If you are a little aware of what’s happening around in the beauty circle, you’ll find that half of the women population is crazy about lightening their skin. It is believed that getting a fairer skin tone, as it were, is a mark of feminine beauty that would make them emerge to prominence everywhere in life, be it their social life, personal life or even in their professional life. There are in fact some social taboos associated with a woman’s complexion in the Asian countries and that has given rise to some psycho-social stereotyped notions about fairness in the Indian women.
A prayer for lighter skin or fair complexion is perhaps one most common prayer every marriageable girl in our country engages in. But instead of investing in the chemical based skin whitening bleaches or fairness creams that may damage your skin thoroughly in the long run, its best to opt for certain homemade skin whitening face pack recipes.
Here are some of my proven skin-whitening face pack recipes which you might try:-
- Mix 2 tbsp raw milk, 2 tbsp turmeric powder and 1 tbsp Almond oil to make a skin whitening face pack. Apply the pack all over your face. Keep for 15 minutes and then rinse off with cool water. Raw milk, rich in lactic acid removes all dead cells from your skin and whitens skin naturally by bringing to the fore the fresh lower layer of your skin. Turmeric imparts a beautiful glow to your skin while almond oil moisturizes it thoroughly.
- Dilute the juice of half a lemon with 4-5 drops of Rose water. Lemon juice has citric acid. Thus it acts a natural bleaching agent, removing all tan, spots and blemishes quite gently from your skin. Diluting the juice removes the sting from the juice which many find intolerable. Rose water will rejuvenate your skin with a unique aromatic freshness.
- Mix the pulp of a mashed tomato with 2 tbsp sandalwood powder. Both are excellent skin whitening ingredients. Tomato has certain acids and enzymes that can whiten your skin and sandalwood powder too can do that. Applying this face pack with definitely give you a lighter and brighter skin tone.
- Mix yoghurt 2bsp with 1 tbsp honey and 2 tbsp chickpea flour to make a smooth thick face pack. Keep for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Yoghurt undergoes fermentation, is acidic and hence bleaches your skin gently giving you a lighter skin tone. Honey moisturizes and softens skin sufficiently.
- Mix 2 tbsp Coconut oil, 1 tbsp sea salt and 2 tbsp orange juice to make skin whitening scrub face pack. The coconut oil is the best scar remover. Orange juice being acidic bleaches your skin and sea salt exfoliates skin to give it a unique fair glow.

Mix 2 tbsp milk cream into the walnut paste and apply the face pack all over your face. This will exfoliate your skin thoroughly removing the top tanned layer and bringing to the fore the radiant glowing white skin.
