Tanned Skin Remedies: My skin often gets tanned while going to collage so please tell me a simple remedy for my skin. Thanks.

The effect of the sun on the skin is one of the major factors that cause tanning. Therefore the best way to take care of your skin when travelling is to wear a sunscreen that has a sun protection factor or SPF of 15 at least. Make sure that the sun screen is equipped with the capability to block both UVA or UVB rays and also sunscreens that are nonacnegenic or noncomedogenic in order to help keep the pores clean. The intensity of the sun is greatest between ten in the morning to four in the evening therefore if you can; try and reapply the sunscreen at one more time.

There are no sure shot remedies to prevent the darkening of your skin however if you maintain a balanced diet you can give your skin a healthy and fresh appeal. Drink a lot of water during the day as it will help keep your skin hydrated and prevent it from drying too much. As far as possible your diet should contain a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables and very low amounts of oily and heavy foods. Wear clothing that covers your arms completely in order to reduce or prevent the effect of tanning.
