What Is Tanning?

In simple words, tanning is the process in which the skin pigment melanin is increased due to the overexposure to the sunlight. This is the natural way of protecting the skin from sun damage.  Face, neck, arms, hands, feet, are some of the areas that are more prone to suntan. Visible signs of ageing, increasing risk of carcinoma, melanoma and skin cancer are some of the tanning effects.

Causes Of Tan:

The sun emits three different wavelengths of the ultraviolet light (UV rays) which is:

  • UVA
  • UVB
  • UVC

UVA and UVB radiations can penetrate deep into your skin layers and can cause serious damage. Excess of melanin (skin-dark pigment) is produced by melanocytes when UVA radiations penetrate deep into the skin, which supplementary darkens the skin due to oxidation and causes tanning.

What Is De Tan?

De tan meaning: In simple words, de-tan is the process of removing the pile-up of  cells and skin which is tanned due to the exposure to pollution and radiation emitted by the sun. Please note that it is not an alternative to get fairer skin, but it is done to remove the tanned skin to counterbalance the skin tone.

How To De-Tan At Home?

There are so many effective methods to get rid of the tanned skin as most of the effective natural detan ingredients are readily available in most of the homes. A proper skin care regime helps to get rid of tan easily at home and get back the original skin tone.
