Mix the ingredients well until a paste is formed. If you want to add a moisturizing element to this pack, you can always add some honey to it. Apply the paste to the tanned areas of your body and allow it to stay for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes are over, rinse off the paste with lukewarm water.
Just like the numerous other benefits of coconut milk, removing sun tan is also one of them. All you need to do is take a cotton ball and soak it with organic coconut milk. Dab this coconut milk soaked cotton ball all over your face and other parts that are affected by sun tan. Let the milk dry off on your face until it is absorbed completely. After the coconut milk has absorbed into the skin completely, wash it off using a mild cleanser. You will instantly feel your skin to be hydrated and nourished.
