Everyone wants to have the best skin they possibly can. And there are many options for those who want to add a tan and darken their skin. But what if you want to lighten your complexion? Is there anything that can do that? The answer is: Absolutely! These simple, easy, DIY skin whitening treatments will give you beautiful, lighter looking, healthy skin in no time at all!
Potato Juice Skin Whitening Treatment
When most people think of “soothing, skin lightening face mask”, the last thing they think of being the main ingredient is “potato”. After all, how could the simple spud help to give someone beautiful skin? The secret here is all in the vitamins and antioxidants! Potatoes pack a lot of Vitamin C, as well as those all-important antioxidants that keep skin looking beautiful and young. There’s even a mild bleaching agent that also helps to remove dead skin cells, lightening and exfoliating all at once! To make this mask, all that you’ll need is a single potato. Cut the potato into inch-sized pieces, rub on the places that need lightening, then let it sit for 15 or 20 minutes. Then rinse! A word of caution, though: this can be drying. Make sure to moisturize. You can use this mask three times per week.
Pumpkin Skin Whitening Treatment
Yes, pumpkin. What most of us associate with pie, lattes, and jack o’ lanterns. Come to find out, it’s a great option for those who are trying to lighten their skin, or just those looking for a soothing face mask in general. This is because that familiar squat, orange veggie is a veritable powerhouse of everything that you could want in a face mask. It contains a healthy amount of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, both great for skin health. There are also a fair amount of antioxidants and even exfoliating acids, to really get into your skin. And we can’t forget beta-carotene! To make this face mask, you’ll need 2 teaspoons of pumpkin puree, ½ teaspoon of honey, and a ½ teaspoon of milk. Mix all of these ingredients together, then apply to your face. Rinse after 20 minutes, using warm water. Use two to three nights per week.
Citrus and Egg Skin Whitening Treatment
We know, we know. It seems like we’re just pulling things out of our fridge at this point. But this mask does a fantastic job of lightening your skin. That’s because of the ingredients list, and all the good stuff that it has in it! Citric acid, found in the lemon and grapefruit juice, naturally cleanses and bleaches the skin, while also tightening your pores. The egg whites have proteins that have antibacterial properties, keeping your face clean and bright, as well. After all, protecting your skin from infections keeps it brighter and healthier. To start, you’ll need 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon of grapefruit juice, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons of sour cream (the regular fat kind, not fat-free). Beat the egg white in a bowl until it’s fluffy. Then, take the sour cream and mix the grapefruit and lemon juice with it. Add to the egg white and mix. Apply to your face, then leave for 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Do this three times a week, at night.
