Hello Priya
Welcome to HCM
Skin is a constantly regenerating photosensitive organ and the under eye area is even more sensitive.
Suntan is best prevented by sunscreen than treated .this is because the darkening of skin is due to a pigment melanin deposited in the skin and it cannot be removed or erased off the skin . But with time as our skin is renewed the pigmentation decreases and so our tan decreases.
So please do not try any drastic methods to erase a tan.
There are many creams in market but many have sideeffects too so it is best to consult a dermatologist if you really are in a haste to get rid off may try natural alovera too.
Thank you

Hi Priya Shanu,

Welcome to HCM

You can apply one tea spoon lime juice mixed with honey & apply all over the face & leave it for 20min this will help you to remove tan, you can use it daily befor going to bed, you can also use Ice Cube to remove tan. Add fresh fruits & geenleafy vegetable in your diet, which will help you to improve your complexion, if you have a dry skin then you can also use bason powder mixed with termeric & yoghort to improve complexion.

Hope I answerd your question...

Good day
