A lot of us tend to ignore the skin on our neck and only focus on our facial skin. This negligence sometimes results in tanned neck which doesn’t look that flattering when you wear a deep neck top. There are a lot of products available in the market which claim to remove tan within the first use itself! But most of them are loaded with extremely harmful chemicals that can be bad for your skin in the long run. So how about you try these 5 tan removal DIY home remedies instead? After all – home remedies are always a safer and economical option, Right?
How To Remove Sun Tan From Neck With Home Remedies
DIY Tan Removal Banana Pack
Take a ripe banana and make a thick paste out of it. Then add some olive oil to the paste and apply it evenly on your neck. Keep the pack on for about 15 minutes and then wash it off. This pack will make the skin of your neck feel super smooth while removing the tan from it! 😝
DIY Tan Removal Gram Flour Pack
Gram flour can help you with all your skin related woes. Make a gram flour pack for your neck by mixing all of these ingredients together –
- Gram Flour (also known as chickpea flour)
- Lemon Juice
- Curd (you can take milk if you don’t have curd)
- A pinch of Turmeric
Use this pack on your neck at least twice a week to see better results. To make this pack more effective, you can put half a tablespoon of Orange Peel powder to the mixture because orange peels contain enzymes that help to lighten the skin tone!
DIY Tan Removal Papaya Pack
Papaya is probably the most nutritious and tasty fruit out there (it’s my favourite fruit, by the way! 😉) ! It has various types of skin benefits which we are yet to explore. Here is a simple Tan removal Papaya pack that you can use on your neck as well as on any other areas where you have tanning –
- Mashed Papaya
- Raw Milk
- Malai (fresh cream)
You can keep this pack on your skin for 20 to 30 minutes. After that, wash it off with cold water. The lactic acid present in milk will help to get rid of tanning to a certain extent.

Sandalwood Powder is an ancient Indian ayurvedic beauty secret. It helps to soothe the skin and provides a natural radiance to it. If you have any rashes or irritated skin because of the sun then Sandalwood Powder and Rose Water pack will instantly calm it down.
DIY Tan Removal Oats & Buttermilk Scrub
Oats act like a gentle exfoliant for the skin. Mix some powdered Oats with Buttermilk to form a thick paste. Then gently massage the tanned area using the paste. You can also use it as a pack and scrub it off once it has dried out, it’s up to you.
