The Best Natural Home Remedies For Whitening Your Skin.

Everyone wants flawless and fair skin. Some people are lucky enough to be born with such skin and all they have to do is maintain it and for the rest of us, we weren’t that lucky. Just because lady luck didn’t work in our favour, does that mean we should give up on our dreams of having fair and flawless skin? No! Lucky for you and me, we live in an era where several routes are available to solve a particular problem. 

Several products claim that they can give you the fair and flawless skin you desire and even though some products claims are true, they end up containing chemicals that are not safe for the skin which defeats the purpose of giving you a fair and flawless skin. Don’t get me wrong, some products can be used to whiten the skin and are still safe but with many products in the market, it’s becoming more and more difficult to determine which products are safe and actually work. Rather than going through the stress of trying out different products, most people prefer natural homemade remedies because with homemade remedies you are sure of the ingredients being used and the best part is the natural remedies do work as well.

In this guide, you’ll learn the best natural home remedies you can try to whiten your skin.

Natural home remedies for whitening your skin

In this section, you’ll find some of the best remedies you can try at home with ingredients you can find in your kitchen to whiten your skin.

Lemon juice, milk and honey

Lemon juice is often used for whitening the skin due to its natural bleaching properties. Lemon juice does not only lighten or brighten the skin, it also reduces the appearance of dark spots, treats freckles, and oily skin. Honey on the honey hand serves as an elixir for skin problems—it has antibacterial properties that help in fading pigmentation and scars leaving your skin with a healthy glow.

Natural remedy procedure 

  • Mix one tablespoon of lemon juice, one tablespoon of milk, and one tablespoon of honey.
  • Cleanse your face and afterwards apply the mixture on your face.
  • Keep the mixture on your face for a couple of minutes (for about 20 minutes) before rinsing it off using warm water.

Papaya and honey

Do you enjoy eating papaya? If you do it’s probably because you already know the benefits you stand to benefit from eating it or it may be just your favourite fruit. Papayas aids digestion, gives good eyesight, is great for diabetic patients, has anti-ageing properties amongst many other benefits. 

Papaya contains enzymes like papain and hydroxyl acids which helps with removing dead skin cells, impurities, blemishes, and fading acne scars. Papain is a well known skin-whitening enzyme and its concentration is highest in papaya peels.

Natural remedy procedure 

  • Carry a half cup of fresh papaya pieces and mash them until you achieve a smooth paste.
  • Add a teaspoon of honey into the paste and mix well.
  • Apply the mixture on your face and allow it to stay on your face for about 20 minutes. 
  • After 20 minutes, wash your face using warm water and follow through with cold water.
  • Dry your skin by gently patting it using a towel.

Potato juice

Unlike many skin products that lighten the skin with side effects, potato juice can do the same without causing damage. Potatoes are infused with antioxidants that act as a mild bleaching agent, are rich in vitamin C and can also remove dead cells in the skin. 

After applying the mask on your face you can leave it on overnight and it can last up to 4 days if stored in a refrigerator.

Natural remedy procedure 

  • Carry one potato, peel it, and cut it into small pieces.
  • Apply the potato pieces on the areas you want to lighten to enable the juice through the skin.
  • Leave it for close to 20 minutes before rinsing it off using lukewarm water.

Alternatively, you can grate the potato and then squeeze out the juice. Use a cotton pad to apply it to the affected area.Whitening your skin is great, but having white skin with pimples on doesn’t look pleasant.
