Many people now want to covet a fair and rosy skin. Unfortunately, the sun can make our skin dark, dry and ugly. Prolonged sun exposure can significantly darken our skin and can also make us more susceptible to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The good news is, there are a lot of treatments that can quickly lighten your skin and give you the fair skin that you have always wanted. Let me tell you some of the best ones:
1. Mix alum powder and honey. Use this as a mask. Apply it on your skin liberally and let it sit there for an hour before washing it off. Alum crystals can be bought from the drug store or from a health and wellness store. Pound the crystals until they turn into powder. Mix it up with honey.
Alum can help lighten the skin. Honey also has bleaching properties so it can improve the color of your dermis. Use this treatment every night until you achieve the results you want.
2. Papaya and lemon juice both have whitening properties. Try getting the extract of ripe papaya. You can also mash it and mix it with a cup of lemon juice. Massage the mixture all over your skin. Make sure you apply the mixture religiously so your skin can absorb the whitening agents in the ingredients. Let it sit there for an hour before washing it off.
3. It is also important to drink Vitamin C supplements. This can help inhibit the excessive production of melanin in your body. This vitamin can also make you less susceptible to sun damages.
Vitamin C can also be found in fruits and vegetables. Try drinking freshly-squeezed fruit juices to supply Vitamin C into your body.
4. Look for a whitening moisturizer that contains Extrapone Nutgrass, Phytessence Wakame and Manuka Honey.
Extrapone Nutgrass is a type of plant with root extracts that can inhibit melanin production. Studies have found out that this plant can actually make your skin whiter by up to 45% during the first two weeks of use. This is an ideal ingredient for people who are looking for fast and easy solutions.
Phytessence Wakame is not really a bleaching agent but it can make your skin less susceptible to skin damage and less susceptible to skin darkening. This sea kelp can help preserve healthy levels of hyaluronic acid. This is the acid needed to lubricate collagen fibers.
Manuka honey can even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of spots. It also works well in locking moisture in your skin cells and tissues.
