How to Make Skin Lightening Cream at Home

Updated on October 21, 2012

Fade Dark Spots & Uneven Skin Tone with Home Remedies

Dark spot correcting creams sold at department stores can be extremely expensive and often times harsh on the skin. Making your own skin lightening cream at home is both an economical and earth-friendly way to get the brighter, more even-toned skin you crave. These all natural ingredients have been proven to reduce dark pigmentation and will leave your skin looking flawless in just a few weeks of use.

Yogurt, Almond and Lemon Juice Night Cream

Crush three or four almonds in a food processor and pour them into a small bowl. Add 1 and 1/2 cups plain organic yogurt, and two tablespoons lemon juice. Mix thoroughly.

Apply a light layer of the cream to your face every night before bed. Wash with cool water in the morning. This at home skin lightening cream is one of the most powerful and fast acting creams you can make, so be careful to use it properly. Overuse could dry out your skin. It's also important to remember to wear sunscreen when using this treatment to prevent further discoloration.

Lemon, Egg White and Turmeric Brightening Mask

This easy to whip up brightening mask contains three very potent natural ingredients that have been used for centuries to lighten the skin.

Mix together one egg white, one tablespoon of lemon juice and half a teaspoon of turmeric powder in a small bowl. Apply to the skin and leave on for 15-30 minutes. Rinse well with cool water. This treatment can be done three times per week until the desired results are achieved.

Buttermilk and Lemon Whitening Treatment

Buttermilk is a powerful skin lightening ingredient, plus it also aids in boosting skin's moisture levels. This dark spot fading treatment can be used nightly or as needed. Be sure to use a good sunscreen the next morning to protect your complexion.

Soak a large slice of lemon in about half a cup of buttermilk. Allow it to soak for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Remove the lemon and squeeze the excess juice out into the mixture. Dab a cotton ball in it and swipe across your face before bed. In the morning, rinse with cool water and apply a good sunscreen.
