In summers, a day spent outdoors can quickly go awry if you do not use adequate sun protection – the first and most prominent sign of which is tanning. The natural fighting mechanism by which the body produces melanin to guard itself against harmful sunrays leaves your skin darker and lackluster. It may take a few days or even weeks for your skin to get back its natural glow, but thankfully, you have anti-tan formulas to the rescue. Our beauty editor recommends these anti-tan face packs and masks to soothe sun-exposed skin and restore its brightness. Add them to your skincare routine, and your skin will thank you for keeping it in good company.
