Tips To Get Fairer Skin Make a face pack with cucumber juice and lemon juice. Extract three tablespoon of cucumber juice, mix a tablespoon of lemon juice and combine it with rose water. Apply it on the face neck and arms or on the sun exposed body parts. Leave it for twenty minutes or more and then wash off. Apply it twice daily, for better results. Gram flour is very helpful in preventing suntan and bringing the color back to the skin. Mix it with lemon juice, which proves to be excellent bleach, and blend in some yogurt. Apply it every day, before taking bath, for twenty minutes and then rinse off. See the results in a few weeks only. Turmeric is also an excellent skin-lightening agent and is used in various beauty creams too. Take half teaspoon of turmeric, mix it with milk (preferably raw) and add a few drops of lemon juice. Apply it thoroughly on the face and the neck and leave for twenty-five minutes. It may sting a little, but that only means it is working. Now, rinse off with water. You can make your own home made bleaching agent too. Take one-teaspoon turmeric powder, mix half spoon of curd in it and add a few drops of olive oil. Put in half spoon of curd and a pinch of salt. Mix the ingredients thoroughly and apply on the face and neck. Keep on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse off. Papaya pulp can also be applied directly to the skin, as a skin lightener. Drinking coconut water and applying its milk to the face also proves helpful in getting back the fair complexion. In addition, the mixture of leaves of Holy Basil and crushed orange peels can also be applied on the skin, to improve its complexion. The blend of milk powder with almond oil, honey and lemon juice also brightens the face and gives it a glow. Another remedy would be to mix buttermilk with oats and thoroughly apply it on the face. Leave it for some time and then rinse. It helps in exfoliating the skin and bringing out the natural color. Saffron is an excellent skin-whitener. Mix two, three strands of saffron with little milk and leave it for sometime. When the water turns pink, apply it on the face and neck. Keep for 10-15v minutes and then rinse off. It is one of the most effective home remedies. With all the home remedies, make sure to add lots of fresh vegetables and fruits to your diet. Incorporate protein and drink plenty of water.
