Essential Oils to Fade Suntan


Hi, Can you give me a recipe for removing tan caused by sun exposure (hands and feet) using essential oils?


The only essential oil I know of that removes darkness on skin is Lemon essential oil. Lemon juice also works, but no natural remedies for darkened skin work very quickly.

Here's what I would do if I were you: every morning and night I would rub my hands and feet with pure lemon juice, then rinse it off with water.

At night I would rub in a simple body oil recipe: 1/4 cup aromatherapy carrier oil with 10 drops Lemon essential oil. Only do this at night though, because Lemon essential oil can increase your risk of sunburn.

I hope that helps - good luck!

How about adding lemon essential oil to aloe vera gel since both have skin lightening properties and well absorbed into skin .. does this sound cool ?!?!
