Dark and dull skin can be caused by overexposure to the sun, environmental pollution, a medical condition, dry skin, stress, poor lifestyle choices, and prolonged use of chemical-based cosmetic products.
Many people work hard to achieve fair and flawless skin. The market is flooded with skin-lightening creams and lotions. But such products have harmful chemicals that can ultimately damage your skin. Oftentimes the products are expensive, too.
You can save yourself some time and money by using natural remedies that will effectively brighten and lighten your skin complexion.
Try this recipe in addition to your personal skin care to naturally lighten dark skin.
- Coconut oil
- A pinch of turmeric powder
- Cucumber juice
- Lemon juice
- Baking soda
Mix all the above ingredients until you get a nice creamy paste and your recipe is ready.
Rub the paste onto your face in circular motion. Allow the juice to rest for at least 30 minutes. Later you may wash it off using lukewarm water. Do this daily for best results.
- Avoid direct sunlight for 1 – 2 hours after application as lemon juice makes skin extra sensitive.
- Never ever apply lemon juice to open wounds.
