Tips To Lighten Your Skin and Fade Out Blemishes

Updated on October 26, 2011

Majority of dark or darker women want to be lighter. While lighter women want to be tanned. It's funny how we want to change our natural color thinking that we would look more beautiful if we do so. However, it is important to note that beauty comes from within. We can't blame people who think like this as a lot of people judge an individual by his/her color. It is depressing at times. A lot of people from Asian countries as well as these individuals believe that you are more appealing and beautiful if you are lighter. It is not right all the time, however, a lot of people strive hard to achieve it.

There are some home remedies that would help us lighten our skin. It would just take for a few minutes if you apply it to yourself daily, then a significant improvement in your skin color will be seen in a week or two. Below are some home remedy tips to lighten your skin.

Try squeezing a slice of lemon to your yoghurt (natural is better, fruit flavored would be too sweet), about ΒΌ of the regular yoghurt sold in the supermarket. Mix the two well then apply the mixture to your skin. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes then rinse well. Do this daily for a least two weeks. Even in just a week, a more youthful, lighter and healthy skin will be observed. Please note that this result is temporary. If you continue doing the regimen, you will get continued result.

Another is to lighten pimple scars and blemishes. Try crushing a cucumber slightly, then squeezing out the juice with your hands, into a small bowl. Add a few drops of lemon and apply to the affected area. The results will depend on how dark the scars and blemishes are. Very light scars start fading away after a week, and the complexion looks even. Darker scars will take a lot longer.

      Just looking around for information on specific juice recipes; I think it’s important that people take a stand by taking additional time out of their busy schedule to really monitor the kinds of foods and juices they’re allowing to infiltrate their body; excellent hub by the way.

      When I was younger my skin colour was white and I liked it now after years of being exposed to the African sun I'm much darker, especially my arms, legs and face. My body is still light in complexion but it also darkened. The sun is killing, I'll definitely try out these remedies.
