Tanning is the result of an increase in melanin (skin pigment) caused by sunlight exposure. This is the normal way the body protects the skin from sun damage. Here is how to remove tan from face and body.
Areas Prone To Tan – Arms, Face, Head, Legs, Feet, Back, Neck
The solar spectrum (sunlight) consists of UV (ultraviolet) rays at three wavelengths- UV A, UV B, UV C
When UVA rays penetrate the skin layers, the melanocytes are signaled to produce excess melanin (skin-darkening pigment), which is further darkened by oxidation and causes tanning.
Suntan affects the immune system which can result in more damage to the skin which is ageing. So you have to examine the form of skin and fight it with the right treatments for tan removal.
