Yogurt scrub

For this creamy skin whitening scrub you will need:

  • 1 Tablespoon plain organic yogurt
  • ½ Tablespoons raw honey
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon oatmeal

Mix all of your skin tasty ingredients into a bowl, and clean and prep for your face. This mixture is going to be thick and sticky, so make sure to have plenty of towels available. Apply a thick layer to the skin and lay back for around 20 minutes. After the time is up, scrub the remaining mixture using gentle circles on your skin to remove dead skin cells. The yogurt will help to keep your skin moisturized, while the honey will kill bacteria. The secret is in the lemon juice, which is a natural skin lightener.  You can do this treatment once a week for best results.

Aloe Vera Skin Whitening Mask

Aloe Vera can not only heal sore sunburns but also help with hyper pigmentation of the skin. In order to use Aloe Vera as a skin lightener, it is best to use fresh Aloe Vera right from the leaves. You can find fresh Aloe Vera at most stores, as well as wellness and holistic centers. You would want to cut out the outside layers of the plant, so that you can get to the gel in the center.

Apply the gel liberally to your skin and leave on for up to 30-45 minutes. For extra measure, you can even cool the gel in your refrigerator before using. This will also help with inflammation and redness in the skin. Aloe Vera naturally helps your body to produce new skin cells, which can help to lighten the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. For best results, use this mask up to twice a week.
