Sun tanning is a very common condition where your skin color is darkened due to over exposure to the sun. This tan is caused by the harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays of the sun that partially burns the sensitive content in your skin. Sometimes artificial tanning is also obtained such as tanning sprays and sun bathing. Sometimes you might be more prone to sun tanning with aging and you might develop certain spots which might indicate skin cancer as well. During this tanning process the melanin pigment in your skin is affected and it results into direct or indirect DNA damage. The tanning process indicates a change in your skin color which varies from dark brown to nearly a colorless pigmentation. Even if you do not have sun burns, by tanning you can obtain permanent or temporary skin damage which results into wrinkles in your skin, saggy skin and permanently darkened skin which might also caused age spots and discoloration of your skin. A normal skin tan would last for six to ten days but if you have over exposure then it can last up to a couple of months. If you chose to seek cosmetic help then you can obtain the help of the tan chart which helps you to decide the amount of cream or lotions that you need to apply.
The treatment for sun tanning usually does not require any form of special treatment unless and until it indicates signs of skin cancer. Mostly home remedies help you to overcome the problems of sun tanning. Sometimes medicinal sunscreen lotions of SPF 30 or more are prescribed to prevent sun burns. Other home remedies involve applying lemon juice on the tanned areas and wait for a few minutes before you wash it off. The application of yogurt is an effective way to prevent skin tanning and skin burns. Yogurt helps to cool off your skin and reduces the pores of your skin to prevent redness and tanning. You can apply fresh aloe vera before going to bed and also in the morning and then wash your skin properly.
