      #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.

      #Ieraa & #shabnam for body whitening, the most easiest method is to make a thin paste of gram flour, turmeric powder and curd. Apply this paste twice a week on your whole body while having bath regularly. It will show result soon and your skin will look brighter and glowing.

      Yes, you can use curd. There is not much difference in curd and yogurt. It is just the difference in the fermenting process.
