Curd is one of the best remedy to reduce tan. Apply curd on face for 5 min and wash it off.

For more effectve results add turmeric to curd and leave it on for 20 min, as turmeric is a natural bleach, this will make skin fairer.

Tomato is also known for reducing tan, rub it all over your face and wash after 15 min with luke warm water.

Lactocalamine lotion applied before bed also aids in the process.

Do not forget to use sunblock creme with SPF not less than 15, when ever you step out of home and wear full sleeves too, to protect arms.
