Don’t stick to Photoshop or airbrushing. You can now have a fairer skin just by using simple, natural remedies. Your secret to a glowing skin is given below:

Potato

Potato isn’t only a chef’s delight, but is also loved by dermatologists. This largely produced vegetable has natural bleaching properties. It lightens patches and blemishes, adding a glow to your skin.

It’s very easy to use. Take thin slices of fresh potato and apply to the affected skin. Leave it as it is for around half an hour allowing the skin to absorb the juice. After 30 minutes, wash your skin and dry. You’ll see significant changes.

Lemon Juice

Lemon is natural bleach and helps remove dark spots. Take a few juicy lemons and mix their juice with an equal amount of water and mix well. Now apply the solution for 10 minutes. Do it twice a day for better results.

Mint

Mint leaves make a great paste for your skin. Use a blender to mix the leaves. You can also add some water to make the paste a bit juicy. That would make it easier to apply on the skin. Leave the mixture on your face for around 20 minutes before washing it with warm water. The good part is that you can apply it all over your face and not just the damaged skin.

Honey Yogurt Mask
Honey and yogurt are both delicious and when mixed together, they make a great face mask. The mixture helps improve the texture of the skin, reducing dark spots and lightening your skin.

This mask is very simple to make. Simply add two spoons of yogurt, one teaspoon of honey and two tablespoon of oatmeal. Mix them well using a spoon or a fork. Make sure the mixture is soft enough to be applied before putting it on your face.

Once the mixture is ready, apply it on the face evenly and leave it for a while to dry. Give yourself time to rest and don’t move your face a lot. Once the mask has totally dried, rinse it off with warm water.
Aloe Vera

Your skin loves Aloe Vera. This substance alone has a lot of great advantages to it. Those who find it difficult to eat it (because of its bitter taste) can apply it directly over their skin. Remove the plant’s skin and apply the juicy material on the acne spots over your skin. This is a natural anti-bacterial with great properties. It kills the bacteria on your skin and also improves the color of your skin. This method is slow and can take a month, but really works.

Turmeric and Lime

Mix turmeric and lime and apply it on the affected area. It is great for the black spots on your skin, thanks to the acne. Leave the mixture for around 10 minutes before washing it off with warm water. Both turmeric and lime are great for the skin, and when mixed together they make great bleach that has the power to improve your complexion.

Eggs

You can use eggs to make hundreds of dishes, but do you know you can also use it to cure your oily skin? It is very simple, separate the egg white from the yolk in a bowl. Beat the egg white till it is bubbly. The bubble shows that the mixture is ready for you to apply over your skin. Apply it gently over your face and neck, and leave it to dry for few minutes. Once dried, wash it off with warm water and use a towel to dry the skin.
