Many people wish that their skin was whiter. Sometimes this is because you have a tan that you don’t like. Other times, you just wish your skin was a brighter shade of white. Regardless of the reason for wanting whiter skin, there are many things you can do to make your skin appear whiter. These steps can be at home and most are completely natural. They will not harm your skin.
One way to make your skin appear whiter is to apply a mixture of egg white, lemon juice, and olive oil directly to your skin. This mixture should contain one egg white, three tablespoons of lemon juice, and one tablespoon of olive oil. After the mixture has been applied to the skin, it should be left on for ten minutes. After ten minutes, the mixture can be rinsed off with milk that has reached room temperature. This treatment is completely natural and can be repeated as often as needed in order to reach the desired color.
Another mixture that can be applied directly to the skin is one made from flour and milk. To work correctly, the flour and milk need to be mixed together to form a thick paste. The mixture should then be applied to the skin and allowed to sit for at least ten minutes. After this time, the paste can be rinsed off with warm water. Along with whitening your skin, this flour and milk mixture will also work to moisturize you skin.
Melanin is the component of skin that gives it pigment. If you are interested in whitening your skin, you need to consume large amounts of Vitamin C. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the production of melanin, thus reducing the amount of pigment in the skin. Foods high in Vitamin C include fruits and berries, such as oranges, apples, kiwis, and bananas. Vitamin C can also be found in a pill form as a dietary supplement. This can be purchased at any pharmacy and the dosage directions are clearly printed on the label.
Another way that skin can be whitened naturally is through the use of skin whitening soap. This soap can be found at many department stores and most pharmacies. The directions on the package should be followed exactly as directed. Some studies have found that skin whitening soap can be harmful to the skin, so it should only be used as often as directed.
Skin bleaching is another effective way to whiten the skin. Many products are available over-the-counter that are meant to be applied directly to the skin. Skin bleaching products help to reduce pigmentation and clear the skin, causing it to appear lighter in color. There are also skin bleaching products available for people with sensitive skin. Those who decide to bleach their skin should do so carefully, since it can burn your skin if done incorrectly. Many beauticians offer professional skin bleaching services and they will teach you how to correctly perform the bleaching so that you can later do it yourself.
