How to remove Sun Tan?

In a sun-drenched country like India, tanned skin can be a common concern due to prolonged exposure to harmful UV rays. Excessive sun exposure can result in unwanted tanning.


What is Tanning?
Tanning occurs when the skin's melanin production increases in response to UV radiation from the sun. It is your body's way of defending itself against the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Hence protecting your skin from the Sun is very important to maintain Healthy & Happy Skin. Therefore, Sunscreen is must in your daily-routine skincare.


What SPF is best for Indian skin?
When it comes to determining the best SPF (Sun Protection Factor) for Indian skin, there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. The ideal SPF can vary depending on factors such as skin tone, climate, and sun exposure duration.
However, dermatologists generally recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for Indian skin.


It's important to understand that the SPF number refers to the level of protection against UVB rays. An SPF higher than 30 or SPF of 40++ UVA blocks approximately 97% of UVB rays, while higher SPFs offer slightly more protection.
However, it's crucial to note that SPF values of 50 or beyond 50 do not provide significantly higher protection and may mislead users into thinking they can spend excessive time in the sun without reapplication.
(Remember to apply sunscreen generously and reapply it regularly for optimal protection.
Note: Instead of higher SPF, it matters that how much amount of sunscreen we are applying in proper way to get better protection.)

Besides SPF, it's also important to consider other factors when choosing a sunscreen for Indian Skin.

Even though office employees spend most of their time indoors, they are still exposed to UV radiation from sunlight when commuting, walking to lunch, or sitting near windows. Moreover, exposure to blue light emitted from screens may also impact skin health. Thus, wearing sunscreen with SPF30/ higher than 30  or SPF15 base moisturizer  daily is essential to protect against these potential harms.
However, for those who spend more time outdoors, doing field work then wearing sunscreen with 40SPF or higher than that is essential.

Remember : Higher SPF products would contain Titanium dioxide or other ingredients which could be harmful.


Let’s explore more steps to prevent your skin from tanning:
Regular cleansing and exfoliation help remove tan.
