Holidays are always something we look forward to around summer. However, it also comes with some cons, including sunburn. Exposure to the sun not only tans the skin but also causes skin problems like dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Harmful UV radiation strips the skin of its moisture content and eventually makes it appear pale and dull.
Are you worried about stepping out in the sun during summers? Then, fret not! Ayurveda has a solution to everything, and tanning is no exception.
