The desire for a fair skin is common to human race with women particularly vying for a fair complexion. This is why they spend dollar after dollar on purchasing creams and products that promise to make them look magically like Cinderella.
Alas, these products do their bit of a job by improving the skin tone for the time being, but they leave behind a terrible trail of telltales. Scars, blemishes and hyperpigmentation are only a few of the many side effects that these skin whitening products leave behind. You instead need to opt for something healthier, no?
Here, try our top 5 natural remedies to get a fairer skin tone.
1. Fresh Coconut Water
Coconut water is an amazing gift from Mother Nature that is very high on nutritional value. It is loaded with refreshing properties, making it an excellent beverage particularly popular in the tropical regions. When applied on the face, it can do wonders.
Simply wash your face with coconut water once every day. You’ll notice significant improvement in your skin tone only after a couple of days. Problems like acne can also be effectively dealt with its usage.
2. Milk & Lemon
Milk, loaded with enzymes, is a natural whitener. It has moisturizing properties, which when combined with the anti-oxidant qualities of lemon can create a remarkable mixture that whitens and deep cleanses the skin.
To get a whitening effect on your entire body, empty a cup of fresh milk and one lemon juice into a bathtub full of water. Lie down in there for twenty minutes, once every week. Within a month you’ll notice an improvement in your skin tone.
As yummy as tomato soup is to the taste buds, raw tomato is an outstanding whitener for skin.
Tomato can form a perfect pack for removing signs of tan and sunburn, and helps reducing the visibility of dark spots.
All you need to do is to take two tomatoes in a blender, add two tablespoons of lemon juice and blend till thick. Apply this mask on your face for 20 minutes before you shower.
Potatoes are another great source of skin whitening with a proven track record.
You only need to take a few potato slices and let it rest in cold water for a few minutes. Rub them on your face gently and boom! Those darks spots and blemishes will appear less and less visible until they fade off completely, giving you a fairer complexion.
5. Fruit Masks
We admit it; natural, home-made fruit face masks can get a bit messy, but if you can manage them nicely, they can do wonders on the skin. Most fruits are heavily loaded with vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants; all of which are good at whitening the skin tone. You can create a fruit mask by combining any of your favorite fruits; such as papaya and banana; orange and strawberry; and grapes and apple.
Just mix them in a blender, add a bit of honey and a few drops of lemon and you’re good to go to use them on your face.
