Easy Remedies To Remove Skin Tan

Easy Remedies To Remove Skin Tan

During summers, we love going out in the sun, wearing our shorts and skirts and tank tops. It’s fun and bright, with a lot of beach time.

But, one thing we absolutely hate is that tanning that follows after. The skin gets an unwanted dark shade and looks dirty for no reason; it’s irritating and just does not look good. You don’t want a tanned face when you flaunt your fashion earrings.

Apart from remedies like milk, rose-water and aloe vera, here are some extremely easy to do, home-made remedies that are a great solution to our tanning problems:

1. Yogurt and Turmeric Mask

What you need in this is to add a pinch of turmeric (haldi) to a bowl of yogurt. Mix it well and then apply it on the tanned area like face, neck, arms, legs etc. leave it for 20 min and then take a cold shower.

Do it regularly for two weeks as yogurt is found to provide glow to your skin and turmeric will help lighten the shade.

2. Lemon Juice

All you need to do is mix lemon juice with warm water and soak your hands in it for about 20 min. you can do this in a bucket to soak

Yoga – An Elixir for Mind and Body

Yoga – An Elixir for Mind and Body

The Method of Kundalini Jagran

The Kundalini Jagran (release of the dormant energy) is achieved via physical and mental exercise. Physical fitness is achieved by the Yoga Asanas. They are a series of postures for exercising and stretching the body. Mental balance is achieved by Pranayama (Breathing Exercise) and Dhyana (Meditation). The Jagran of Kundalini is just the process towards the goal of self-enlightenment. The Bhagwad Gita the ancient book of knowledge and spirituality defines yoga as a means to achieve union with self. When the state of union with self is achieved the mind gets freedom from all desires and becomes absorbed in self. This helps to understand the true nature of life and the environment around.

Profound Beauty

This question creates a lot of hazzles and pandemonium because we all have various opinions on what beauty is. You may think someone is beautiful while some may sincerely perceive the person as ugly.

In a bid to settle all these disagreements, the most popular answer is that “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”. I don’t contest this because if you ask an orangutan the same question, it believes that its fellow madam orangutan is more beautiful than our own Miss World. The “eyes of beholder” ideology only makes me ask the question “what are the principles that the eyes of beholder operate on?”

When you go back in history; things start unravelling. I notice that the character of a person is so deep that it affects the overall beauty; no wonder they say beauty lies within! A person of good character tends to have an appropriate attitude in all circumstances.

High morality is the principle of a person with good character and it affects the person’s life in totality. Humans can be described as metals that have the ability of becoming magnets. As your level of morality increases, your level of magnetization increases as well and you attract good things.
