How to Make Your Skin Lighter

How to Make Your Skin Lighter - whether you want to experiment with natural home remedies or go down the chemical route instead. You will also find some helpful, general advice on taking good care of your skin. In addition to lightening your skin, the methods described below can also help to fade unwanted freckles, sun spots, and blemishes.

1. Try fresh lemon juice. Cut a lemon in half, using only one half and saving the other. Be sure to put the unused half in a cool area, such as the refrigerator. Squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl. Poke small but deep holes in the lemon half with a knife.This will make it easier to squeeze the juice from it.
  • Use a cotton ball to soak up the lemon juice, rub the lemon juice onto the area you wish to lighten. This could be your face, neck, or anywhere else you wish to lighten. Avoid getting the lemon juice in your eyes.
  • Leave for about 15 - 20 minutes before washing it off. Use warm water to rinse, and always apply moisturizer after the lemon juice mixture.
  • Repeat this 2 - 3 times per week. Applying more than once per day is not recommended.
  • If you feel that the lemon juice is too harsh on your skin, try diluting it to half strength with water before applying.
2.Make a lemon mask. A mask will let the acidic part of the lemon slowly seep into pores and gradually change the complexion of the skin.
  • For a skin-lightening mask, mix together 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon tomato juice, 1 tablespoon cucumber juice, and 1 tablespoon sandalwood paste into a paste. Apply to skin and let sit 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and moisturize.
  • For a skin-lightening mask for dry skin, mix together 1 tablespoon powdered milk, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and 2 drops of essential oil. Apply to skin and let sit for 20-25 minutes. Rinse with warm water and moisturize.
  • Masks, exfoliants and peels should be used sparingly, once or twice a week. Too much contact with skin-drying agents can cause excessive dryness or irritation.
3.Try coconut water. Coconut water is said to lighten the skin, while also leaving it soft and supple. Try dipping a cotton ball in the coconut water, then wipe the liquid over your face, or any other area you wish to lighten. No need to rinse off.
  • You can also try drinking coconut water to hydrate skin from the inside out. Coconut water is a great source of essential minerals and is also low in calories.
