With summer, comes sun-tan. No matter how bright and beautiful the day is, you are faced with summer tan troubles. And you are most likely to use anti-tan products to protect yourself from getting tanned or sunburned. But do you know how harmful anti-tan products are?

Check this out. This is what experts say. How harmful anti-tan products are:

1. Most anti-tan products you find in the markets contain harmful chemicals that may cause allergy and harm your skin.

2. Some anti-tan products can cause rashes, redness and itching. Because the chemical present in the products is strong it can cause chemical reactions to your skin, especially if you have soft and sensitive skin.

3. Anti-tan products can worsen marks and acne on your face. If you have any skin problem you must avoid using it.

In view of the major harmful effects of using anti-tan chemical products, opt for homemade herbal remedies that can easily protect you from sun-tan.

If you choose to try the products sold in the market, first apply in small areas of the skin to check if it is non-reactive and your skin is not allergic to it.

Always cover your hair and skin when you step out in the sun with a scarf or umbrellas. They are pretty and fashionable. Make the best of it while the sun shines.

So here you are, saved with few simple beauty hacks. Take good care of your skin and stay beautiful.
