Natural methods of skin lightening may not provide immediate results, but over time you will enjoy the very same results than if you were to undergo some sort of chemical treatment that may be dangerous and damaging to your skin.

 

 

 

Most Effective Skin Whitening Home Remedies

Start with Sunscreen

The most important step you can take to protecting your skin and keeping it as light as possible is to wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine, and regardless of what season it may be. Sun rays can be just as damaging to your skin in the winter as they can be in the summer, so make sure that you wear at least an SPF of 15 (though preferably 30 or higher) on a daily basis all over your face to keep it protected. Wearing sunscreen will not only help keep your skin as light as possible, but it will also prevent premature aging and skin cancer.

 

Make your Own Skin Lightening Mask

You can make your very own skin lightening mask or “pack” to lighten up your skin tone. To do so, take a pack of kaolin clay and then add in 5 or more drops of fresh tomato or lime juice. Mix in fresh sandalwood paste. Once you have created a mask-like consistency with all of the ingredients, apply it to your face and leave it on for at least 10 minutes before you go to bed. Remove it with lukewarm water, and hydrate your skin with a quality moisturizer.

Use Licorice

One of the most effective ways to naturally lighten up the skin is to use face packs that you make out of licorice. Licorice has an ingredient called glabridin” in it, something that helps inhibit the pigmentation of the skin by preventing any tyrosinase activation.

 

Try Kojic Acid

Perhaps one of the most effective natural skin lightening treatment that you can try is kojic acid. Kojic acid has recently been used to help treat any sort of pigmentation problems in patients, particularly those who have age spots, though it has been found to naturally lighten the entire face as well. How? Kojic acid contains an ingredient that helps put a stop to the production of melanin, a product that allows for our skin to turn brown (such as developing freckles, birthmarks and age spots).

 

Lemon Juice should be Used in Small Quantities

Something that a lot of people have heard is that lemon juice will help lighten your skin. While this is definitely true, it is important for a user to know that lemon juice, when applied directly to the skin, is not only extremely drying to the skin but it is also very irritating. Make sure that you use it sparingly (if at all) or mix it with some other material that will be far less of an irritant (such as yogurt).
