Are you tired of using skin whitening products that only drain your budget? If you said “yes” then you are definitely going to love today’s delivery of skin whitening home remedies tips.
This particular compound, which is available in ointments and creams, is used to prevent the skin from producing the pigment responsible for dark spots. However, we always advise people to consult with their dermatologists first before using more potent skin whitening products, just to be on the safe side. Here is today’s tip to kick-start your day:
Milk for skin whitening
If you want to lighten your skin with milk without the chemicals that are normally found in commercial milk-based whitening products, why not apply milk directly on your skin?
That’s right – you can actually apply milk on your skin and get more or less the same results as commercial milk-based products. We owe this to a naturally occurring chemical in milk called lactic acid. Lactic acid in milk is responsible for whitening and lightening it.
You will need to apply milk to your face, or any other part that needs to be whitened, for at least a month. You will see the gradual results every week, but the maximum impact of your milk regimen can be seen after a month.
Most people report that this particular method of naturally whitening the skin can reduce skin darkness by half. Here are the steps to get you started:
- You can definitely use regular cow’s milk for the purpose of whitening your skin. Natural goat’s milk is also appropriate since it contains plenty of nutrients that can be absorbed by the skin.
- Pour approximately two cups of milk in a microwaveable bowl. Warm this bowl for 20 to 30 seconds.
- Get a clean cloth to wipe your face with. Dip the whole cloth into the bowl of warm milk.
- Wring off the excess milk gently, but make sure that the cloth still has plenty of milk in it.
- Apply the milk on your skin for ten to fifteen minutes.
papaya skin whitening
Do you feel the need to whiten your skin naturally? If you do, some raw papaya just might help you! Papaya has long been used to naturally whiten the skin and it is 100% natural and safe for virtually all skin types.
In order to partake of papaya’s natural ability to whiten the skin, you will need three small papayas. Slice these papayas and run them through a juicer or food processor. Remove the meat, or pulp, of the papaya and use the juice. Apply generous amounts of raw papaya juice on your face or any other part of your body that needs to be whitened.
If you have dark spots that are unresponsive to natural treatments, you may want to task your dermatologist about hydroquinone cream. Hydroquinone cream acts directly on the skin tissue, reducing the production of the skin’s natural pigment.
Lemon and yogurt for skin whitening
Did you know that two of the most popular food products on the market, lemon and yogurt, are also effective in whitening the skin? That’s right – you can actually get whiter skin by applying these two food items topically. Lemon contains natural astringents that unclog and renew the skin. As we have already discussed, clogged pores can make your skin look dark and dull. Lemon juice is effective in removing deep-seated dirt and excess oils from the skin.
Yogurt, on the other hand, naturally contains lactic acid, which lightens the skin directly. Combine these two ingredients and you will get a soothing, yet super-potent mask, that you can apply twice a week to whiten your face. The best thing about this combination is that lemon juice also helps minimize your pores, which is important for creating the “smooth skin” look that everyone loves.
