dark coloured clothes which do not let sunlight reach your skin. To protect your face, wear a hat which shades most part of your face. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Use Anti-discolouration Products

    Try using any or a combination of chemicals glycolic acid, retinal and even salicylic acid at least 3 times a week on your skin. All these chemicals naturally even out discoloration. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Exfoliation takes off dead skin cells; Use it a few times a week. Exfoliation only helps if your current skin is darker than your normal skin tone, because it reveals fresh skin, untouched by the sun. If you do not have an exfoliator, make one by mixing sugar or sand into liquid soap. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Use Lemon

    After washing make-up and lotions from your face each night, dab lemon juice on it. Close your eyes or keep the juice away from your eyes. You will feel a burning sensation because of it, but if you can keep on a small quantity for fifteen minutes, then wash it off, it will help in lightening your skin. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Use tea tree facial cleansers. Tea tree goes deep into the skin and cleanses it out for a clear look. If you were fair but tanned or burned, tea tree cleansers should help. Image Courtesy: Getty
