Everything that you need to get beautiful, glowing hands is right here!
Yogurt and Turmeric

Take some fresh aloe vera gel from the sap of the leaf and apply it on your hands. Leave it overnight and wash it off in the morning. The gel consists of antioxidants that protect the skin cells and remove the tan.
Gram flour and haldi (Turmeric)
In a small bowl of cold rose water add 2 tablespoons gram flour (besan), a pinch of haldi and a tablespoon of milk. Spread the prepared paste on your hands and allow it to dry completely.

Soaking in Lemon Juice
Take a bowl with warm lemon juice and soak your tanned hands in it for 20 minutes. After that, rinse your hands with cold water. The vitamin C in the lemon juice protects the skin cells from the UV rays. Make sure you moisturize your skin after this as the acidic lime juice may make your skin dry.
