#Karishma.. as you said that your skin is extremely sensitive, so I suggest you to visit skin specialist first before trying any home remedy or any other thing for yourself. All above listed home remedies are wonderful for skin whitening, but for extreme sensitive skin, any thing can cause rashes etc. So, skin specialist can suggest you better.
