Dark skin is caused by a number of reasons; it could be overexposure to the sun, poor lifestyle choices, dry skin, or prolonged use of chemical and cosmetic products. Most people work so hard in order to achieve fair and unblemished skin even in their private organs.
The demand is high, and the market is filled with skin-lightening lotions and creams. Unfortunately, most of these products have detrimental chemicals that can damage your skin. Luckily, there are natural ways of lightening your skin without any side effects.
Here are three easy-to-do natural skin whitening treatments that will improve and lighten your skin within three weeks.
These nuts are not only healthy, but they also work as a skin-whitening agent. These nuts are best used in a cream or lotion form. In addition, almond nuts are rich in vitamins, which helps the skin retain moisture. One ideal method to use almond nuts as a natural skin whitening is to mix up almond oil with olive oil. You can apply the mixture before you go to bed for good results.
Yogurt is a milk by-product and is not known to be a natural skin whitening agent. Nevertheless, it contains lactic acid, which is well known to be a natural skin whitening agent. As a skin treatment, you can softly rub the yogurt directly to the skin. Leave it for about 20 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. You can continually use it every day for maybe a month, and you will begin to see some changes in your skin.
Slice a lemon juice into two and squeeze the lemon juice into a container. Dilute the lemon juice with water; you can start with one part juice with one part water. If you find it too strong, add water to the mix. Apply it to the skin or part that you wish to lighten and let the juice sit on the skin for about 15-20 minutes. It is important that you do not expose the skin to the sun at this moment as the lemon juice makes your skin hypersensitive to sunlight. Rinse off the lemon juice from the skin with warm water. Lemon may cause skin dryness thus it is advisable that you apply a moisturizer. You can repeat this process at least 2-3 times a week.
One of the advantages of using these natural skin whitening treatments is that all the ingredients used are natural without any chemical, and you can easily find the ingredients in your home.
