Each woman has her own reasons for wanting lighter skin. As long as the method of getting lighter skin is safe and proven, I would argue that it is your right to make the choice about your skin color. These skin lightening home remedies will help you to whiten your skin naturally without putting yourself at risk from harsh chemical bleaching.
This is one of the most simple and basics tips you can follow to slightly lighten your skin. You have to use daily for a long period of time in order to see real skin whitening results.
You just massage plain yogurt into your face or areas you want to lighten, leave on for a few minutes and then wash off. You won’t see immediate results but over time you should see that your skin is less dull.
Oranges and Lemons
These are chock full of Vitamin C which is not only good for your skin, it can help to lighten it as well. This is one of the most effective skin lightening home remedies available.
If you have dark patches and pigmentation problems on your knuckles or elbows for example, putting the juice of an orange or lemon on the affected area can help to reduce pigmentation issues and make the area lighter and brighter.
If you find applying the juice neat stings or is too harsh, mix it in with your plain yogurt and leave on as a mask. This will allow the vitamin C to penetrate deeper and get to work on deeper layers of skin.
Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth)
A traditional lightening treatment from India, wearing a face-mask made of Multani Mitti powder mixed with rose water helps to reduce hyper-pigmentation and both lighten and brighten your skin.
This is an extremely cheap method of getting lighter skin. Unfortunately it takes months or even years of daily use to see a real difference.
The soothing gel from the Aloe Vera cactus has been used in many traditional skin lightening home remedies for centuries.
It is a pleasure to use, if you like the Aloe scent, and can be applied neat or mixed in with other herbal ingredients to make a paste.
Leave the paste on your chosen area or face for 5 minutes maximum.
This herbal treatment is gentle on your skin and has the benefits of calming any acne you may have, and moisturizing your skin.
Should I Buy a Skin Lightening Product?
You are probably looking to use one of these skin lightening home remedies because you are tired of using or being sold products that are filled with harsh chemicals. The truth is that many skin lighteners are harsh and even dangerous.
A new product has launched for effective skin lightening that is:

It works better than my home remedies because it has proven, concentrated ingredients that are gentle yet effective for whitening skin.
It is called Zeta White and is a 3 part system for quickly lightening skin and getting rid of dullness for brighter, radiant skin.
