For people with really dark skin, or brown patchy skin, how to get fair skin is not an easy task, yet fairer skin isn’t impossible, although the natural route takes more work than the unnatural route, the results are lasting, easy to manage and kind to your skin and health.
The Natural Way To Fairer Skin
You probably didn’t know that lemon juice, cucumber juice, orange juice and any citrus juice are natural skin exfoliators that get rid of older, damaged skin and promote new growth. This then naturally makes your skin appear lighter, because older and damaged skin always looks darker. All of these natural vitamin C rich substances are also strong antioxidants that protect the skin from oxidation.
Mixing 2-3 of these natural ingredients together with some sugar and salt, and applying to the face, will act as a natural skin brightener. You can sleep with liquid on, but it isn’t advisable because the ingredients can be sticky and leave temporary marks on your face.
There quite a few effective natural facemask remedies that you can make up at home to lighten the skin, a few of these are featured in my book, “How To Get Whiter Skin”. I also have a number of articles on this site that you can implement into daily life for keeping your skin whiter and lighter.
If you are looking for effective natural skin lightening creams then you will want to consider the two cream market leaders.
The first is Maladerm, a tried and tested product of 5-years. This isn’t strictly a skin whitener, more of a multi-purpose skin lightener. Maladerm contains no hydroquinone, mercury, steroids, or parabens, and works on hyperpigmentation and dark discolorations, age and liver spots, sun spots and freckles, melisma and chloasma and uneven skin tones. I found Maladerm particularly useful for the dark skin on my knees and elbows, but also darker areas on my face. Read more about Maladerm here.
The second is Skin Bright, a very effective skin lightener that contains high levels of Alpha-Arbutin and kojic acid, combined with natural moisturizers to soothe, protect and exfoliate skin. Skin Bright is very effective in brightening skin discoloration and pigmentation spots on all skin types and shades. It works particularly well on sensitive skin, and has worked well on my Asian skin. Read more about Skin Bright here.
The Unnatural Way To Fairer Skin
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you stay away from harmful skin whitening substances like Tretinoin, Hydroquinone, Monobensone and Alpha Hydroxy acids, and don’t ever consider stuff like Cryosurgery or Laser treatments, these surgical procedures can leave you with a horribly uneven tone and permanent skin damage If you want to know how to get fair skin always seek a natural path.
