Summer is here and so are the tan marks.
Just going out from the house itself could get you heated up in the season. And the worst part from all the heat will probably be the tan marks that come along. Of course, there are a lot of sun lotions out there which could help you to an extent, but then again, it uses chemicals that have even worse side effects.
So what is the remedy you may ask? Well, the answer is: Homely recipes. There are a lot of food items that could help you to get rid of tan without many side effects and here is a look at them.
