Fair Skin Natural Remedy

Complexion of the skin is affected by several factors including hereditary factors, skin disorders or excessive exposure to sunlight. The dark complexion of the skin is indicative of high levels of the melanin pigment in the skin, which is responsible for protecting the skin against harmful effects of ultra violet rays. If the skin is naturally dark, there is very little that can be done to change the color, however if it has been tanned due to persistent exposure to sunlight, some of the following tips will come to your rescue:

  1. Mix honey, one teaspoon of lemon and a few drops of almond oil in milk or milk powder.
    Apply this paste locally on your face. This mixture will help you regain a natural glow. Practice this therapy about twice a week for a few months to get potential benefits.
  2. Local application of freshly cut raw potato aids in removal of dark spots and blemishes.
  3. Alternatively you can mix turmeric powder with freshly extracted lime juice to improve the quality and color of the skin. Lime juice is natural bleach which aids in improving the skin color.
  4. Diet plays a crucial role in improving the quality, texture and skin color. Ensure that your diet is rich in fruits, vegetables and yogurt.
    These products are rich in anti oxidants and aids reduces damage to the skin caused by free radicals.

      When ever you go out use sunscreen lotion with SPF 30-60. You can use curd/yogurt and turmeric paste to remove the tan. Apply this before going to bed at night. There will a little tinge of yellow color on your skin. In the morning, apply soap while taking bath and the yellow tinge will disappear. This works on my skin, check whether this pack is helpful or not.

    Fair look, oily skin: Apply a mixture of equal amounts of lemon and cucumber juice on the face and whole body. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash off.
    Fair look, dry skin: Apply a mixture of equal amounts of cucumber juice and honey on the face and whole body. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash off.
    About 2 weeks later, people thanked me and informed me, “My complexion is now glowing. All my friends ask me the secret. You are like an Angel for me.”
    Note that if your complexion is dark by birth, then it cannot be changed.

      For few days tell your daughter to avoid swimming. The best home remedy that I have ever known is milk. Apply milk to the tanned area few minutes before going to bath. Follow it regularly. After few days the tanned skin will turn to its original color. Also there are creams available in medical stores which she can apply on her body the next time she swims. These creams prevent skin damage from chlorinated swimming water.

      • Use of lemon juice on the marks helps them to be less visible. It removes the dead skin cells and lightens the scar marks.
      • Massage may help to smooth out the buildup of scar tissue. However it may takes months to before the results are visible.
      • Vinegar: vinegar removes the upper layer of skin cells. This allows fast production of new cells.

      She should stop applying those creams. The body rashes may be allergic reaction to the contents in the cream. Instead there are many home remedies and natural solutions to improve skin complexion. The best is a mixture of turmeric powder, milk and gram flour. Apply it on the skin 10 minutes before taking bath. Follow it regularly. Vegetables and fruits is also a healthy food for glowing and smooth skin.
