Summer brings along with itself vacations, mangoes and ice creams. What we don't like about the summer season is that it brings a lot of problems for our skin as well. As you step out in the scorching heat during a sunny afternoon, you put your skin at stake. The harmful rays of the sun can damage your skin really badly and it isn't really easy to get relief from it. One of the biggest summer skin problems is tanning. While a lot of products available in the market promise you relief from sun tanning, you don't know if they are loaded with any harmful chemicals. To stay safe, it is best to go with natural remedies.
