How to Prevent Tanning?

First, try to avoid any unwanted or not so important outing during the peak hours (from 10 am to 2 pm) when the sunlight is harsh, especially in India. This doesn’t mean you cover yourself like a mummy. That’s the time to take out your stole sunglasses or hat and style it your way. Otherwise, you can accessorize your daily life with a pretty umbrella. Be it summer or winter this will be there by your side.
